    Simply, Mac Games.
    Mac OS X Version 10.5.1
    2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    2 GB Ram (upgraded from 1GB)

    Where is the best place to find simple MAC Games? I just bought my MacBook and it will be primarily used for work; CS3. However, I would like to have a few simple games that won't test the limits of my weak integrated graphics card and will just give me a little break when I'm not working. Thanks Guys!

    Thanks for the response, but just to clarify, what are "proper" games? I am looking for a game or two to download or buy for the computer, I won't have internet access when traveling, so I'm trying to get a few games onto the HD.

    As a point of reference, games like the original Tycoon series are very fun/addicting and won't push the graphics at the least bit. On a side note, is there any SAFE online sites to download games?

    you can download fun flash games. Against forum rules to say where you can get/find cd games.

    i find the sims 2 very good. look for macsoft they are very good at porting games over.

    Snood is a great game for killing time. Are there places to download games like this?

    What do you guys think of Zoo Tycoon 2?

    I've been using GameTap for a couple of weeks now, it works very well with my Mini. There is a lot of variety although most are old games.

    Looks like fun. One more question for a new user as myself, what is a "flash game" and what makes it different then any other game? I'm assuming that you need internet access when you want to play a flash game?

    Sorry for the basic questions guys, but I just don't want to load my computer with any "junk".

    yes, you do need internet access to play flash games, but since they don't technically install themselves on your computer they don't have to be OS specific, nor do they take up any disk space - maybe a little in the browser cache, but that's it.
