    The marathon series was good back in the day. To bad Microsoft had to go and buy out Bungie when they were working on Halo. A-10 Attack series was fun to play. Also put a lot of hours in Civilization 2 as a kid. Unreal Tournament 2004 is also one of the greatest, and also all of Blizzard's games(except World of Warcraft) are great games. :apple:

    Starcraft. Nuff said

    14 years later, and still running strong.

    2nd place goes to Halo.

    Maybe 5 years down the road CoD 4 will become epic....god I hope not though, I am hoping Mac gaming will pick up over the next few years, and we wont have to play 5 year old games to get our kix lol.

    Blizzard has been nearly the Alpha and Omega of Mac gaming, as far as I'm concerned.

    I can't think of a non-Blizzard Mac game that I personally thought measured up since Myth 2 in 1998.

    Hellcats was great, and so was Descent, but I think I have to go way back to Lode Runner for my alltime favorite.

    Never really used my Macs for games but when my iPod battery died whilst on the train I whipped out my PB and played Cave Story. And carried on playing when I got home :)

    Mac, or Apple? If Mac, then Starcraft and Starflight. If Apple, then Wasteland and Autoduel. :cool:

    Midnight Mansion. I really love it.

    But I have an Xbox 360 for my more advanced gaming needs. ;-)

    No-one's mentioned Warcraft III! That's an excellent game.

    Also, Diablo III and Starcraft II will be awesome without a doubt.
