Something from about 8-10 years (same vintage as the computer)...so the next thread isn't..."Why does "xxyy" game play so poorly on my 8-10 year-old Powermac G4??"

Seriously though...many games released in the past (at least) 2-4 years are "Intel Only"...so this seriously limits the newer title choices (besides the older hardware & older OS limitations).

As far as game suggestions...you should probably give us some idea of what game genre you're into...that way the suggestions will be more meaningful...rather than getting a lot of "first person shooter", puzzle, card games, RPG, etc. suggestions that you may not be into.

I like all genres. I love RPGs and RTSes.
