    Borderlands GOTY and anything older from Feral should run fine on your laptop. I know other game makers should have a list of older games as well.

    Stuff like the gta games, the sims, quake 4 and amnesia are some good games that will work and obviously games like angry birds and world of goo will also work :)

    It depends on the type of games you like to play. If you give us a little more information we could tell you some games you might enjoy :). Some of my favorites are Starcraft, Warcraft III, Civilization IV, Imperial Glory, Dragon Age Origins, Real Racing 2, Sid Meier's Pirates!, and Limbo.

    You can also check out the Mac App Store, lots of games available there.

    check out Steam, they can list games by platform. Due to the fact you have Nvidia graphics, and the laptop is 3 years old, you should probably be looking for games that are 3-5 years old, or consider installing windows, since the drivers are better and you'll probably get a few more frames per second on that side too.

    Mac App Store is also a good place to look. Most of the older games might run on your machine.

    I saw you were an FPS fan and decided to give some input.
    Free Games:
    Americas Army (2.5 is latest version for Mac OSX)
    Quake Live
    Urban Terror
    Assault Cube
    Halo Combat Evolved: Demo
    Nexuiz Classic
    Team Fortress 2 (Probably the best game on this list)
    Open Arena

    Paid Games:
    Modern Warfare 4
    Counter Strike
    Borderlands
    Half life 2
    Bioshock
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    I'm not sure if all the paid games will work on your computer, but most of them should work. Probably best to run them on low settings.
