    I enjoy games that allow (more or less) free interaction with the environment. Depending on the type of game, lights can be shot out, tables splinter, windows break, street signs bend and break a la GTA. Any suggestions for games that take object interactivity up a notch? Thanks!

    Black & White is pretty interactive. But judging by the examples you gave it sounds like you define "interaction" more or less as "destruction". ;)

    Half Life 1 & 2 are pretty generous with their object moving capabilities. While most structures are not destroyable, a decent amount of the objects are.

    The two latest installments of the Elder Scrolls series both allow you to pick up pretty much anything you want although you don't destroy much of anything though. I haven't played the Elder Scroll 1 or 2 so they may be the same way. I haven't played the Elder Scrolls 4 yet since it's not out but all signs point to a similar style from Morrowind.

    Worms is a different kind of game of course but as far as I can remember, most all of the environment is destructable.

    Postal 1 & 2 is pretty much a no-brainer like GTA. I would guess that just like most people play GTA to not play the missons, the same thing happens with Postal.

    As far as Mac games go, Photoshop pretty much allows you to destroy screenshots of games to your liking.. :p

    Eternal Darkness for the Gamecube, because it destroys your mind.

    That is one of the best games for the Gamecube I think... the sanity system rocked. Even though you know it's there it still on occassion makes you think you're going crazy for real. Loved it.

    That was a pretty cool game, except that I found the progression to be SLOW. I hate games where you spend to much time in one location. I never did finish it, just because I felt the pacing was so poor. Maybe I'm just stupid, and it took me to long to figure it out?

    On any platform - Splinter Cell. Shoot out lights, or cause interference with them with EM so you don't leave a trail of broken glass. Shoot fire extinguishers to blind passing guards. You have to use shadows (and avoid mirrors) to avoid being detected (and the dynamic lighting in the game is superb).

    Metroid. It's likely that anything that's moving wants to kill you.

    Is the Grand Theft Auto Series ever going to be ported over to the Macs? I really love GTA III and Vice City.

    I wish there was a *real* Worms 2d game for the Mac.

    Worms Blast is a crappy Bust-a-move alternative, and Worms 3d is good, just a different kindof game.

    I'll second the vote for Katamari Damacy.

    Sure, it's a bit childish, but it's really quite fun!
