Really 'old' games just pop 4 to my mind, in no particular order:

1) Marathon games
2) Lemmings games
3) Oxyd series
4) Barrack

Damn, I would really like to play Oxyd or Barrack OS X native... :(

Also in no particular order
1) marathon
2) Marathon 2 / infinity
3) Myth 2
4) Monkey Island 2
5) Myst

p.s i am just finishing Myst: revelation. Works fine on my hardware (1.33 ghz). one of the ages is a bit slow, but nothing that bothers you after a few hours. the reason i write this is that some stores say a G5 is required.

And i think Myst was the Master exam, reading through all those journals ;)

Lots of great games listed! I saw a few that made me think "dang I forgot about that!". Makes me want to go dig thru some of my old discs and see what I can find.

Looks like Marathon 1/2/3 get top honours so far.

Keep em coming...

Hi!
Would you happen to know if Myst Revelation will run on Tiger OS X 10.4? Requirements state an OS version of 10.2 to 10.3.
Thanks muchly!
