    I know that there are not a lot of games out for OS X right now, but I am getting together a bunch of demo games for my sister and her computer.

    What games would you recommend for them.

    I already got Quake III
    Tony Hawk II
    and a bunch of other shareware games from download.com

    thanks

    well i've got:

    giants citizen kabuto
    civilization 3
    myth 3
    red faction (haven't played yet)

    i like giants and civ a lot. i've only played myth a few times...

    and there's always sims and things like that.

    depends what kind of stuff you're into really.

    Unreal Tournament rocks. I don't know if there's a demo or not, but if there is, get it.

    What about...

    The Sims! It's digital crack, man. It also has the added benefit of having 5 or so expansion packs. Trust me on this one. You need The Sims. You want The Sims. You MUST have The Sims. MWAHAHAHAHA!!!

    So far Unreal Tournament, EV Nova and Black & White have manged to keep me from wasting my time :p

    Deus Ex is absolute class. I just wish there was an osx patch available. I guess that's what classic's there for.

    Thanks for all of the pointers. I have already downloaded and filled up two cd's worth of demos.

    That should keep them busy
