Looking for some games to pass the time for my 1.2Ghz iBook. I used to be a heavy gamer (mostly online FPS titles) but have cut back tremendously. I don't expect to use my iBook for heavy gaming, just occasional fun.

So, knowing that it's a 12" 1.2Ghz iBook, what games do you recommend that will still run great on my machine? List out your favorites, whether it be Halo or Snood (so addictive!). I also used to love this space-sim called Escape Velocity. That was a cool one.

This is a kinda antique game but how about StarCraft BroodWar?

I was thinking about UT2004. Does that run decent on an iBook?

UT2004 (only demo but I play the same stage all the time on Team Deathmatch anyways), Sim City 4, Football Manager 2005, Warcraft III and Airburst Extreme work fine on my iBook. Obviously not on all max detail and at mega-fast FPS though.

Unreal 2004 won't boot on your iBook. You can pick up the original Unreal Tournament for $9 at a store and play it in classic! :eek:

I second the vote for just filling your hard drive with emulators.

Explain emulators to me, or point me to an easy-to-read, newbie tutorial on them. What all do I need and where do I go?

A lot of the newer games won't because of the restrictive video capabilities. But a good portion should be playable.

Emulators are software that emulates a certain machine, for example arcade machines or consoles like NES and Genesis. Newer consoles like N64 and Playstation have emulators that are more tricky to run and the files of the games are large in size. Emulators of the 8 and 16 bit home consoles are easy to find and small. I'm at work now and can't remember the name of the good emulators I use on my Mac box, but when I get home I can post them for you.
