I use FL Studio, and I find that to be a power DAW that's very accessible. It's not very often that my idea are limited to the DAW, but come from my own shortcomings, which propel me to improve my own internal skills. There's plenty of tutorials on the web along with free plugins for sounds. The base price isn't too bad either.
Haven't done any for a game yet, but Reaper is my DAW of choice, coupled with a ton of VST plugins from one trick ponies to full-fledged programmable software synthesizers and guitar amp modelers.
Sometimes when I cannot be bothered to load up a project on Reaper and look for proper sounds first, I sketch my ideas in Guitar Pro and export the MIDI to Reaper later.
Reaper is truly awesome - does pretty much everything other DAW's do, and it remains fully functional after the free trial period, and licenses for it are reasonably priced. Only thing I'm missing a bit is a FL Studio style MIDI editor.
Had a soda for the first time in two months at my nephew's birthday party...it's amazing how once you are no longer addicted to soda, they actively taste like poison when you try to drink them. Couldn't even finish it.
