I would like to play games. :-)

Well, I came close. I have Civ III somewhere, which is a quality game. Then I tried installing Escape from Monkey Island on Panther.

Didn't work so well, unfortunately... it worked, but only in Classic mode (by design), and the movies wouldn't show the video (just the audio). I never got a chance to boot into Classic Mode as I have a 17" PB that is too recent for that. So that was my first experience with an Aspyr game... I traded it back in for an iPod, so I guess that worked out. :-)

They changed something in Classic mode in Panther that made a bunch of games unplayable. For example, Ferazel's Wand worked fine in Classic mode under Jaguar, but it became horribly choppy in Panther. You just have to persuade the developers to port the game to OS X. I think the problem is that Panther buffers the graphics in Classic so it doesn't smear like Jaguar did, but full-screen games update too often so the buffering slows them down too much.
