    www.abandonia.com has dozens of old DOS games, some of them classics. You are not confined to playing these only on Intel-powered Macs since you can use DosBox on PPC Macs.

    The 3 games from the Escape Velocity series, although the newest iteration of the game limits what you can do unless you pay.

    [shameless plug] Go download The New Satan Sam. It's very difficult but completable (a bunch of guys who completed Echo World hover around my forums). But is Windows only. Thanks Patmian212 ;) [/shameless plug]

    Cave Story is an awesome game styled like the old Metroid games. It's very very fun and the most addictive game I've played since ever. It's PC and OSX, which is always good.

    If you do have a Windows PC or Intel Mac I'd also strongly recommend the following;
    -Mr. Stumps Dentures
    -Jonny RPG
    -Crystal Towers
    -The Cheese Factory Incident

    Not really a free game but they're starting a free open beta for a whacky looking game. So… it's free… for the time being :D

    http://www.banghowdy.com/download.html

    Bang! Howdy
    (Fast paced tactical strategy gun in a wacky Wild West world)

    Looks fun ^_^

    It's cross platform (OS X, Linux, Windows)

    System Requirements:
    Mac OS X 10.4 or newer
    1Ghz Processor
    512MB of RAM
    J2SE 5.0 Release 4 installed

    Edit: I'm not able to launch it on my Intel iMac but it works fine on my old Powerbook. :/

    Scorched Earth 3d (scorched3d.co.uk) Fun to play, multiplatform and free. Jimmi, did you ever get it to compile and run?
