    Frankly, your best bet is to use boot camp to boot into windows and play elder scrolls.

    If you want to stick to the Mac, then check this out.

    I haven't played any of these, but I like the topic.

    Anything from Spiderweb Games or Basilisk Games.

    +1 for Elder Scrolls.

    Elder Scrolls Oblivion is a GREAT game with TONS of gameplay. It look me several months to beat the game and most of its quests, and then I bought the expansion, which adds a whole new world with tons of more quests. I highly recommend it.

    Fallout 3 is absolutely fantastic (and runs great on a 2.5 penryn MBP under WinXP).

    I like the post nuclear war theme much more than the Oblivion content.
    The whole game looks more polished too with its fantastic mood of a 1950ish American atomic war mood.

    Best game for me so far on the MBP.

    Depends on your machine specs.

    Older machine? Then Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2 and Icewind Dale are decent.

    Really old machine? Then many of the Spiderweb games as someone mentioned are a good bet.

    Newer Machine? Neverwinter Nights 1 & 2 are some choices and also Fable.

    Don't get Dungeon Siege I died of total boredom with that one.

    If you got an old machine one of the best is Fallout 1. I love that game and as others have pointed out the new Fallout 3 ain't too bad either.:D

    Retro RPGs

    Wizardry 8 - if you can find it. This is a blast with tons of replay ability. Works great on almost any machine, and even supports wide screen video formats.

    Planescape Torment - one the the best RPGs, but it is old. I have a hard time getting it to play on XP, much less trying it on Mac.

    Baldurs Gate Series - lots of oldschool fun.

    Wizardry 7 - really old with crappy graphics, but fantastic game play. Runs on Dosbox with no issues.

    ES: Morrowind - decent RPG, first person style. I like this better than Oblivion

    Gothic 1, 2, 3: German so it has some strange Euro-feel to it.

    Fate - mindless diablo style clicking, but lots of fun. Has a mac version now.

    Fallout Series - all good

    Just FYI for all those Fable The Lost Chapters players on the Mac we released a patch for Fable TLC last week that fixes a few issues that occurred with the new nvidia powered iMacs and MacBooks. It also fixed a few other stability issues and introduced the automated update system. If you do decide to play Fable I recommend the 1.0.1 update for everyone.

    You can find the patch at http://support.feralinteractive.com

    Cheers,

    Edwin

    ... if you are going to suggest Windows for RPG's, why not GOOD ones?

    As for the Mac, I would sadly avoid the Mac port of Neverwinter Nights 2, as it performs like crap and will never see the expansions (especially the sublime Mask of the Betrayer, with the best writing - along with The Witcher - of almost any RPG since Planescape: Torment_.

    Yeah, I agreed on several points.

    Neverwinter Nights 2 - Unplayably unstable port. I will probably not buy another Aspyr game sight unseen ever again.

    Planescape Torment - One of the best written western RPGs of all time. Period.

    Witcher - Bought this a while ago, still sitting sealed, in box.

    Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. There's a community Cider port of this. I tried it and it was so good, I went and bought the retail copy, though I'll never play it on a PC. Got about 20-30 hours into it and lost interest. To me, half the point of leveling up is to be at a higher level than the enemies.
