RedFlag just ran a link detailing CNET's collaboration with a couple of game publishers (Bungie being one of them) to provide their games for free...

Admittedly, the majority are PC games and they're all oldies... but some of them are MacOS based and can be upgraded to OSX via a patch...

Okay, enough talk - go gets!

I had already been aware of several of those games being free and can say that there are some really good games in that mix. GTA2 is a great game, especially playing over the net with people. Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe is also a fun game. Very few things are more satisfying than setting up your troops at different entrances of a building to have them storm in at the same time, or having 2 of your soldiers escorting hostages out of a building while one goes to the attic to bomb the archives and one other is driving a car up to the entrance to drive everyone out before the bomb goes off. Sometimes the manipulation of the 4 characters at once can be tricky, but when you do it really well, and your timing is perfect, the results are <i>very</i> satisfying. Enemy Territory I still enjoy playing, my favourite map is fueldump.

Unfortunately many of the games aren't Mac compatible, but if you have a Windows machine, you should definitely try out some of those games.

Some kind of special patch factory or patch outlet store, surely...

Try a bicycle tire patch, or ask any neighbourood pirate... that could help...

You could also try Versiontracker.com?
