Whether you’re a hardcore gamer or just someone with few reliable games you play to blow off steam, this is the week for you at We’re concentrating on Mac games, as we induct 10 new titles into Macworld’s Game Hall of Fame, located in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

(Why Pittsfield? Because way back when, the original author of the Hall of Fame feature, Steven Levy, decided the fictional Hall of Fame should be located in his hometown, where it’s remained ever since, through a succession of Hall of Fame installments and Macworld Game Room columnists. Impress your friends with this bit of arcane Macworld trivia!)

Our guest in this installment of the Macworld Podcast is the man responsible for selecting this year’s Hall of Fame class— senior editor and Game Room guru Peter Cohen. We talk about some of Peter’s favorite games from 2005 and the upcoming releases he’s looking forward to in 2006.

Read up on Peter’s Hall of Fame picks in part one and part two of the Game Hall of Fame feature from the January 2006 issue of Macworld. Peter also had some gamer gift ideas in the Macworld Gear Guide from the December 2005 issue.

On an unrelated note, in our recent podcast on the Portable Media Expo and Podcast Expo, I mentioned something I saw at the trade show—a display of every iPod ever made, similar to the famous Evolution of Man image. Patrick Stewart, of Denton, Texas, was kind enough to send along an image of the iPod Evolution that he created:
