That's not denying that the programming fundamentals are important. They ARE! But I think making a game WOULD be a practical way to learn programming. Maybe even more fun than some ways :) And if doing that game programming is easier than it used to be... so be it :)
Tools: LightWave + Unity. Games: educational, promotional, and shareware. Hardware: Intel Mac... hopefully.
