New Apple owner here finally looking to purchase some games for my Mac. Any suggestions? Im partial to war, strategy, and sports games. I actually did get one game when I bought my Mac. Tropico. Pretty cool game.

Two great places to look for games:
www.macgamefiles.com
www.insidemacgames.com
One of the best games i have on my iBook is Kill Monty, is simple but very addictive.

Ever try Warcraft III? I love that game. I don't have a Mac (not yet), but I know it's dual install.

Great graphics, cool music and atmospheric sound effects. Tricky puzzles but not impossible. The only downside is that there a few puzzles that require you to use physical skills, i.e timed eye-hand-mouse skills, to complete which really annoys some people - like me for example - if I want those sorts of tests I'll buy a Tomb Raider game.

Myst I-III didn't contains those sorts of puzzles, they only came in with Uru on the PC under Ubisoft control (and boy did the purists and physically challenged complain about them!)

I've just bought Knight Shift which is pretty good, very warcraft like in fact but without the trolls.

i have halo 1,and 2. But was wondering about the HAlo on mac and PC platform. Isn't much much more easier to play with the mouse than the xbox controller?...

Call Of Duty, Halo, Diablo 2 and Warcraft are pretty much staples. Unreal Tournament 2004 is pretty good, but no Single Player really. If you plan to buy UT2004, then buy the Expansion Set since it has a lot of awesome expansion mods like Frag-Ops (Anti Terrorist) and Red Orchestra (WW2>but Call of Duty is better). So all the games I listed are awesome (and I have them all). :biohazard
Halo plays better on Mac then on PC (I have tried it out on my Dad's Dell Latitude and my iBook's performance is better). I have also heard other people say this. I think it is better with a mouse since more precision and easier use. It just seems to flow better.
