I’ve been playing video games for almost twenty years. I feel like I could make a separate list for my favorite sport, adventure, role-playing, puzzle and strategy games, but this list represents a few from each category. These are the ones that stand out the most, the ones that had the right mix of challenge to keep me coming back for one more game.

  1. Myst
  2. Sokoban
  3. Civilization
  4. Harvest Moon
  5. Karate Champ (tied with) Kung Fu Master
  6. SimCity
  7. Settlers of Catan
  8. Return to Castle Wolfenstein
  9. Call of Duty: World at War
  10. Fieldrunners (iPod/iPhone)

Using GarageBand 09, you can easily and drag and drop a video file into your project area. Mute the audio from the video and start build your own soundtrack to the video. GarageBand has many short audio loops (sound effects, music segments, etc) for you to combine to enhance your video. BEWARE, you can spend many, many hours playing with the audio loops trying to find the perfect one. Have fun, but don’t get lost in the your project.
