Default on-line gaming or LAN gaming with 10v - 08-15-2010, 09:06 PM

I have a desktop running 10.6.3 and my mini 10v running 10.6.4.

I wanted to play a LAN game when my friend came over. I had installed Need For Speed, but the graphics on the 10v were too choppy.

I would like to know your opinions on which LAN or on-line games are good for the mini 10v.

Very old games. I like the GMA950 graphics core, but it's not made for games.

Also, I expect Windows will perform better than Linux or OSX for gaming (it's where the bulk of the Intel graphics driver effort gets spent).

Mini 9 | Intel 5100 Wifi | Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook
Mini 1012 | SSD | Intel 6200 Wifi | Ubuntu 11.10 64bit

I play Black & White on my 10v (with Windows 7, but I believe there's a Mac version as well). Very fun game, I'd suggest looking it up.
