    Hi there!
    I need a suggestion.
    I have a retina MacBook Pro and, with it, I'll play mostly two games: Guild Wars 2 (and there's already a Mac client) and FIFA 13.
    Now, the problem is: should I make a Bootcamp partition only for FIFA 13 or should I just install something like Parallels?

    Thank you.

    I do not know if anyone has successfully gotten FIFA 13 to run right with Wineskin, or Crossover... or anything else that uses Wine.

    Its more likely to work in Parallels, but will most likely have MUCH lower performance than something Wine based... since you have to emulate a whole computer and run Windows.

    If you want the best performance out of the game and you don't mind running Windows, then bootcamp is usually the best way to play Windows games.... because it is just using Windows as the game was designed to do. When you dual boot (Bootcamp) your machine and then boot into Windows, your machine is a PC... its not like one, or able to run software for one etc... it really is a normal Windows PC at that point.
