Howdy!

I would like to know which are the best apps & games on OS X Jaguar, Panther, Tiger, and Leopard?

Receiving some PowerPC G4 machines and I would like to check them in detail.

If someone has a list of apps and games I will be very happy to check it.

'Best' is a subjective word. What I think is best, you may not agree with.

For instance, some think that Adobe InDesign is the best graphic design/layout app out there. Others would argue that QuarkXPress is the best.

We can give you lists of software that will run on your G4, but only YOU can decide what's 'best'.

Leopard:

- QuarkXPress 8
- Adobe CS4
- Office 2008 (see, I prefer 2008 to 2004. 2004 is not 'best' to me)
- Acrobat 9 Pro
- Suitcase Fusion 3

I know that "best" is subjective, is just what is best for others, for me is nothing best at this moment because I just learn and test those OS's on G4, I am a mac user from Mavericks.
