    I was wondering what Mac games people are playing. I have been playing Warcraft III and Heretic 2. Also, what games are you waiting for to come out for Mac? For me, it has to be NWN, Jedi Knight 2 and UT 2003.

    The last game I bought was Icewind Dale. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven't played a game since I beat it about a month ago.

    These days, I am seriously missing my classic mac games like Wizardry: Bane of the Cosmic Forge. Specifically that game, actually. Wow, I miss generating characters in that game.

    I am actually quite excited about upcoming games. I am definitely down with Jedi Knight 2, Master of Orion 3, and Heroes of Might and Magic 4. Wow, I might fail out of grad school if I purchase all 3 of these games... doh!

    Whilst I'm loathed to put it into the category of games, I love to fly and modify my x-Plane.

    But I also have a copy of Warcraft 3 that I never really got into and Civ 3 that I have got sick of after finding out you can only play to 2050AD.

    One of my OS 9 favourites was Age of Empires: is there a OS X version???

    The games i've been getting into recently are Warcraft III and Civ III. I also have Quake III and UT, but they're not much fun unless you have broadband for online-gaming :(

    I'm not really looking out for any new games at the moment. For gaming i'm kind of stuck on a rev a tibook, and the graphics card isn't exactly what you might call 'powerful'.... Still, keeps me going through my degree.

    None!!!! I used to play starcraft a LOT, but I switched to WCIII and my comp was too slow, so I stopped playing games in general. Just got a new computer, should be playing soon.

    Myst III - ya i beat it long ago, but its simply gorgeous!

    Return to Castle Wolfenstein - amazing game! Multiplayer is fun as anything and the solo levels are tons of fun.

    Solidier of Fortune II - the game SUCKS - do NOT buy it!!!!

    I'm not such a big game player as I used to be. I usually play the simple strategy games, such as the one from Sigma Chess\ and UltimateOthello1667. Recently, though, I did play a pinball game for OS 9, "Roll 'Em Up". For proper playing, though, I have to boot into OS 9.

    I look forward to playing 4x4 Evolution. Other than that, I play and watch the commercial for it.

    i play a lot of old apple II games

    i could DL an emulator, but someone gave me a IIgs w/everything :)

    IMO, the quality and creativity of old games far outweighs the bling-bling graphics and crappy storylines of current games

    tetris is my all-time favorite game
