    Agree. For games, definitely use bootcamp.

    You could add more RAM or use a separate hard disk to improve virtual machine performance but ultimately if you have a need for speed then you have to use boot camp.

    I haven't had much luck playing games im Fusion or Parallels. Even older, non-3D games like RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 and SimCity 3000 do not perform properly.
