    I know there are a few threads about this, but each one only has like, a few games posted in each, and they are scattered through the hundreds of posts, so I decided to make 1 general thread for all the MacBook games to be listed, you can post the game that works on the MacBook, and say what settings it's on, and how much ram you are using for the game, and all that, and then I will make a list in this post...
    NOTE: Games for the MacBook, not MacBook pro!

    Games Running on Mac OS X
    Games on High
    -Halo : Using 2gb Ram _ "Runs good, but a 'little' choppy here, and there."

    -

    Games on Medium
    -World of Warcraft : Using 512mb Ram _ "Runs very well. At least for me. Outdoor areas are smooth, more than enough to play and enjoy. I notice a increase in framerate if I set my macbook batter to "Better Performace". Indoor areas runs VERY smooth, silky smooth. With 2 gigs of RAM, I suspect this will become more common."

    Games on Low
    -Quake 4 : Using 1gb Ram _ "Runs okay, playable indoors but pretty choppy outdoors."
    -Call of Duty 2 : Using 2gb Ram _ "Game detects best settings but if you up the res and detail it inevitably gets choppy and jumpy, especially in large and/or smoke filled areas. Leaving on default settings gets you a perfectly playable game and looks fine since the MacBook screen isn't massive."

    It would be a good idea to make a big post with all the games people have tried, and maybe make it a sticky.

    You can find a LOT of comments on this thread. If only some could put them all together in one single post.:rolleyes::p
