I think a basic understanding of C will take you far.

- a lot of languages share "C-like" syntax, c++, java, C#, etc.
- a lot of fs/oss libraries/frameworks/engines/etc have "C" documentation.
- if you were trying to figure out something in the kernel code, C would be handy.
- you can also dive right in and start creating apps. (and not just command line)
- lots of great ide's also support C, netbeans, emacs, etc to name a few.
- oop is confusing as hell!
