    So, I just got my new baby…and I was very saddened to find out that my MYST collection will not play on my Mac (without a lot of backdoor magic)…and that Cyan has no plans to rerelease the MYST series to be Intel Mac compatible. SO…my question is…what games ARE compatible. Are there any gamers out there that can help me? I’ve got a 1GB video card and I want to put it to good use! :)

    Thanks!

    That's a pretty general question, so the general answer is "any game that will run on an Intel processor." I don't know of a Myst equivalent, but I was never a big Myst fan.

    Any Windows XP SP3 and up compatible game, as it can run via Boot Camp.
    Then there is COD4 MW, then there a lot of Steam games and so on.
    Why don't you list what kind of games you like, except Myst and such, and we could provide recommendations, as listing all Intel Mac compatible games could be quite hard work.
    Have you taken a look at the Games sub forum yet?

    MRoogle might also be of help.

    No, I hadn’t looked there. Thanks, I’ll check it out!

    Sorry for the vagueness, I’m not much of a gamer…but when I do, I like games with good storylines and that involve thinking, rather than button mashing. Hence, MYST. :)
