Starcraft, and it's even worthwhile for mac
Boot Camp is not an emulator but a bootloader and set of Windows drivers. With it, Windows runs natively on Macs, just like on any other PC hardware, with no speed penalty like emulation would cause.Sib said:
Not quite sure what you're getting at, but there are, to this day, still games that are compatible with both OSes. SPORE was a Win/Mac hybrid thingy, one product shipped for both systems. WoW's sold that way too. It's mostly an approach taken with educational stuff, but we get a bone thrown to us once in a while.Quadtrix said:I'd love to be able to play PC games on a PC running a Mac OS. Microsoft would probably go out of there way to make sure that never happens, though. They'd probably threaten any developer that wanted to make a game that compatible with both operating systems, perhaps not allowing them to make the game compatible with their OS unless it's exclusive to it.
I knwo you can get battlefield 2142 on the mac and you could play quake 4 (and quake live i would guess) on it, Ive also seen Neverwinternights 2, COD4, spore and any blizzard game you can think of (diablo 2, warcraft 3, not sure about WoW though).Thunderhorse said:O.k. First off, I'm not really looking for a mac vs. PC debate, especially in terms of gaming. I am more than aware of ALL of the PC's advantages on mac, and I hadn't even bought the thing(the mac) for gaming in the first place.
But just because this thing isn't intended to play games, doesn't mean it can't. I've already grabbed marathon(...) for it, and I'm kind of looking to branch outward. Only problem is, I don't really know where to start. Where do I get good games for the mac? Are there any free one's I should be looking to D/L?(I got Marathon for free).
I heard Spore is going to be released on Mac, so thats nice. I'm looking to play either a good RTS, Adventure game, FPS or even MMORPG, although the latter would have to REALLY impress me, and definitely not fall under any category that WoW might.
The no mac virus thing is a big myth and a dangerous one, yeah they aint targeted liked PC's are, but they are targeted. people in general dont put virus protection on a Mac, makes them easy targets. I only say this as I had a friend that got a virus on his mac and lost all of his hard drive (because he didnt back it up, why would he need to, macs never break down or get viruses rolls eyes*)Lord Krunk said:I personally love the mac. At first I didn't, but my parents bought one, and I adore it.
But it's brilliant at everything else (No VIRUSES!). And it hasn't betrayed me, unlike Microsoft. (Stupid %^$%$%$%$#%$^%R^%$E%%^&&%^*&^%$$$%^&^*%$^&% Vista)
