Deus Ex: HR (you probably forgot :-)
There was this great military shooter Close Combat: First to Fight. I got Universal Binary patch but I am not sure if it is playable on modern Intel machines.

Correct; this was Bungie's first major release before the Marathon series which are, in my opinion, still the best games ever released on any computer platform.

What happened to Pfhorums, though? I checked it today, and it won't load. Perhaps the server is down/gone/fubar?

Another older one I remember playing the demo of on my long gone Performa 6400... Killing Time.

The subwoofer in the 6400's tower made the shotgun rather loud if I recall correctly

Is it worth noting which of these will or will not play on OS X?

I'm not accepting PPC ports. And no, it does not count.

Call of Duty 1, 3 and 4.
Call of Duty Black Ops
<-already added, goes under COD
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction

Star Trek: Voyager- Elite Force

Redneck Rampage <- I'm only including native ports, emulated ports, source ports, and FPS that can be run on Intel Macs running OSX 10.5+. DOSBox does not count, and anyway, this game sucks

World War 2 Online - Battle Ground Europe
<- already added

If I can find any more you have not listed I'll let you know.
I'm pretty sure Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction is not an FPS.
