Well, if you want to make games you should probably learn c/c++, but you could also learn Java (hmm..., not a personal favorite).
If you want something easy try to start with TCL and then advance with TK to make it graphical. Other useful script languages are Perl and Python.
For jobs I would certainly recommend C/C++ although they are not the easiest to begin your programming with.
If you like making webpages you can always learn PHP, I didn't find it too hard to learn when I was new to programming.
My tips would be to start with something easy just to get the hang of programming and then you can advance to more complicated and powerful languages. Once you learn the basics you will see that most languages share a common form.
Good luck and happy coding.
