    I work as a coat check on weekends and need something to pass the time(there is WiFi in the closet) so i want to buy a game for my aluminum macbook. Its the 2.4ghz with no upgrades. Im leaning towards Age of Empires III because im a big fan of strategy games like Red Alert (used to have it on OLD PC). Before i bought it i just wanted to get some other ideas or if anyone had it on a similar system and it failed badly id get something else. I hate WoW so if anyone suggests it, i hate you.

    The OP said NO to WoW, thanks for reading.

    Hey if you like Real Time Strategy, try Warcraft 3. It is a little dated, but is still extremely fun and doesn't require a huge time commitment like WoW.

    Agree! Get warcraft 3. Perfect balanced strategy games with still a huge community. U can play 1on1, 2on2, 3on3, 4on4 and free for all plus lots of fungames which can get you addicted ;)

    If you don't mind CrossOver Games or VMWare Fusion then Dawn of War and its' expansions is great.
    Warcraft 3 is also good fun.

    I was joking, thanks for having the sense of humor of a dry biscuit.

    Try Neverwinter Nights. Either the first one, or the second. I believe the second can be played on the new Macbooks - but you need to look into it.

    Clearly you were joking.

    That guy needs to mellow out ... maybe find a hobby ... I KNOW, he should play some WoW!
