    I just got a 13" MBP 2.66 Ghz, what game should I get? I'm think about Rome total war, AoE III, CoD4, or borderlands. But what game do you guys think I should get. And right now I only have $60 to spend so please keep that in mind!

    You can get Rome Total War for $6 on direct2drive. Buy it there and you'll still have $54 to spend on something else.

    Second this.
    I've heard from numerous friends that this is a good game to get.

    Firstly I don't really game on PC's, however I did recently get Asphalt 6, Flight Control and PinBall HD from the Mac App Store for my uMBP.

    Get the Orange Box on Steam. HL2, HL2:EP1, HL2:EP2, Portal, and TF2, and it's only $35 (don't quote me but it's somewhere around that)

    Actually, I second this. And it is only $30, so not only do you get a bunch of great games but you also have only used half your $60 budget!

    The remaining $30 can go towards buying all the kind respondents on this forum lunch.

    +1 for Orange Box

    Also may I suggest Braid, Plants Vs. Zombies, and Bioshock.

    Ok thank you sounds like I'm probably gonna get the orange box. But anyone know if Day of Defeat: Source and CC:S are still active? Cause I really like CC:S and WWII so I want to get both of those as well.

    Counter Strike: Source is regularly the number one selling game on Steam for Mac:

    Orange Box for sure... with the other $30 I would recommend some of the fantastic indy games available on Steam, such as Braid, World of Goo, Plants vs Zombies and, depending on your tastes, maybe Torchlight and Trine. I've certainly left out many other gems. They are inexpensive and still deliver huge entertainment.

    Orange Box + Plants vs Zombies would be a great choice. I'm giving my voice for these two purchases.
