Feel free to post links and I'll add them if they are worthy.
Hopefully you'll find Zonic worthy - we've ported a couple of games to the Mac...  ;)

Since I can no longer directly edit the original post, working through the moderators, I'll get your link and the others added. Thanks!

Errors:

Macologist.org typo.
Dreamcatcher Games typo.
Spiderweb link leads to the Geneforge 3 page.
Wideload link leads to Macologist.
Zonic typo.
Battery Acid typo.
Strange Flavour typo.
Yexi typo.

By "typo" I mean the url tag is screwed up for various reasons.  There are probably other errors, this is just what I got with a quick read-through.

Question: what on earth is the rhyme or reason to the organization?  There are several things on "Mac Game Companies Primary List" which are not even development or porting houses, and the secondary list is rather confusing as well.  Is there any criteria, or are you arbitrarily assigning games to one list or another?  Wouldn't it be more effective to have categories like "Shareware Developers/Games", "Commercial Dev/Games", and so forth?  As it is if I were looking for a website, I would have no idea where to look.

Just a thought.  :)

I've corrected the errors you mentioned and submitted them. The list has become rather large and is a work in progress :) From a management standpoint, my original intent was to list AAA titles in the Primary List and all others in the Secondary List. It's just a list. If there are examples that don't follow this criteria, please point out and I'll be happy to update. :)

Thanks Stickboy, got those added.

Remember since I can't edit my own posts, it's more difficult to catch errors and there is lag time between when I submit an updated list and when it gets posted.

The Macologist link goes to our forums, not our main page.

The link should be:

http://www.Macologist.org


not, http://www.macologist.org/index.php
-iMac

Dismount games.  Only one is available for Mac, though.

Mac Game Database should go under Mac Game Sites, not Mac Game Companies.

I would recommend removing the retailers from the Mac Game Sites category.  They serve a totally different function than the games sites do.  If you still want to include them, I would create a separate category called Retailers.  You're missing many of these (MacPlay.com, Amazon.com, Buy.com, CompUSA.com are a few of my favorites).

If you want to include some non-English language Mac Game Sites, I know they're out there, but would have to do some searching to find them.

I've reorganized the list into one large Mac Game Company list. I've marked what I consider the AAA companies with a green *, not to signify that I consider them better than the others but to signify they have produced major Mac titles. If you see an error, feel free to speak up. Thanks!
