    Then you should have said that.

    The answer is - because games aren't "important" to Apple when they spend all their time developing the OS, iLife, and iWork. Theres lots of free games you can download here.

    Go to Versiontracker.com and download some of the freeware ones. A lot of them are good enough to have been bundled had Apple wanted.

    "It" never came with games - certain Macs at various times were packaged with games. Old iBooks came with Bugdom, the original iMacs came with Nanosaur, some Performas came with Descent... and some recent Macs came with Marble Blast Gold.

    ...and of course some Macs don't come with anything. Games were never actually part of the operating system, though (except Chess and Jigsaw Puzzle).

    Now why exactly nobody knows, but Apple has no experience developing games, and there are probably licensing hassles with bundling games from third parties.

    Which version of the Mac OS ever came with those as part of the OS? I have 6.0.7 on floppies, 7.1, 7.5, 7.6.1, 8.0, 8.1, 8.5, 8.6, 9.0.4, 9.1, and 10.2 on CD, and 10.3, and 10.4 on DVD, and have never seen anything other than Chess or Jigsaw Puzzle come as part of the operating system install...

    Actually, as I just clarified in your quoted text, the Mac OS never came with such a game. Various Macs were bundled with various games at various points in Apple's history. That is different than the operating system including games.

    No it didn't. I have used Macs since System 7 and have never seen Tony Hawks included in the OS. Refer to dpaanlka's posts above.
