I'm looking for something like http://gamerankings.com/ where I can find comprehensive information about current (and past) games, but for Mac OS X. Not necessarily just a site linking to other reviews, but it shouldn't be a time sink like normal gaming sites, either.
Steam has started supporting and distributing Mac games a couple of months ago. You can use the Advanced Search to filter by OS. At the time I am writing there a
138 games and 18 DLC for Mac listed there.
On 19 June 2010, Appstorm.net wrote an article about 50 Games for Mac.
Wikipedia has a long list as well.
Pay attention that not all games run on all Mac models. Check the requirements before buying them.
Have you taken a look at Steam? There are quite a few games for OS X and they seem to be adding more and more. They have a nice community forum.
GiantBomb's games list, filtered for the Mac platform might be a good place to start. Since it's a wiki, everything stays pretty nicely updated even if it's an old game that's been ported through Steam or some other intermediate platform.
This question was quite a while back but there's also the Mac App Store now, which has a game category of it's own. To be fair, there are lots more mini-games (think iPhone game turned desktop) than full-size games, but a couple high-profile games like Call of Duty 4 made it in for the launch and surely there will be more soon.
I'm not sure if there is one "end all" site for all known OS X games, but an additional source to consider is Steam Mac section. There isn't a huge selection yet, and it's mostly Valve's own games, but the list is growing each week.
One nice thing about Steam is that if you buy a game, you can play it on all supported platforms without buying an additional copy.
If you are looking for a place to buy older PC games that may or may not run on the Mac I would checkout gog.com. They seem to some how get publishers to port most of their games to OSX
Reasons why I love gog.com:
- You buy it. You own it. 100% DRM-free.
- You get awesome content (soundtracks, wallpapers, manuals, videos, etc)
- Extra compatibility (Window XP or later, Max OSX 10.6.8 or later)
Now if they could get ATARI to port Roller Coaster tycoon already.
