Are there any games out there that you have seen work on os x lion? I have tried almost most popular games and nothing works. I know Os x Kitten, excuse me Lion dropped powerpc applications and rosetta but is there a single game other than sim city (the only game Ive gotten to work) I'd appreciate any response on this matter.

have you tried lowering the settings? I've had no problems running bejeweled3, limbo, and portal 2 (on low settings). I have a 13" macbook air.

Starcraft II, AOE3, anything available for Mac on Steam, BF2142, COD 4, the list goes on and on...

Warcraft 3 is actually an Intel app. The installer though is PPC. I had Warcraft 3 installed before updating my OS to Lion and it still works.

Any Mac game made in the last 3-4 years should work on Lion. Check the Mac App Store. There are plenty of games on there.

As mentioned before. Most Blizzard games work on Lion (Starcraft 2, WoW, Diablo 3).

EDIT: Yes, I forgot about Steam. All Valve games work on Lion. Seriously there is no lack of gaming on Lion. Really hoping developers can take advantage of the OpenGL updates in Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8).
