Last OS X to support Classic is 10.4.11, Rosetta works up until 10.6.8 but it is not installed by default.
Classic is MC68K emulation for PowerPC based Macs where you run a special version of MacOS 9 installed alongside 10.4.x that starts up automatically when you run a 68K app. It does not work on Intel Macs, so if you want to use a Mac Mini, it'd have to be a G4 Mac Mini:
last year I had a Powerbook G4 to play with for a while, all of the 68k games I tried ran smoothly in the Classic environment, no lag at all.
Then there's Rosetta, for running PPC apps on Intel Macs:
I don't have any first hand experience with Rosetta but given the way it's implemented I guess it must suck for playing games.

Oh... could it be because it's 68k code running under a PPC OS running under OS X - so 2 layers of emulation?
