    Hey, I'm looking for a game to go out and purchase for the PowerMac G5 that I'll have for the summer, I'll be buying a Mac Mini here within the next two months so yeah. I want it to be compatible with that. The Mac Mini I will be upgrading to 1GB of RAM so yeah, if it requires RAM I've got it. - No broadband only games, since we lost BBD and have DU now.

    I would recommend Rise of Nations Gold Edition (includes expansion pack). I just bought it for my new PowerMac G5 (which is still in transit). This game will run fine on your new mini when you buy it.
    Other recommendations-
    1) Command & Conquer Generals
    2) Doom III (not mini compatible :( )
    3) Unreal Tournament 2004
    4) Sim City 4

    StarCraft. Best game ever, multiplayer works fine on dialup, will run great on any mac that's newer than about 8 years old. It's an RTS so if you don't like those then disregard this, otherwise, give it a try.

    Are you kidding me, I'm still trying to figure out how to win. I have the computer set on fast moves, (basically dumb computer), and it beats me by a million to one. How the heck could someone beat it on longer moves (smart computer)???

    Return to Castle Wolfenstein will be fun on both the dual 2..0 and the Mac mini. It looks great on my parent's 800MHZ iMac g4 w/32mb Vram, so it should look great also on the Mac Mini. MoH:Spearhead is another game (get the demo first) that will be stunning on the dual 2.0 (i have a dual 1.8) and still run well at reduced resolution and detail on the mac mini.

    I set it on longest moves to play against itself, took it 64 moves, 10+ hours. Black won.
