    I apologize first because I know this has been posted before but I just wanted more opinions.

    I recently bought a regular macbook, not pro, and have been toying around with it for a while now. I've been thinking about getting a game for it but i don't plan on doing bootcamp or anything. The macbook is a 2.16Ghz with 2GB 10 OS X. What games are good and fun to play on the mac without downloading anything and just installing the game straight out of the box. I'm into every type of game besides WoW (i really dont wanna lose my life because i know i'll get hooked) and strategy war games (age of empires, rise of nations, etc). i love fps's but i was thinking it would be a bit hard considering there is no right click (this is my first time getting a mac so im not used to the no right click yet), but i am considering buying a controller (maybe). Any suggestions?

    EA sports just signed a new deal with Apple to release all major games for OSX at the same time as every other platform.

    Any of Blizzard's games are always a good choice. Yes, WoW does have it's addictive properties, but most games are addictive to some extenet.

    You could run every one of blizzard's older games on high graphics settings without much worry.

    I will say from my experience with macbook's and 3d gaming though, don't even consider it. I attempted to load UT2004 on my dad's just to test it out, and it performed TERRIBLY even on all settings low.
