    Hmmm....I haven't really tried any games on my Mac yet, that's why I kept my PC haha. But I can assume that most Mac games are probably not freely downloadable. Maybe you can download a preview of the game? I'm sure others will come to post who have games for the Mac.

    The Summoner (in osx under classic mode, I dont lag at all)
    Ghost Recon
    Myth III
    WWII Online
    Tropico
    Diablo II
    Giants: Citizens of kabuto
    Age of Empires II

    Hi nikon,
    I understand your predicament, however, we can't post that type of information on these boards since it's in direct violation of the Forum Rules:


    No illegal activity - Warez specifically
    So while you're free to discuss the games themselves or where you can buy them from, please refrain asking where to download them from for free.

    17" iMac G4 800MHz 1GB RAM
    The majority of those games have demo that let you at least play the first couple levels. I would start there. I know that's what I've done a couple times.

    Yeah, i would suggest a demo. Mac Gamefiles should have most of them.
    Medal of Honor just released a demo.. and Wolfenstein has a beta or a demo runnin around.

    "board games" - nothing beats that intensity

    other good software sites:
    Version Tracker
    Mac Update
    Aqua Files (not so good)

    FireStorm ( I had to, heh) (actually FS has been takin a break, to much school)

    medal of honor demo? im there

    FS's break is over... production is up 150% (1.5 * .5 hours per day = 3 hours per day)

    yeah im writing the FS_License Obj-C class right now (smells like a FS update to me) i would explain it more, but since i dont want to help out hackers... i wont
