What games do you have on your Macbook?

My Macbook is supposed to get here this week. I should have it by Friday. I'm not much of a gamer on my PC though, in fact all I ever play is Sim City 4 and I rarely play that anymore since it is so slow. There are games that I'd like to play and I was wondering what games people have on their Macbooks. I would also like to know how well they run. I don't mind if I have to get Windows.

Sim City requires a 32 MB video card with DirectX 7.0 compatible driver. I think the Macbook will work since my PC has an intergrated graphics card but I don't really understand the whole integrated graphics card thing.

So to sum it all up I'm wondering what games run on a Macbook (probably in Windows) and if the Macbook graphics card will work for Sim City 4. Thanks.

A macbook... well the GMA950 is nothing spectacular but it will do fine in SimCity 4, it will also do fine in other non-gpu intensive games like The Sims 2, etc, you might be able to get away with a recent FPS or two, but you'll have to deal with ultra low resolutions, ultra low settings and ultra low framerate.

Now if you had a Macbook Pro that would be a whole different tale, you could play every game in existence, not in the best terms but you could play them.

Thanks for the responses. Chrone I really only play Sim games and strategy games so I should be fine. Now I just need to decide if I want to fork over the money for Windows.:confused:

World Of Warcraft works fine, perfectly smoothly on lowest settings, full screen on a MacBook. (only 1gb ram+ though)
