    Ok, this may sound REALLY silly to you guys who know
    what you're talking about, but spare me.
    I have Ultimate Hunting 08 and a couple racing games on
    discs that I've been using on my PC, but I'm getting
    a MacBook in January and I'm just wondering whether
    or not the Mac will support these games?
    I'm pretty sure the answer is a no.. but can you at
    least run them out of Parallels?

    Chances are that these are PC only (ie Windows). However, there are various options to run PC Games on an Intel Mac if you use those. Boot-Camp comes with the new Macs and other options like VMWare, Crossover, etc will also allow PC games to play on the Mac. All with the exception of Crossover require a Full Copy of XP installed on the Mac. There are a lot of experienced users here that can probably add or assist on this. Main thing is its not entirely impossible...

    May have issues running games with virtualization. Boot Camp is your best bet.
