I want to buy a game for my macbook and im not sure what to get. I want a game that is pretty popular and i can go online and play other people even (if they are on windows preferably). I was thinking maybe a racing game or a first person shooter. Do you guys know of any games that i should check out?

yeah yeah yeah.. i know that macs are not known for games... but i wanted a mac for music and such... and now i wanna get a game


Well, you can't have both.

Your only option is to run a Windows emulator which will lower the performance of your Mac. You should've just bought a Windows machine, they do everything you need.

Quake 3 is the shiznit

(though many of the people still playing online are pretty hardcore...at least if you go for the CPMA or RA3 stuff..... there are some hardcore people still playing the old QuakeWorld)

no its not. you can run windows natively on macs now. using boot camp, theres no performance loss.

Really? Well, that's an improvement, but at the end of the day, why not just buy a PC if you're going to install a Windows OS on it?

It shows just how far Apple will go to capture the mainstream by the way they're actually allowing a rival operating system onto their systems. Microsoft are laughing all the way to the bank with that one.

because then you can run OSX, but have the freedom to use windows either on its own, or within OSX (using parallels) for those things where OSX doesnt have suitable software.

and i'm pretty sure its apple who are laughing all the way to the bank, given this has greatly increased their market share, lead to them selling huge amounts of hardware, and helps encourage people to crossover. think about it. someone thinks 'oh, i'll switch now that i can use both'. then they realise that actually, they dont need windows at all really. all of a sudden, you've got lots of new mac users.

ALL Blizzard games are dual platform, (there's not even a seperate Mac version, you just pop in the regular CD).

Also, the Original Halo still has a couple thousand players online at any given time.
