    Get a copy of Return to Castle Wolfenstein plus it should run on your system.

    Starwars Battlefront is the only game that comes to mind. I've played Tron 2.0 that game is horrible, and I can't see what RTCW has to do with suggestions for futuristic shooters. ;)

    I guess there is also Star Trek Elite Forces I and II, personally I only played the first and it seemed way too linear to me.

    Deus Ex

    Hm, an appreciation for great things that aren't new releases eh? A rare quality.

    You should like Deus Ex, you may even love it. It even borders on being an RPG which is a very cool element, once you start playing. Awesome story, awesome gameplay, awesome atmosphere, cool weapons/gadgets/and ABILITIES, the graphics were awesome at the time. It was definitely a pioneer and has influenced many of the games of today. When many games seemed linear, Deus Ex broke away from that offered more than one approach/solution to situations in the game; you can 'customize' your abilities; it wasn't purely open ended, even today few games are. It's not just run and gun, some situations require stealth and some require brute force. Deus Ex is a masterpiece even by today's standards.

    They're rather different if you play the multi player games. The single player games have a story. The multi player games are merely mindless shooters.

    unreal tournament 99. i do warn you there is no storyline for this game though.

    i like that "don't care if it's old" quality that you and some people have. means that you don't care about graphics and mainly likes storyline and gameplay. frankly few people that i know of have this quality. "OO! do you know about this game? the graphics are so cool!" and yet the storyline sucks and gameplay is irratating.

    When I played it I found it lame, boring, it had a shocking frame rate... maybe these things have been fixed with an update, but I didn't care enough about the game to try an update. Oh and IIRC it didn't work in wide screen resolutions when I played it, I HATE games that don't work at my ACDs native wide screen resolution.

    But hey it sounds like a couple of you like it, so to the OP give it a go and see what you think it gets a big thumbs down from me. :D

    System Shock was made for the Mac (not System Shock 2 though), but it doesn't work with Classic very well...it runs, but the screen never updates so it's kinda hard to tell what's going on. (You can get it to run properly if you want to mess around with emulators like SheepShaver though.)

    How about Quake 2? It's OK, and even has an OS X native port. Tron 2.0 is fine but needs a decent graphics card if you want to get good frame rates with all the graphic stuff turned on. (It runs great on my system but then I have an X800.)
