    I was wondering what you all thought was best free mac game out there? Clearly this is totally subjective so feel free to list a few in different categories of games.

    Random Fun? Scorched3d
    Good game in general? EMR3
    I'm sure Freespace 2 would be here somewhere, but never played it.

    A good commercial game that someone that bought it and doesn't like it anymore and gives it to you. :D

    If you like strategy games then you can't go wrong with...

    Freeciv is a Civilization clone that plays a lot like Civ2. BfW is a fantasy game that reminds me of Fire Emblem if you happened to have played it on the Game Boy Advance or GameCube -- turn-based tactical unit combat.

    It's a cross between Bomberman and Doom.

    And you can download it, so you can play it without internet access.​

    It's all about Grid Wars 2. If you've played Geometery Wars on the Xbox 360 then you'll know what I mean.

    I think the latest iteration of Wolfenstein has a free multiplayer version you can get at Macgamefiles.

    I'm partial to FreeCol, though I am a developer so I'm biased.

    It is a great strategy game about colonizing the new world and then fighting for independence, with a style quite similar to the Civilization games (the original was designed by the same person).

    The Mac version has a couple of interface bugs, but is still completely usable.

    It has a bit of a learning curve, especially if you never played the original Colonization (like me). But once you get the hang of it, its a great game!

    Cube 2 Saerbraten is a Quake style game that is developed for Windows, OS X, and Linux. Its single player is not too great... but the mulitplayer is pretty good. Alot like Quake 3 online play :)

    Xmoto is a fun 2d motorcycle game.

    VDrift is a decent racing sim for free.

    FlightGear is a Great flight Simulator.

    Oh my G-d, what have I done? I created a monster by starting this thread and diverted all your attention away from buying my car. But just incase you still want a piece of that M3, it's available here.
