Will never happen? Will never be happy? Well, at any rate, have you given Urban Terror a look? It's a free semirealistic-ish FPS with a decent player-base and CS-ish vibes, though it's not exactly the same - it doesn't try to be. And since it's based on the Quake 3 engine, it runs very well on even underpowered and older Macs.

I can't wait. Funny how it's going to be cheaper than source is now.

I don't think it will be. Traditionally they don't allow that because the aiming with a keyboard and mouse is a much different experience and might allow an unfair advantage for PC users.
I've already played the game using bootcamp. The whole point of games that are ported to OS X is that you don't have to use bootcamp.

Glad it is coming to Steam. More games need to come multiplatform on Steam so Mac users can benefit from reduced game prices. Sadly, it is not going to happen as because of existence of companies like Aspyr and Feral, native developers will not have to port into Mac themselves, and Aspyr and Feral will charge ripoff price given games they release are very outdated.

Most FPS console games have auto-aim, so it's "easier" for gamepads.

I have never been able to aim well on a console...

Yes... but you'll still get owned by the mouse/keyboard. Doubt you could maintain a positive score on a server vs people with mice/keyboards.

I used to play Shadow run, a game where people on PC's and Xbox's could play with each other, the PC players never seemed to have the upper hand. They did just as well as the 360 players.

yeah I've seen my brother in law, who is in high school, play the usual black ops/MW/BF3 on his xbox and his reflexes are really no worse than when I was playing CS all day in college (probably better since he started earlier hah). I think the truth is that most of us KB/mouse gamers are old school and don't like or physically just can't adapt to consoles which is why we think it's inherently worse.
