I know I could boot up one of my Vista machines to play Windows games, but I'm asking specifically about OS X games that I could play on the Mini without Windows.

Normally I go to my 360 for any gaming goodness these days.

The only ones I can remember are: Warcraft, Starcraft, Age of Empires, and the ever glorious Civilization.

You might wanna check out Inside Mac Gaming and see what else they may know about. If it's up, maybe also check out Macologist.org.

I recommend

Civilization any of them they are quite fun and addictive.

Starcraft ok but you need the mac os x installer update for installation and you have a heck of a time getting it on blizzards site

Diablo if you want to dive into this game i recommend 2 thing's.

1. you run this on a powerpc macintosh with classic installed

2. you purchase the battle chest edition

The reason you run this game on the powerpc is diablo 1 only runs in classic.
