For the Classic/B&W Mac era, Creepy Castle is not a great game but it has a great intro:
Shufflepuck Cafe is also still fun for a bit:
Spacestation Pheta is a neat spin on Lode Runner:
There's also some arcade ports that made their way to B&W Macs, which generally required all new art. There are perfectly good ports of Arkanoid and Gauntlet that that are higher resolution (512x384) than the actual cabinets at the time.
OS 9 era gaming is also a great option for people dipping into real hardware for the first time. A decent G3 or G4 laptop usually have pretty good LCD screens and have standard VGA out, and there are ports of most of the big mid-90s Windows games that you'll want to go back to. The best part is you don't have to deal with lovely Windows laptops, and all the other issues of Win95 era computing.
OS9 also has a great Wolf 3D port, a weird Doom port, the Civ games, AoE, the Caesar series, Lode Runner: The Legend Returns, Prince of Persia, and even some early 3D games. Sim Tower/Yoot Tower has a great Mac port. I was able to get Diablo 1 on Battle.net still over Ethernet.

There's a really good "help me identify this game" thread somewhere that has a pretty good success rate. I would also try in there, but where it is exactly escapes me.
