I only (willingly) go back to the windows world for one reason...

    The only game I play pretty much is "zuma deluxe", everywhere I looked was only a one hour test-run and I couldn't get anywhere except the first two temples, and so. Getting a gamepass account wasn't going to be worth it since one computer already has it (but that thing is so stinking slow even with just the two people who are now on it) but the cd-rom version is so much cooler. It's the full version, I'll eventually get to play through it. (I'm kind of bad at it at the moment because I am on leve four-one or something. (I've never been that far, and I am stil going, as of the last save.) All the game I have are PC, and I'm suprised it could handle the new game. :) Maybe one of theese days I'll pitch in and upgrade their memory once the holiday's are over. :)

    What PC games do you guys play that can only be played on a PC?

    You can run those games in a Virtual Machine:

    Virtual Box (free), or VMWare Fusion ($) or Parallels ($).

    Why don't you just use bootcamp?

    I have a parallels windows setup for only watching my son on his daycare camera.....the camera uses an active x control for full screen, and with a dual monitor setup at work, I pt him on 1 monitor and do my work on another.....windows is good for something at least :)

    I really don't play games. I have a windows drive in my core i7 hackintosh, I thought I might take advantage, but the few games that I do play are on the PS3. Something about relaxing in a recliner playing a game is more enticing then sitting in front of my desk.

    Zuma Deluxe... Crysis... the COD series... all playable with Wine on OSX. Now unless you have one heck of a Mac, some of the later CODs and Crysis run much better in Windows... but it still works.

    I used to go have to reboot in bootcamp everytime I wanted to play games.

    These days, I just use windows exclusively. Windows 7 is very good. Besides, the Office version is much better on it.

    I just wish Apple had implemented the trackpad better under windows.

    The STALKER games, Fallout 3/New Vegas, Black Ops, Bioshock 2. The list is endless really, even games with a Mac port tend to be slower then their Windows counterparts.

    only? 99% of games are PC dedicated. I think pure mac game is like 1% or something. if you want to play games a lot, don't buy mac. PC is better.
