You can start with classic AI, algorithms such as A*, Alpha-Beta Pruning and friends. Understand the heuristics. Make a little algorithm that can play Chess or whatever and see how it works. I'm certain that whatever it is that modern games use, understanding these classics will be a great foundation for you.
