Good games for a MacBook

I tested some games with the most common gaming platform in the world: Intels GMA chipset, and beeing not much of a gamer, I picked only the gems that are worth playing today. More games to spend some quality time with are available at the GameSpy’s “Game Of The Year” Sites for 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003.

(Note: The GMA is the aquivalent of a GeForce 4200, so I think it should play games with feasible settings published till 2003/2004.)

Psychonauts: Okay
Silent Hunter 3: Okay
