Which games are worth getting for OS/X? I'm not talking about bootcamp - just any games that will work without windows.

The Alice thread has me curious - I see a Mac version of Doom 3 - but I have Doom 3 for the PC already so I assume this is different?

Anyway, curious as to which games I can play without windows and where to get them.

Thanks

Too bad it takes a very powerful system to run that, and it has to be on windows, unless you have an xbox 360.

You know what makes me mad, pc users think there are no games for mac.
There are alot of games for mac, the reason there are so many PC games is because alot of them are crappy, but for mac there are only good ones.

Kicking Monster Butt - WoW definitely...some alternatives to WoW:
Oberin - Mac Only (!). Free
Shadowbane. Free. Download the '15 day trial' and you actually get software updates to the free, full version.

If you're a sci-fi fan, check out Vendetta Online.
Those of us old enough to remember the "space pirate capitalist raider bounty hunter" game "Elite" and it's now-cheesey vector line graphics will love this. Same idea, but WAY cooler and internet play. $10/month.

That's awesome StretchR, I never knew Halo came out for the Mac, and now they have the universal binary released.

Yeah, Halo's been out for a long time. Used to do LAN games all the time with my buddies at college.
