    In no sort of order:

    1) Jet Grind (Set) Radio

    2) Rayman 2: The Great Escape

    3) Kirby's Adventure

    And in a related story, I'm getting my DC fixed after a long time of it being non-operational, so, finally I can play JGR again! Wee! (I love the game so much I spent $40 on the OST)

    In no particular order (chronological?):

    SimCity (and following series)

    Marathon (series - arguably could include Halo)

    Command and Conquer: Generals (best of a good series)


    At least Macs have 2/3!


    Also of note: Diablo II, Civilization (series), A-Train and SimTower (both paving the way for true Tycoon games, moreso than Lemonade Stand, anyway), Myst, DrugWars, GTA (series), Gran Tourismo (still best car racing game).


    I know, I know, not enough old-school games, and a bunch of really "safe" big names! But I stand by them with pride! (Except maybe for DrugWars)

    Hopefully the G5 will help change the amount of games on the mac, since gaming is seriously lacking.

    Old School Games....
    gradius (any)
    skate or die
    micromachines (the gold cartridge)

    In fact, I'm buying another ps2 just for GT4. My old one bit the dust, and I have a cube and a modded box.

    My brother and I are getting a racing wheel, a bucket seat, and hooking up an old 5.1 system along with a dedicated 27" in our office just for GT4. I can't wait!!!!

    Hard call, but off the top of my head:

    1) Half-Life
    2) Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
    3) Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

    And three more that barely missed the cut:

    1) Deus Ex
    2) Starcraft
    3) Oni

    Unfortunately, the top three aren't yet available for the Mac, though I can't believe no one's ported Vice City yet. The MGS2 port for the PC was a complete mess, so I'm not sure I want to see it ported to the Mac unless some one was going to take the time to do it right.
