A while ago some other members began to dig in their memories for older games, you can find this here:

'Wolfenstein' was published on semi-commercial CDs with the German issues of 'MacUp' and 'MacWorld' in early 1994. They must have been in the American magazines a little bit earlier.

I just posted some scans and pix of Pathways Into Darkness the 1993 Bungie game which has to be the first native FPS for the Macintosh.

Sometimes you need several pieces of older Mac hardware to get from here to there which at times seems impossible.

I made the screen shots on a Powerbook 540c where the game is played, and then transfered them to a floppy disk. Then I copied the floppy to a PCMCIA card by using a Powerbook 3400. I thought I would need to use my Pismo to get the copy from the PCMCIA card to a USB thumb drive. Fortunately I remembered I had a PC card reader which took the shots directly into the MacBook Pro for editing and posting here.

1993 Valkyrie Helicopter Sim.

Valkyrie by Don Hill was initially introduced on floppy disk in 1993. In 1997 it was renamed Cobra Strike and was produced on a CD. The simple controls allowed one to play skillfully within a few minutes.

My first mac game I found was for OS9, I think it was called "Distortion"?  but the one I found that I really liked was "Myst", played it on my Powerbook Pismo, wow, what great graphics, I liked it so much I eventually bought the whole set from a fan who then offered me his one owner Powermac G5......

@Alex (three years late) I think the game you are talking about is some form of Scorched Earth. Also, a good spot to find old games is http://macintoshgarden.org/
