    Well i managed to stop playing World of Warcraft last year, and this year when i was getting a new computer i deliberately got a very low powered Vista laptop so i couldn't play it... However when i finally switched to apple and got my 20" Aluminum iMac... a certain game popped up again! Now i am hooked just as bad as before!...

    Anyway, ignoring that, my main point was that i didn't buy a mac for games, but i am an insanely nerdy gamer (lol) and i was just wandering what mac only games there are about as i have no knowledge of this field!

    I have seen reviews in mac magazines and i might be completely wrong but it seems that there are 'download only' games that are not to shabby!

    Can anyone point me in a non warcraft direction please!?

    kthnxbi!

    I have not been able to play any computer game in the last 3 years or so that WoW has been out. WoW totally turned me off first person shooters which was all I used to play. I had no concerns getting a Mac since I knew it would play the one game I ever played. I also gave up WoW for awhile. The 24" iMac sucked me right back in.

    No matter how hard I try to go cold-turkey, I can't seem the shack the addiction of WoW. I went so far as to buy an Xbox 360 Elite with 5 games to keep me occupied, but alas after a short month, I went right back to it.

    I don't think I'll stop playing WoW till they release WoW 2? Hahaha, who knows? :rolleyes:

    WOW is nice, but the gameplay is repetitive, you know the storys are interesting but then you have to hack through a group of monsters that as long as you have more hitpoints you know how it will end...

    i downloaded the halo demo... i know its old.... but its fun still, multiplayer where you dont know what the other people will do...

    I kinda hooked on WOW for awhile (6 months)

    Its a really crap game, I was even bored when I was playing it. However I kept playing it. Why? I didn't know what else to do. Now I have some hobbies and enjoy writing to my penpals. I deleted the POS game, and couldn't be happier.

    Just delete it, and find some friends to hang out with. Go to the movies, start exercising, go to a cafe, the art gallery, start a new language, ask someone out on a date. Anything!!

    I've played WoW for 2 years straight, no other games. I quit about 2 months ago & never looked back. I previously played other MMORPGS such as EQ, SWG, & DAOC. Once you play an MMORPG, it's hard to leave for another genre. If you truly want to break WoW, I'd suggest trying another MMORPG. I plan on playing some FPS games and LOTRO until Age of Conan comes out (which is gunna rock faces). :D

    It seems that the people who started WoW as their 1st MMO, have the hardest time leaving. It's a fun game, but when you login bored....and leave bored....then it's time to quit. :p

    I'm eagerly awaiting season 3 to start next week.

    That said, I'm also waiting for Guitar Hero 3 coming to the mac in the next month or so. I would recommend getting that.
