    Bootcamp, you can play any game with windows then. ;)

    Give it a try. Otherwise you're pretty much stuck with a few games, but then again, I don't think Apple had playing games in mind when they were designing macs, but you can play some games which is good. I prefer Rome: Total War. :)

    Get Steam. There are some great games on there and often specials too. Some of my favs are:
    - Half Life 2 (and all the episodes). There is some hilarious times to be had on both Team Fortress and Half Life 2 Deathmatch. Don't forget about Portal too! Yes I know these aren't really new titles, but I still recon HL2 is one of the best FPS games ever made.
    - Left For Dead
    - Portal 2 comes out later this month

    If you want hecticly fast paced FPS on the mac, a great title is QuakeLive. You only need to install a small plugin into a supported browser (most are supported), create an account and away you go!

    This should keep you entertained for a while.

    Hope this helps,

    Xcreet

    The Valve stuff is great.

    Borderlands is also lots of fun online.

    Splinter Cell Conviction allegedly has multiplayer, but I have been unable to connect.

    Yea, like this guy said use Bootcamp. Apple hasn't done much with gaming on the Mac until very recently (the last two years really), so things like graphics drivers, OpenGL, and graphics hardware have some catching up to do (but at least they're putting some effort into it now)

    Call of Duty 2 (mp still not dead yet)
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein (mp pretty dead :(:()
    Quake Live

    To be honest Steam for mac is a joke. I got a early intel imac@dual 2,16GHz, so it's a pretty old one. Nevertheless it should be running CS:S without problems, but i have huge lags even on low settings - same with Portal 1. Playing with Bootcamp is smooth. If your comp is a more powerful one you may like to try steam for mac.

    Get StarCraft 2!

    Right now I am rocking Left for Dead 2 and Bioshock on my 2007 iMac. It was hardly the high-end for graphics back when I bought it but the games run fine on it. Don't listen to everyone saying that you need Windows on Boot Camp; buy the Mac versions to help the Mac games industry thrive now that Steam and the App Store exist on our platform.

    Better idea:

    Buy games for Mac that you can

    Buy CrossOver Games for the ones you can't.

    Serves me well enough. :apple:

    Ya know I've never gotten Wineskin to get my games working properly.

    I guess you get what you pay for though.

    Folks, trolls are usually to lazy to make a real user name, so when you see a name with number in it, don't take the bait.

    This thread is from a one post newbie who never came back as that character.

    Valve makes good games for the Mac. You'll have to download Steam and pay a bit of money, but they're worth it. Look for:
    - Counter-Strike: Source ($20 USD)
    - Team Fortress 2 ($10 USD)
    - Left 4 Dead 2 ($20 USD)
    - Day of Defeat: Source ($10 USD)
    - Half-Life 2: Deathmatch ($5 USD)

    Some free FPS games I like:
    - Urban Terror
    - Sauerbraten
    - Quake Live (in browser)
    - Halo: Combat Evolved (demo is free, you'll have to pay for full)

    Call of Duty series (1, 2, 4) is good too. They are each available in the Mac App Store, but you can get them on Amazon for a lot cheaper.

    I'll also take this opportunity to mention Bitfighter, it's not first person but it is a shooter and a lot of fun. Up to 128 players, built-in level editor, 100% free.

    Every game I listed has online multiplayer capabilities.

    Definitely go for Steam for Mac, some say it's a joke but it's been getting better and better.

    It's a goldmine, also I love their policy of selling native OS X games only. This'll also encourage developers.

    yep, its definitely for the more advanced level... I plan to try to make more user friendly methods, but there just so much I can do by myself. If I had a team dedicated to making wrappers for specific games that were well done and supported, it would be great, as people could just click the game they wanted to play and have it done for them instead of having to figure it all out themselves. Portingteam.com works in the way somewhat, since people who have a lot of experience putting together wrappers make and share wrappers that are ready to go, but its a pretty loose community, and not really super focused on anything.

    do yourself a favour, set up bootcamp and install windows 7. You can then play anything and generally at better speed. If playing games on OS X they are often run in Cider which emulates a windows environment on the mac (and slows the game down in the process when compared to games run natively in Windows).

    Buying a licence for Windows makes it one heck of an expensive game!
