    I think that most people would agree with you mymemory, but there were a few loud voices requesting this section...

    well i'm not a traditional gamer in that i don't use the internet games or anything like that...

    but some games i enjoy are:

    civ 3.
    giants...
    myth

    the marathon games were great.

    and i'm looking forward to links 2002... it keeps getting pushed back. but to be able to play a top notch golf game on os x would be sweet. i actually bought tiger woods golf for pc and have played it a couple times on my roomie's and girlfriend's computer... hasn't been worth it... oh well.

    Oh yes...Marathon Infinity. We had about 5 computers (macs) linked in my house, and just about every weekend, we would have a tournament.

    Of course...I always came out on top.....always

    I played that one level where you can run into the transporter, and it will beam you up to the top of a building. And...there was a flamethrower in a secret door.

    It had some spanish name, but I cant think of it...:confused:

    there are some marathone aspects in halo, which i enjoy reminiscing about when i play it...

    i think marathon was always so far above and beyond the rest of the games... doom, etc... good stuff.

    Two BIG Games...

    ...that are planned for release this summer are Warcraft III and Neverwinter Nights. Both are eagerly anticipated in the PC gaming community, and even better, they'll come with Mac and PC versions on the same discs! Simultaneous release!

    Here's hoping that Apple releases a powerfully upgraded TiBook in time, so I'll have a machine to play them on (I haven't seen any minimum requirements for Mac, but suggested PC systems seem to be in the 1Ghz with at least a 32meg vid card range)

    what's neverwinter nights? what type of game...?

    sounds good though that they're coming on the same discs... seems convenient for people who have both at home... mac and pc that is.

    Neverwinter Nights is a DoD based game. Graphics that I've seen look great.

    *Double Take* Wow a new gaming area! This should be interesting!

    I don't really game with my Mac. I belive that's what consoles are for, because that's all they do, and they do it darn well.

    My favorite Mac games:
    • Tetris (pure 1988 Tetris, not cheap variants)
    • Minesweeper
    • GT2 on VGS

    Interesting forum subtitle though, wonder what will become of it? There's so few gamers on the Mac side, that PC's will be brought into most every discussion for sure.

    I hardly ever game on my Mac anymore, that's why I have my IIgs.

    This is cool! I never really considered myself a gamer (at least not on the computer), but I DO have Baldurs Gate, Alice and Red Faction. Also just broke down recently and bought Civilization III, and to be different, 4x4evo2. Didn't think I'd be all that into the latter, but it is a blast. Interesting how the game takes advantage of the G4 on my laptop and generates details I don't get on my 600Mhz iMac.

    Also have TacOps 3.0, if you like modern battlefield simulations.
