    First of all, am I in the right place? If anyone knows a better section to post this then please tell me.

    Okay, well I am about to buy a PC game which is very much like 'The Sims' but is actually Desperate Housewives - The Game. I have three macs, two of which are intel-based. If I wanted to play this game on my Macbook what would I need to do? Install anything? Has anyone done anything similar?

    I am looking for any helpful suggestions at all.

    Thanks :)

    Boot Camp.

    Or VMWare Fusion, Parallels or Sun Virtual Box.

    And a copy of Windows.

    Have a look at MRoogle about more than plenty of threads about this.

    PS: PCs (Personal Computers) can run more than just Windows, almost any flavour of Linux for example.

    There are some games that use Cider from transgamming like Dragon Age.

    But this is an option if you're developing a game, so I think that Bootcamp is the best option, you need to reboot your mac though
