    I tried to search this forum as well as google but I couldn`t find anything so here is a new topic for my question:

    Is there an up-to-date list somewhere listing all the current games released natively for Mac? I know about the Blizzard games and Guild Wars 2 but it`s really hard to get an overview. I have only recently started to consider gaming on my Mac because of the new iMac I ordered (gaming wasn`t an option with my old 2008 MacBook Pro) so I really don`t know what`s been released lately.

    As with the sites listed above, every game on MacGames.co.uk is a native Mac game, every game lists if it works on intel Macs, PPC Macs, or if it is a Universal app, and we are just in the process of updating every singe product page with easy comparison images, detailing which versions of OSX the individual game will work on.

    Additionally, Macrumors has some good guides, although they are not completely up to date, but still give a good indication:

    http://guides.macrumors.com/Universal_Binary_Games
    http://guides.macrumors.com/Intel_Mac_Games

    Essentially, if a game is listed as Universal, or intel, it should work in Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion, but of course check out the individual game's specs before purchasing.

    Finally, gameagent has quite a neat tool which looks directly at your Mac's specs and tells you if a particular game will or won't work on your Mac. Worth a look!
