How do you spot a game compatible with OSX in a store?

    Do most games that are compatible with Mac OS have special packaging that signify they're for Macs only? Or are the games that come out for Mac in the standard PC packaging?

    I ask because I went to Best Buy yesterday to get some games for my new MBP. The only games I could find were the Battle Chests from Blizzard. These didn't indicate that they were for Mac but the System Requirements section on the box included something about OSX so I knew it would work.

    Other than that, every game they had said something about PC Game on the package. I looked at the System Requirements section for them anyway but after going through about 5, I couldn't find any mention of OSX.

    Is it just that there are so few games out for OSX that I needed to keep looking at the PC Games to see if some mentioned OSX on the system requirements or are there actually a lot more games specifically for OSX that Best Buy just doesn't carry?

    Most will say somewhere that they are Win/Mac compatible. However, there are far fewer games that actually are Mac compatible than windows.

    Most places has them all together. You may find a section for mac games at some gamestops, but its pretty small.

    Just look at the system req's it will tell you if its for mac or not.
    You can always just get bootcamp and play pc games on your mac
