Sample entries from NetGuide:

Ambrosia Café
All right, it's a commerical boost for a software company, but they do make great games, many of which are downloadable and discussable right here. From straightforward classic arcase "homages" to elaborate strategy "homages", Ambrosia always packs a punch and always with a good soundtrack. You've already got one? Check the game-specific FAQs, peruse Mac Media Monthly or the Real MacOy ezines to find out who's talking about what, then join the discussion in the Share the Mac users group. Sections focus on Internet features (TCP/PPP, FTP, etc.) and provide PowerMac ideas and downloads.

Cult of Macintosh
Mac user paradise is lost no more. Although it's all in frames, there are so many Mac items available (the super huge shareware and freeware archive includes games, fonts, and utilities) that the site, however clumsy, is well worth negotiating. If you don't find what you're looking for in their archive, the Indices section not only links to a vanety of other Mac pages, it also has a keyword search engine to help you get to the right one for your needs. Also, if you're the obsessive-type, you may appreciate the Mac O/S propaganda and the top 20 list of Mac-oriented sites.

Shareware.com
Let's face it, a computer user's favorite word, like any consumer's, is "free". With all the cash one shells out for hardware, connections, etc., it's always great to find a giveaway; there are more than 190,000 of them here.
