    I loved playing old Mac games as a kid. The cheesyness of some of these games bordered on art. I would LOVE to play some of those games. Games like: Sierra Championship Boxing, Life and Death, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade....just to name a few.

    Anyone know a good download emulator for a PC?

    Thnks

    I'm sure you can find one on google, but they're really hard to use and very unreliable. Also, they can't emulate more than Mac OS 8, so it's probably better to just get an old mac.

    Buy? I was poking around the "free" area on craigslist today and I saw someone giving away a 7100 (66MHz) Mac for free. I'd lurk craigslist and jump on a free one if that's enough horsepower for your old games.

    Like others have said, pick up an old PowerPC Mac for peanuts (they're everywhere) and scour ebay and discount software/book stores for old games. They're not too hard to find if you know where to look.
