Regarding Quake III, I did find that I was sometimes at a disadvantage playing against PCs because few of the mods were for Mac users. For example, there's a grappling hook mod which I could never get to work on the Mac. Meanwhile all the PC users were climbing the walls like Spiderman.

Other games, like Starcraft, are totally compatible and not subject to such a crazy number of mods that Mac users are left in the dust.

you can play pc users starcraft through b.net or modem - but on a lan pc's use ipx and macs use tcp/ip (a better standard IMHO) so no starcraft mixed lan
q3 however plays just fine tcp/ip and the wolfensteinmptest runs mac/pc, not sure why the final doesnt ...
