    Cave Story. Nuff said. I've never been this addicted to a game. Commercial games can learn a lot from this. mostly the music. which is so melodic and beautiful. against the trend of orchestral junk you get these days.

    Solitaire XL :D

    Should be features in all the Switch campaigns. This is the first thing all former Windows users look for, and they're usually blown away from the implementation... ;)

    I've got America's Army but I don't really care for it. Double is good as a Mah Jongg solitaire game but I play a few online games at Candystand.

    Black Shades, Neverball, Mutant Storm (shareware), sauerbraten (the sequel to cube), Ricochet Lost Worlds (shareware), Water Tower.

    If flash games like CurveBall count, then The Adventures of Fancy Pants Man, though it's not out yet :D

    Frozen Bubble - OS X Tiger port. If you don't have Tiger, you can try this port instead.

    Turn on your pop-up blocker in Safari, I don't have any pop-ups. It works great though! It's so fun to play those old games haha :cool:

    Snes9x Custom is far better for, er, playing legal homebrew games.

    SCUMMVM (www.scummvm.org)... not actually a game, more along the lines on SNESX, it lets you play the old Lucas Arts adventure games, which are my favorites.

    There ARE some games that were made public domain to go with SCUMMVM, namely Beneath a Steel Sky and Flight of the Amazon Queen. So I guess it counts as a full game now?

    FOTAQ has been fun so far, but I've only played it a little bit. BASS was a good one, but the Monkey Island games may be the pinnacle of computer gaming. :)

    Glad to see someone else playing this game. It takes moments to learn to play but takes a long time a master.

    Oh my God -- this game is ridiculously addictive. It's killing my lesson plan efficiency.

    I can't seem to get past level 8?
