    As you probably noticed, there isn't a lot of dedicated Mac gaming sites out there.
    I'm convinced there are more than we think but are perhaps too small to be known for most of us.

    Mine aside (not looking for any "publicity" here), what are the dedicated Mac gaming blogs that you follow and / or know of?

    Does sound like your just looking for publicity to be honest.

    It would be interesting to know if there are any others out there besides MacGamerHQ and Inside Mac Games, both of which I visit frequently. I'm not aware of any myself although I haven't bothered searching either.

    Not many sites that I've noticed at all really.
    The same for youtube channels, at the moment my own and HQ's are the largest I know of.

    I'm a big fan of ControlCommandEscape (I also love the name).

    The reviews are spot on, extremely well written, and never sound like an ad for the reviewed publisher. Respect :apple:

    Other notables are the GameAgent blog with a really cool series right now on "confessions of a Mac developer"

    Also, the guys over at AppleTell do a great job covering games.

    MacLife has picked up their games coverage, and TUAW has too.

    CultofMac now has a couple of dedicated games journalist who writes quite well.

    So there are actually quite a few!

    I get that, that's why I rather say it upfront. That said, it's not because I run a mac gaming blog that I can't ask about others!

    Surprisingly for most, having "competitors" is very good thing online (unlike a brick and mortar store for example). The more people cover Mac gaming, the more people will support it and the more mac users will discover that you can actually play some great modern games on their Macs.

    Still, the community is extremely tiny and it's always possible that other blogs exist but are too small to be known by you or me...

    I don't want to plug my site but I'm happy to see people naturally mentioning other sites and therefore help them be better known! So keep the suggestions going!

    In the Dark Days of Mac gaming there was another really good site, Macgamer (also called MacGamer's ledge.) They had a fairly active forum, held some pretty cool contests regularly (won a copy of Myst III for writing Myst fanfic, that was a blast) and did great interviews. I miss 'em.

    Sad that I never got to see those sites... As you probably now, Macgamer.com is not redirecting to Deliver2Mac store, meaning since 2000, we lost 2 established Mac gaming sites...

    For those of you who used to follow those sites, what is it that you liked the most? Miss the most now?
