    BIOSHOCK.

    Reviews of that game has a minimum of 9/10.

    Dunno if it's in Mac though.

    Try those new EA games for Mac out on the Apple website! They aren't that high-priced I believe. Unless you are more inclined to having a more cheap alternative, like say, torrents (*cough*). Hehe! Happy gaming!

    Tried and tested games:
    1. WarCraft III Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne expansion pack
    2. Command and Conquer Generals Deluxe Edition (C&C Generals and C&C Generals: Zero Hour)
    3. Civilization IV and Civilization IV Warlords
    4. StarCraft

    Relatively new one:
    5. Command & Conquer 3

    Upcoming:
    6. StarCraft II

    You can get these games locally from Data Blitz stores. They're also available in PowerMac centers. However, I don't know which offers the best price. I bought my C&C game in Hong Kong. I must admit, it's cheaper there. It's up to you in the end but of course, it'll be great if we can support our local resellers. :)

    World of Warcraft if you like MMORPGs and don't mind shelling out for the subscription fees and the broadband connection :)

    I play it on my MBP and sooo happy with the way I can max my vid settings out.

    If you don't mind using bootcamp and buying from Steam (and have a good internet connection): The Orange box is a great value. Halflife 2 and team fortress runs great on my old white 2 Ghz iMac.

    Google the reviews of the Orange box, especially about Teamfortress 2. It has some very very good ratings.

    Tip: go to Data Blitz and ask the saleslady to recommend you good games for the mac :D
