    I am looking for a good game to practice from time to time because I feel that my life started to be too boring and need something new to do occasionally, I am asking here because most of the games range from 20 to 50 USD, so i will not pay for a try.

    Call of duty: watched the video, it is just someone is carrying a gun and killing people on his way just like Medal of Honor.

    Command and conquer generals deluxe edition: this game i like too much but i played a lot about ten years ago on windows, they released the same edition on mac.

    Football, strategy, racing games suggestions will be appreciated.

    I need a modern strategy game which contains planes, jets, helicopter and nuclear as I noticed that most of the strategy games are ancient, horses and swords...etc.

    what about civ 5, its turn based, which i prefer, but might float your boat. Also Wargame Red dragon, which i played for 5 minutes and gave up, is sort of command and conquer ish.

    First things first, I recommend the Steam store to the Mac Appstore as you have much more choices at much better prices, plus there are frequent sales. Be aware that not all games work on Mac so better check for that Apple icon in the store page.

    Another vote for Civ V. Yes, it started with swords and horses but in time you'll be nuked by Gandhi and capturing Berlin with mechs. Another game that I recommend for strategy is Xcom: Enemy Unknown & Enemy Within. Which though don't have nukes, you have plasma and laser weapons. Oh, and jetpacks! Both games can be had for very low prices on Steam due to being out a few years now but have become strategy classics. You can easily sink in hundreds of hours in both. Though the prices don't look that good at the moment, if you can wait until Steam summer sale that'll be golden where most games drop 75% or more!

    Unfortunately the genre that you have described is probably RTS which has been in a great slump lately. There are not that many games. But at least take a look here? http://store.steampowered.com/tag/en/RTS/#os[]=mac&p=1&tab=NewReleases

    As for football; Football Manager 2015? I'm not sure which side of the pond you're on lol. If you like city builders, Cities Skylines just came out and is excellent. I haven't played racing in a long time so no recommendations.

    if you like scifi strategy, try starcraft 2 from battle.net, but be warned it requires serious skills.

    besides starcraft 2 the only other one i would recommend is civ 5. get it from steampowered.com

    Football as in soccer, or football is in footie, i.e., European soccer?

    In any event, I think GOG is your best choice...they are based out of Europe, and they have a wider selection of some games you might like...start here, maybe?

    Civ 5 for turn based. Aside from command and conquer there is another RTS called Machines at War 3 for the Mac.

    What about any RPG type games? Any interest in those?

    You mean Starcraft 2 from Blizzard Entertainment. Battle.net is their online gaming service.

    Civ 5, as has already been mentioned, Hearhtstone (card game from Blizzard, actually pretty cool) and F1 2014 would be worth a go.

    Shadowrun Returns, I think I paid $2.50 during a sale for it.

    i know you felt the need to be a smart ass but you download the game from battle.net, not from blizzard.com, hence why i said FROM BATTLE.NET

    why didn't you say civ 5 isn't from steampowered.com but from sid meier? oh thats right, you post for no reason, you totally forgot that part because you were so fixed into trying to correct me

    *rolls eyes*

    i despise forums, a lot

    I'd recommend you to player Witcher and Witcher 2 ( king of the assassin's). It's one of the best game that ever played. Batman Arkham Asylum and City are one of the good ones. Borderlands, Hitman, Rage, Deus Ex, Total Rome War, Dragon Age Origins and 2. There are many others. You could download the steam for that

    You know what I despise? People who judge without knowing the stance the other side has. I wasn't trying to be a smartass, I just read something that I felt should be corrected and so I did. And you're right, it's true that you can download the game from Battle.net, so what you said wasn't really wrong – I didn't think of that. So now I stand corrected. And you know what? I feel okay about that. I make mistakes at times and of someone corrects me I just see it as a way to learn. Not as an offence.

    I cand understand your frustration with some people, becase many has an attitued, but it's not always like that.
