I'm new to Mac, as many of you know, and I'm looking for a copy of Deus Ex. I've found it on Ebay and Amazon, but the Mac versions are still quite a bit more expensive than the PC versions. I understand why this is (kinda), but does anyone have a suggestion as to where I might find it for less? We're talking $8 PC version, $30-40 Mac. Yes, I know I'm cheap, and no, I don't care.

Yes there are, and I spend way too much time with them. I'm not the greatest gamer, mind you, as I prefer the tried and true to the latest and greatest. So I waste a lot on time with The Sims, Civ III, some times Alpha Centauri, Freeverse's games, Solitaire Till Dawn, and every once in a while, I boot up my oldest Mac to play Mac Manager - the company management simulation created at Harvard (if my memory serve). Oh, and a lot of shareware, many paid for.

Hmm, and to think of it, The Sims 2 is coming to the Mac in a month... More time wasted in sight!

I know that there are mac games around.. I was just trying to tease you.. I have a Windows desktop for my gaming needs, so I dont need to wait until MAc versions become available (If at all they are released for the mac)....
LOL...

Hmm ... I guess I didn't bother to look at the new price 'cuz I figured it'd be more than the used price ...

I knew you know. Someone stupid enough to think there are no games for the Mac wouldn't stay around here... I just felt like teasing back!
