What games are available for iMac and where?

What games play on iMac and where can I find those games and who sells them?

I wanted to play Battlefield etc on iMac, but who sells the games for iMac in Australia?

I can't find Battlefield on iTunes, how come?

iTunes doesn't sell Mac games.

You should try the App Store or Steam.

There is also the chance that the game you want to play doesn't exist on Mac.

Click here for some BF games.

There is Black Ops 2 on Mac App Store too, if you're into Middle East shooters.

If you are a fan of (current) Blizzard titles, you can check out World of Warcraft, Diablo III, and Starcraft II. They are all native OS X titles. I think since Lion, support for previous Blizzard titles has been dropped (lack of Rosetta in the latest releases of OS X).

I can load iTunes, but how do I load the "App Store"?

• Finder > Applications (CMD+SHIFT+A) > App Store
or
• Spotlight (CMD+Spacebar) > write "app store" (without the "" of course) > ENTER

Also, if you're up for installing Windows, not only will you have a vastly increased array of game options, but those that you could run under OS X will run better under Windows. Games are all I use Windows for. Boot back to Mac OS otherwise.
