    Can my Macbook run Fallout 3 WITHOUT BootCamp or any other software that I'd have to buy?

    If no, could you recommend any other games like Fallout 3 or GTA that a MacBook CAN run?
    Thanks

    Fallout 3 is not available for OS X, so you'd either have to Bootcamp or run it in a VM. The free VM applications (I'm thinking mainly of Virtualbox here) tend to run graphically-intensive applications rather poorly. Add that in with the already poor graphics in your MacBook, namely the GMA 950, and you're going to have a bad time. I've looked into running Fallout 3 (one of my absolute favorite games ever!) on the GMA950 myself, and the results seem to be mixed.
