    Games for Mac
    I was wondering if there are any games for Mac that doesn't require a MBP to play. Most of the games ported over to Mac requires a dedicated video card.

    I'm not looking to play anything to graphic intensive like a first person shooter. Heck I'd be happy with just Tiger Woods 2008, but even that needs a dedicated video card.

    Is there any game that I can install on my regular Macbook? I'd like to have something to play/do if I ever needed something to occupy my time and I didn't have the net.

    You can play some of the older games by Blizzard like Warcraft 3, Starcraft, or Diablo 2.

    Most of the newer popular games simply require more horsepower and better graphic cards than the Mb has. There are some of course that will run ok but the majority of the new stuff won't. Even with a MBP you are going to run into that problem. I run into the same problem with a Mac Pro desktop with 4 gigs of ram... Simply put, the Mac, any variety, was not made as a game machine. Usually it is the graphic cards that give you the problem.

    Defense of the Ancients. Its a Warcraft III map/custom game.

    Basshunter does a song about it called DotA.... hahaha

    lol, its alot of fun, its pretty much playing a PVP MMO, but it only last about an hour or so. Its overhead like warcraft 3 but you play on a team and control and level one hero.
