    GOG.com offers high quality games (new and old) for PC and now MAC! They offer DRM-Free digital downloads with tons of goodies (soundtracks, manuals, HD wallpapers) and today the just announced Mac Support.

    Their game selection is awesome and the prices are right. check them out

    Seems like another great option for Mac-native games...thanks for the tip!

    p.s.: And they have Syndicate, one of the BEST Mac games of all time!!! Good memories!!!

    Although this is awesome, it should be noted that most of the Mac games on GOG.com are the Windows versions running on a DOSbox. They are not the native Mac versions or even native Mac ports.

    Still, it's another huge boost for gaming on a Mac! :D

    My point being: they run natively on the Mac, right? No need for virtualization/boot camp? If so, this is fine, as long as I don't have to care about editing wrappers or the like.

    Oh, sorry! I misinterpreted what you said.
    But yeah, not having to rely on Bootcamp, Parallels, etc is always great! I'm already playing Beneath a Steel Sky! :D

    They have Relentless! That was my favourite game back in the DOS days! :D

    ... and the sequel, Twinsen's Odyssey, which I wanted but couldn't find. I know what I'll be playing :p

    MacSyndicate and SimCity 2000 were true classics back in the day - awesomely addictive games on my Quadra 605! :D
