    Hello,

    I just got a new 27 inch iMac :D and am looking for the best site to download games. I mean a legal distribution service, like steam, etc. The only problem is, steam has virtually no selection for OSX so I'm wondering if there is an alternative.

    Thanks.

    I plan to install windows in the next few months, but don't want to buy a new version of W7 atm. Thus, my original post.

    Specifically, I was wondering if macgamestore.com is a legit site and if anyone has used their download service.

    Check out direct2drive. They have a really decent mac selection and prices that are usually competitive with steam.

    Steam has quite a few games for Mac. also check out gametreemac.com for a lot of Mac games. However your best bet would be to buy an OEM copy of windows for 80-100 bucks and install steam. Games are cheaper on Windows.

    Macgamestore is at least a part of the same network as www.insidemacgames.com and that site has been around for ages as one of the best communities for mac gaming there is. IMG was a magazine released back in the 1990s and was started by Tuncer Deniz, which also was producer for Marathon II, Abuse and Myth.

    Macgamestore, Mac App Store, Direct2Drive, Amazon all have Mac digital stores. Their are also a bunch of smaller digital outlets that are also legit.
