Tonnes, but you'll need to be more specific about what you're looking for.

The BBC is getting ready to release the Mac version of the first two Doctor Who Adventure Games, which are good OpenGL type runaround quest games. You'll get BOTH of them for $5 (!!!) when available.

You don't have to know anything about Doctor Who to play the games (though of course the show is AWESOME). I find them excellent for what they are.

And further to chas' post be aware that Mac games have a small distribution base, making each game much dearer than the equivalent on PC. The words "Mac' and 'cheap' do not go together at any time!

many of the blizzard games are relatively inexpensive (warcraft 3 in particular). not sure if you're interested in that, but you could get the wc3 battle chest for like $20 or less (which includes both reign of chaos and frozen throne). that game will be around forever.

I have often found that waiting until the hype dies down on Mac games often means scooping them up for cheap-cheap. You can check places like MacGameStore.com for good deals.

Steam also has some nice older games at reasonable pricing. It's worth checking out also. Their library for the Mac has been growing steadily.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Thanks guys! Honestly I'm just looking for any type of game. I use Steam for TF2, Portal and some others and I do like that interface.

Steam is good whether you're using Windows or Mac as every so often they have really good deals for older games or even temporarily give them away for free. I downloaded Portal on this iMac via Steam for free a while back simply because they were giving it away for nothing.

I already had it on my Xbox 360, but still...
