Heres the background story, I'm living at a college and basically lots of people have PC's and quite a few have Macs. We all want to play games against each other over the college's permanent LAN network because its easy as hell and is awesome fun.

The problem is that we've only been able to track down a few games we can actually play, which so far has been Starcraft, Warcraft 3 and Warsow.

Any good suggestions guys? cod4 is coming to mac in around april ive been told, but we may need something to tide us over until then...

(IF we get sick of Starcraft... which could be never, but i'd really like another FPS option)

Cheers

EDIT: seeing as we've got a few good suggestions here I think i might up the ante, start naming some good FREE games. yes thats right, remember its poor uni students over here

Install windows, then you don't need to worry about finding games that are dual-compatible.

yeah well we dont want to exclude too many people and while i said most people have PC's thats more a representation of the entire college rather than those who are interested in some gaming. the latter is more of a 50/50 kind of thing.

I'd also like to point out we're trying to find a copy of bootcamp as well to pretty much allow us to play anything. thanks for the suggestions so far though

awesome, thats exactly what I was after. Now i just need to track down a copy of call of duty 2

Boot camp for your mac friends?

Anyways, whenever I play with my Mac friends, we just load up an awesome Wc3 map.
#15
back to call of duty 2, is that like starcraft how you buy the game and you get the windows and mac versions or will we need to get a PC version and a Mac version separately? because that would suck.

^yeah SC2 is going to be insane

good call, id completely forgotten about those. Dota almost falls into the same boat as Diablo 2 though... very dangerous games.

Starcrack is dangerous enough

Yeah, Dota is pretty addicting, but eventually you will get tired of it.

Also, if you want to play on a lan network with people who are not in you area I suggest you get Hamachi, a programme that puts up and artificial lan network for playing.

Red alert 2 is also awesome over LAN

Yeah i've used Hamachi in the past but our college connects to the internet through a proxy so their may be issues there and we've got enough people at the college interested to get by without getting in more people from outside sorta thing.

Diablo 2 and Unreal Tournament are definites...maybe Castle Wolfenstein? I'm sure it's dirt cheap, by now.

Age of Empires 2 would be killer. Huge thumbs up to that game. Online mode rapes face.

Nothing like playing Starcraft in college. I'm a freshman this year too and I do that all the time.

Tell all of your Mac using friends to try and get parallels. It lets you run XP on a Mac as a virtual machine. I'm still working out some bugs with it, but its pretty bomb all the same. And for the record I did download it illegally and had to look up cracked registration codes online.

parallels? i'll have to look it up. they were all looking at getting bootcamp but i guess this would be easier to implement?
