  • Recommendations for OS X games (10.2.8)?

    Free or not, I just want to play a game on my Mac. Something to calm my frizzled brain after long sessions with Logic, Rewire, Live, Garageband, midi interfaces.....

      Dual 1.25, 512 ram.

      I just bought Civilization III. Hope I didn't choose poorly.

        well if 'calm' is the right word than you should stay away from the crazy shooters... they just make your eyes dry out and get your adrenalin pumped up.



        Myst IV:
        this would be perfect.. a mix of journey, puzzles and environmental audio.

        Worms3D:
        this is a true game... simply pure fun.

        Gish (shareware):
        it takes some skill at first to control this blob of tar, but it is an original effort and neat game.

        If you want to go online and blow stuff up then look no further than BF1942:

        This game is really the only game I will play. It is a good combination of FPS/simulation/arcade. You can fly a plane, parachute out, land in tank, take a flag, hop in a sub and man the guns on an aircraft carrier. Team effort helps but you can have fun just doing whatever you want...

        If you like real-time strategy, than I'd recommend Homeworld 2.

            The best thing for me after a good session is a full on full frontal war game..

            Check out Call of Duty. It's very immersing and looks amazing...

            Command and Conquer 'Generals' is pretty good. Excellent online..!!

            The Sims is a pretty amazing game. Especially if you want to put the real world behind you for a while.

            Er...

            Civilisation is a great game if you like it. I didn't get on with it myself but I can see why some people love it.

            My favourite 1st person shooter of all time is still Deus Ex. It wont run in OSX though and they are still yet to bring Deus Ex II on to the Mac despite the fact that I played a demo of it on a G4 at a Californian games show around 2-3 years ago.

            Lots of games out there... Bring on Deus Ex II...

                Oh, why didn't you say so!?



                Ok, then BF1942 loaded with the free and awesome Desert Combat Mod.

                Right now, Mac users are patiently waiting to be able to use the latest version DC .8, but there are still servers playing DC .7

                www.desertcombat.com

                http://www.macologist.org/ see the downloads and get DC .7
