Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Good Mac games to play on my MacBook

So I find myself in Italy, while my PSP, (my usual source of travel entertainment) languishes in my cupboard in the USA taunting me with its absence. So I have two choices, actually do work, (which will be very dull) or find some good games I can download and play on my MacBook. It's a clear choice!

Here are my system specs...

Model Name: MacBook
Model Identifier: MacBook4,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 3 MB
Memory: 2 GB
Bus Speed: 800 MHz

So, does anyone have any suggestions of some good games I can buy online and play? Ideally I'm looking for something like Civ 4 or GalCiv, but I'd also be ammenable to a game like Puzzle Quest, or even something in the Diablo 2 vein. Honestly anything which you can sit and play for a good while, as during shifts here I have a lot of downtime. Anyone out there got any suggestions for games which will be fun and run well? Whether pay or free to play, the key aspect is that I must be able to download it somewhere.

Heck, even a good suggestion of a place to buy mac games to download online would help. So save me from my boredom penny arcade forums, else I shall be forced to do the job for which I am paid.

    Seems like any of the Blizzard games would be no brainers. They're acquirable off their website.

    Assuming you haven't already played WC3 to death or whatever. :)

    Oooh, warcraft 3, I hadn't thought of this! It came out ages ago, it probably won't need a fancy video card :)

    Peggle and Plants vs. Zombies both have Mac versions. Rather, all PopCap games do, and I believe they all have free trials, so you can see what you're getting into before you drop your $20.

    As I recall, it runs fine on my sister's MacBook, which only has integrated graphics.
