I have played Halo on the 1.25 Ghz Mac Mini (NOT MINE!!) with 512 ram and it worked just fine.

IMHO, Halo is the best FPS available that runs well on a Mini. The key is variety, as in lots of weapons, lots of maps, lots of gametypes, lots of players, etc. You can't really beat that!

I like AA (especially since it's free), but it's difficult to seyup a server on a Mac, and you're prety much limited to a bit more 'serious' type of gameplay. With Halo, you can do stuff like AA (given a big enough map, etc.), or you can very easily just goof around.

I'm not sure what you mean by that? Basically if you're Mini is running Tiger, you can install Halo, and that's all you need. If you feel a little adventurous, you can overclock the ATI card in the Mini to squeeze some higher video capabilities out of Halo, but it's not a neccessity.

Close, but the real winner is RoCW: Enemy Territory. Doesn't run too hot on my Mini, but mine's 1st gen, and doesn't have extra VRAM.

Also, Halo is a decent game. It was a spectacularly awesome console game just because console game FPSs lag PC ones in quality and stuff. Though this same reasononing may make it a "damn good game" for Macs, sadly.
