    I stumbled across this when looking for free FPS games... It's pretty much Quake 3 Arena (same engine) but re-skined and re-mapped to make it open source.

    You don't need to buy Quake 3 to run it! Just download the Linux tarball; uncompress it, download the Mac application (called MAC ENGINE), put the mac application in the linux folder you decompressed and voila! Because it runs on a relatively old engine, it runs great on old machines.

    Give it a try for a nice old-fashioned fragfest.

    Another great free Quake3-based game is UrbanTerror. Its a little more complex (you have bleeding, breath, accuracy, etc...) but its very very fun. The graphics are also pretty impressive.

    There was a post on Slashdot the other day about Quake-based games. It seems like they all (or almost all) work for Mac, so I downloaded a few that were linked to in the comments. Here's a link:
