I did. What is listed there that would run on an Intel based Mac such as this guy's Retina Macbook Pro which I imagine is running 10.8.x ?

Battlefield 2142 will run natively under OS X. My son still plays that game regularly. Otherwise, any of the Windows games will play on a Mac with Windows installed using Bootcamp.

that list made me sad. im a big fan of the series and have played 1942 - BF3. it's disappointing to see that after 2142 there's nothing for mac (and no, i will not install windows thank you very much)

Your loss then. As long as you're aware of the hardware's limitations, you can have a pretty satisfying Windows gaming experience on a Mac.

Hopefully bf4 will come out on the mac, I think the chances are pretty good.

I guess that's the plan, but given the state of openGL on the Mac, I'm not too optimistic about BF4 looking as good and running as well on OS X. Plus, the job position at DICE is apparently still open, so work on the OS X port may not even have started. OS X openGL engineers are pretty rare I suppose, and not all may want to move to Sweden. You would have to find the right one looking for a job.

Ye, id be very surprised if it ran as well on osx as windows. Hopefully it will run well enough tho.
