I just bought a iBook G3 Clamshell for $35 + Free shipping in wonderful condition. I have a few Mac games and they are for the G4's. I know the clamshell is not for gaming but I am sure theres some games out there it can play. So please feel free to comment down below.

SPECS:
366MHz PowerPC G3
128 RAM
8MB V-RAM

P.S: I am updating it to 10.3 Panther.

Of Course!!!!! That also depends on the types of games that you like though. Some of my favorites are:

Doom (1,2,3)
Star Wars: Dark Forces
Duke Nukem
The JourneyMan Project
Wolfenstein 3D

There are also a few emulators out there that can emulate NES, SNES, DOS, and Atari games. It's fun! I played X-Wing and TIE fighter a couple of months ago in addition to The Oregon Trail.

But once you update to 10.3, you'll have to play the games that I just listed in Classic mode because they are OS 9 games.

Thanks for the Game advice! I have never played Doom 1 or 2 so I am going to have to give those a try and the Duke Nukem. As well as the Star Wars: Dark forces. Thanks again for the recommendations! I will make sure to give them a try! :)

Keep it on OS9, head over to Macintoshgarden, and take your pick.

I load up images of games on my Clamshell and it does great with OS 9 games(it's much faster to read an image off the hard drive than reading a disk, plus you don't have to carry a stack of disks with you).

I installed Tiger on mine, but have only booted it once.

Btw, I have 512mb in mine plus whatever is soldered to the board(64mb?).

It makes no sense to me, but for a lot of purposes I find my Clamshell faster than my 500mhz Pismo with 1gb of RAM.

Just as long as you don't die of dysentery before you get there.
"Ari was bitten rattlesnake."

Given the choice in life, I always choose to caulk my wagon and float it*. This is how I live my life today.

From UrbanDictionary
To take your time and be cautious when crossing rivers, but also not so cautious that you will only cross a river if there is a ferry present.

Originally a mindset used in the classic computer game The Oregon Trail, but can also be a way of life.

Don't be foolhardy and just try to ford the river. Take your time, be cautious, caulk the wagon and float it.

This may be off topic but does anyone know where to find the Diablo 2 and Diablo 2 LoD expansion pack Mac installers? Blizzard pulled the Mac downloads.
They have it in their ftp, I just downloaded it the other day. I can link it if you still need it.
