This is a tutorial on how to install Quake 3 or OpenArena on Mac OS X. Yes there is actually a way to play Quake but you'll need the CD contents of the original Quake (or play a shareware version). Personally I have only been able to get this to work using GLQuake/Quake provided by that link. Intel Mac OS X 10.6 or later Quake 1 (shareware or retail version).

Quake 2 For Mac Os X
Quake 4 enlists gamers in the role of Matthew Kane, a member of the legendary Rhino Squad, to penetrate deep into the heart of the Strogg war machine and engage in a series of heroic missions to destroy the barbaric alien race. QUAKE 4 begins only moments after the events of QUAKE II, with the Earthís fleet launching a massive offensive to the planet Stroggos.
As Matthew Kane, gamers invade the alien stronghold, fighting alone, along side other Marines, and in mechanized walkers and hover tanks as they encounter the Strogg and their disturbing amalgamations of man and machine. Built on id Software's revolutionary DOOM 3 technology, QUAKE 4 also features fast-paced multiplayer competition modeled after the speed, style and feel of QUAKE III Arena.
