    Hello guys,
    today I'd like to buy and start a new game, so I went in Steam and I found Metro Last Light and Bioshock Infinite at 19,99€.
    I played like 5-6 months ago Metro for an hour and it is ok.
    I don't like so much game where there are monster/magician and thing like that.
    Which game for OSX do you recommend for me (also not in this list).

    Thanks :)

    both are good but bioshock infinite i found more 'fun'.

    tomb raider is excellent, one of the best games ive played in recent years.

    enjoying deus ex human revolution, at the moment, very good so far.

    Ok, I'm gonna to buy Bioshock :)
    I'll see also Tomb Raider... you bought the version which came out in 2013?
    I have Deus Ex in my Steam account but it is the Windows version because when I bought a graphic card they gave me that.

    Thanks!

    Another vote for Bioshock Infinite. Definitely more fun; the story is good, it rips along and the DLC actually enhances the series.

    Last Light looks good, and the story is well done, but it's not 'fun' as such. Felt it was a bit of a slog sometimes. It may be the ominous, oppressive atmosphere (which is well done), but it could also be down it being very linear.

    Tomb Raider is fun too... except the interactive cut-scenes. They are pointless.

    Batman games are worth a mention as well.

    Fantastic, I'll buy Bioshock now and then Tomb Raider.
    How does Bioshock will run on my iMac Late 2013 with Iris Pro?

    I can't vouch for how well it'll run on your iMac as I've never tried on that particular model but I can vouch for what a great game BioShock Infinite is. I personally would also choose it over Metro Last Light. Have fun! :)

    If it's deus ex human revolution (the third one) then if you upgrade to the directors edition (doesn't cost much) it's steamplay so you get the mac version. The normal version might be steamplay too but not sure

    Runs great for me; I have the 27" version. Got a little screen-tearing when I was first playing it (everything set on high as it would allow), but have gone back recently and that wasn't an issue anymore.

    It doesn't say what graphic card you have in your sig, but even if you need to lower some settings it will still look great. Don't recall any noticeable slowdown when playing through, and sometimes there is a LOT going on on-screen.

    Aye, and it's on sale via 'Humble Bundle' at the moment - https://www.humblebundle.com/store

    They also have 'Metro: Last Light' on sale too.

    re: Tomb Raider

    I have to agree with this too!
    I actually got Tomb Raider free as part of a promotion last year where you got a Steam code to download a copy, bundled with an ATI Radeon video card for a Windows PC.

    But when I put in the code, I found I could also get the Mac version. I didn't even bother for a long time, because I played Tomb Raider years ago and figured, "How different could it be from the old one?"

    Well, it's a LOT better! Excellent graphics and a good story-line. Really shows off what you can do on a Mac.

    One thing I've found really helps the gaming experience though.... If you can, buy a gamepad type controller for your Mac. I'm using an old Logitech cordless "Rumblepad" controller I bought way back in 2004 or so, but it works fine. The Batman games are great with it too.

    Both are great games, but I'll give Bioshock Infinite the edge since I love the series.
