    freespace might have been cool but download time was 8 hours and it looked complicated. sketch fighter was cool but its not really free

    Seriously, Cave Story is awesome. Who cares if a Japanese guy wrote it? You know that wildly popular game, Super Mario Brothers? I have news for you... a Japanese guy wrote that too! Same goes with a lot of games out there.

    Gridwars is seriously the most addictive and fun, free game I have played on the mac (it's cross platform, too)

    It was Quake-level game tech but released just before Doom 2 came out, if I recall. You could look up and down, grenade jump, use dual-fire weapons, all sorts of very funky stuff that was years ahead of other FPSs. By the standards of the time the controls were massively complex (meaning you needed more than the seven bindings that were necessary to play Doom like a pro). Two triggers :eek:

    Haven't played it in a decade - might need to give it a whirl when I'm done with STALKER.;)

    That's the only thing mac hasn't built up on yet as far as their creativity goes. many gamers only have a PC because of the lack of mac games.

    Still gotta love mac.

    From the *ahem* manual:

    Move left and right - Left-arrow and right-arrow
    Look up - Up-arrow
    Search (or look down in midair) - Down-arrow
    Jump - Z
    Fire weapon - X
    Change weapon - A (back) and S (forward)
    Item Screen - Q
    Display map (requires item) - W

    Hide & Seek is always fun. I have a 100% unbeaten record against my iMac, but my Mighty Mouse is a cunning bastard!
