Mac Rumors Mac Gaming Links Guide

After 3 years, decided to add new content, specifically a Specific Games Link section and two guide links for the Mac native game, FTL.

I'm also going to go back through it and check for outdated links.

MacRumors Mac Gaming Links Guide.

Thanks to SilentPanda's suggestion, I used W3C's link checker to verify links in this guide. It might be 100% now.

Hey, great work on this, thanks to you from everyone here at MacRumors!

I've got a thought, maybe add a section to the page containing a list of popular games, still for sale, that although labeled as Mac capable, aren't. Prime reason being the removal of PowerPC environment (Rosetta on intel), newbies or those not in the know can go to any WalMart or Amazon.com and buy StarCraft (I), Diablo II, WarCraft III, etc, and they won't work on their "it just works" Mac.

It's a dark spot on Mac Gaming in my opinion, and it seems too difficult now to know if an older game sold on Amazon will work or not, without a load of additional searching / research.

Just a thought.
