    on an intel mac running bootcamp, that meets the requirements of a given game, you should be able to run pretty much any "windows" game.

    the selection designed to run on OS X natively is much smaller.

    It has to be made for OS X to run on OS X or made for Windows to run on Windows. It's just that most game makers opt for Windows because the user base of OS X isn't very big. However, the OS X user base is getting a lot bigger and many big game makers like EA are beginning to make OS X versions of their games.

    If there's a Windows-only games you want to play, you can run Windows via Bootcamp and play them. I play Counter Strike on my Macbook Pro and it runs really well. It would be more helpful to know which games you're interested in.

    Specs:
    Al iMac 20" 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Intel OS X - play games for Intel Macs.
    Power PC OS X - play older games for PPC Macs.
    PC games - play any PC game on Windows, installed through Bootcamp.

    If you're serious about games, install Windows and play PC games on your Mac.
