    Baldur's Gate, StarCraft, Diablo II, Myst, Marathon Trilogy, and Warcraft III. Descent 3 wasn't too bad either.

    I tried Descent 3 but couldn't get it to work on either my iBook or my iMac 400.

    The original Descent ran great on my PowerMac 6100 and even better on my iMac.

    I remember back we didn't have a cable for the external CD-ROM to connect to the 6100, so we networked it to our PB 520 (which did have a cable) and mounted the Descent CD over the network.

    Ah, the crazy hedonism of the late '90s...

    Dark Castle was a great b/w.
    Solarian II ruled the arcade games until...
    Maelstrom. Changed the Mac shareware scene.
    Marathon
    Myth

    Anyone ever play, "Fly, Don't Die"? That was my contribution to the Mac game world. Made $115 with it!

    Warcraft 3 has got to be on the list. Even if you don't like it the greatest RPG meets strategy ever. Too bad the storyline wasn't as good as Starcraft's.

    I have to say that any Sim City game I've played has been a terrific way of killing a good month or two of my life. :)

    ahhhh Power Pete yeah that was great.

    Glider was good, and is still good now it's free.

    Old games seemed to have a charm the new ones lack.

    Though this might get thrown out on a technicality since it was an appleII game.

    Lemonade stand too, for that matter.

    New ones? Only been on the mac for a year, soooo...Simcity4 and Stronghold. and Heroes of Might and Magic III.

    There was a Mac version of Bolo too, IIRC.

    My top ten would be, in no particular order: SC2k, UT, Armor Alley, the original Spectrum Holobyte version of Tetris, Baldur's Gate, EVO (or Nova... tough call), Missile Command (with an insane AI), Myst, Total Annihilation, and Civ II MGE.

    Bolo Rocked

    I used to play Bolo with a group of about 10 people every month. We would meet at someone's house and bring our machines over. We'd talk about Apple's new hardware and new software and play several networking games, but we played Bolo mostly. Ahh, those were the days.

    My list would be:

    Bolo
    Spectre
    SimCity series
    Civilization, Alpha Centari
    Quake series

    Castles is good.

    Civ II has to be on the list, I've spent weeks playing it; Civ III doesn't seem to be as fun.

    Alpha Centauri is pretty good. Age of Empires II. Starcraft, altho the UI drives me nuts. I liked Warcraft II better than III also, it's just more fun.

    unreal

    interesting, nobody even mention this game. That game is awesome IMHO. The game itself even today is unbeatable at least in music.
    but i"m an rpg fan...so;)

    4 legendary games

    I believe that these four games rank as the essential Macintosh games of the 90's.

    Civilization

    Marathon (network play rocked!)

    Sim City 2000

    Myst (The Original)


    Also, anyone remember Brickles? (An easter egg in an earlier OS and currently on the iPod under another name)

    Escape Velocity.

    I own 36 games, newest is Neverwinter Nights, and I very rarely play them. In fact I still haven't played about 7 or 8 of them! Ever!

    A non-gaming-teen. Go figure :rolleyes:
