    I gave up playing games when I switched to mac in 2005. I have a mac pro and just purchased the radeon 4870 from the online store. I got it to keep my Mac Pro Classic kind of "up to speed" and wanting to get more horsepower than what I got with the lowly nvidia 7300GT. So, now I figure I can actually run games on my computer. The thing is, I don't know what any good games are. What do you guys play?

    I'm not a big gamer, but I do binge on the following games:

    Call of Duty 4
    GTR2 (needs a steering wheel)
    Company of Heroes
    Civilization III and/or IV

    None of these games are "current" but I def enjoy them.

    I like to play a few classics
    Diablo II
    Starcraft

    I can't wait for Diablo III and Starcraft II

    I'm looking for more games to play, but since FPS doesn't really float my boat I haven't really seen anything that makes me want to bite

    Lately just WoW, Sims 3, Red Alert 3. Although the latter of these two I prefer to play in Boot Camp since they just run so much better there. I can also play the extension pack for RA3 in Windows unlike OS X.

    Games I have installed are:
    Half-Life 2 (and ep. 1 & 2)
    Crysis
    Crysis Warhead
    Left 4 Dead
    F.E.A.R 2 (horrible game)

    Well, let's go through the list! All on Windows, unfortunately, as I have a G5... Maybe its a good thing :)

    Half-Life (everything, including Lost Cost for benchmarking purposes!)
    Homeworld (mmm... classic)
    Civilisations 4 & Expansions
    COD4&5
    Mirror's Edge (<-best proof-of-concept EVER, IMO)
    STALKER; Clear Skies
    Mass Effect
    Fallout 3 :D

    I have more installed, but these are the ones I think come out of that horrible needs-defragging mess to really shine!

    Almost every game made by Valve (the Half-Life saga, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead...). But last week Cogs got me hooked - a really nice and addictive game. Try the demo first if puzzle games ain't your thing.
