    Cave Story. It's free, AND epic.

    Starcraft. If you can't afford THAT, you fail.

    hmm....

    Emulators are legal as long as you own a hardcopy of the game... and they are free.

    Thats it from the top of my head.

    Oh yeah, www.runescape.com
    That game, you either extremely love it, or extremely hate it.

    What kind of Macbook? There's a big difference between the unibody with the 9400M, and the earlier whitebooks and blackbooks with GMA950 or X1300.

    On my unibody Macbook, I play Unreal Tournament 2004, Quake 4 and Need for Speed: Carbon. All of these run silky smooth.

    No sir that's not true. It's only legal to own a backup of a ROM if the original manufacturer says so (Amiga, Amstrad) and are running either a licensed BIOS file or one extracted from your own system.

    Quake 4 runs pretty good if you're using a 3rd gen macbook.
