What good games are there for Mac Mini
I may be getting a Mac Mini for free. Yay!
Problem is, I have heard that Macintoshes do not have many good games.

My only gaming experience is with IBM computers and Nintendo and Playstations.

Couple of suggestions
World of Warcraft is available on the Mac. The good thing is, if you have the PC version, you already have the Mac version as well.

WoW is one of those rare dual OS game boxes out there.

Another fav is the Halo series (btw, did you know that Halo was supposed to come out for the Mac originally until MS swooped in and bought the game developers before they can release it for the Mac? They had the developers do Halo for the Xbox as the killer launch title and the rest is history. Bungie eventually got around to releasing it for the Mac after a few years :()

Command & Conquer is great as well.

And now that Windows is running on Macs, just about any Windows game out there should run on the mini...

Be forewarned though, the Mac Mini only has an integrated video driver and not a full-blown graphics card.

You may want to look into the iMacs if you want to do any serious 3d gaming.

Well... one word of caution though, if you are getting one of those new intel mac mini's (which are awesome by the way :) ) I'm not sure if all of the games run... because lots of apps seem to crash in it. Mac's aren't exactly great for gaming and as Javester mentioned their video cards aren't that good... and you might also need more memory (depending on which one you get) to play the game smoothly. Although the other day I was trying out the Atari emulator... but then I just got bored...

By the way just check out apple's site- , they've got the list.... if you're interested.

If you want to do more gaming I think you should either get xp or just get a console for playing games, it might turn out better for you.

I know EQ used to have a macintosh version, but I do not know if they still support it. I used to use a mac a long time ago, and it was not a very good machine for gaming.

What kind of games do you like to play?
