    Macgamestore.com is running an interesting little poll on what new FPS should be ported to the Mac. Some interesting results so far.

    Didn't EA say the latest version of the Frostbite engine would be Mac compatible?

    Don't care about any of these. I imagine Aspyr will port CoD: Ghosts eventually.

    Yes, supposedly. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Yeah, yeah, cold day in hell and all, but:

    All Halo games. We had the first one, and a man can dream, can't he?

    Forget Halo.

    I want the remnants of Bungie to come back hard to the Mac fanbase with a modern remake of the Marathon shooters…. Marathon X?

    Marathon 2 Durandal is, hands down, the best Mac game ever - too bad Bungie jumped ship after being bought by MS.

    They hired some guys to work on porting the engine, I never heard a time frame tho.

    EA are releasing more games on mac so its promising.

    none in that poll. BF4 would be nice, but I won't have a mac to run it until 2017, I imagine. Ghosts is almost universally considered to be bad, even for a COD game. Know nothing about arma3.

    So I'd go with Unreal Tournament 3

    Wasn't the Mac/Linux version almost done before it got cancelled?

    UT3 would be awesomesos!

    yes, it was. It makes the port's absence more painful

    Hello are you Feral or Aspyr fellas listening?! ;)

    Unreal Tournament 3 for Mac would be a nice addition to the OSX lineup! I'm sure the half-finished code is somewhere out there.

    Apparently Ryan Gordan is the man to ask, but he says never to ask about UT3 ever.

    I'd like to see FarCry 3 ported to Mac. That looks to be a fabulous shooter with a lot of content to keep you busy too. I can't really think of a single player FPS in the past year that is a better game than that.

    FarCry 3 Blood Dragon would be nice as well.

    Just bought BF4 on sale for $33 here in Korea! I'm playing it on my iMac I bought this summer (Boot Camp Win7) And I have to say the game runs great! I have the video settings at the highest level with no lag at all. I have no idea what the frame rates are but I am very happy with the game play. Best game that I have played in a long long time!

    I know they are old, but I'd like to play FEAR, Crysis on my iMac again...Not likely to happen I know, but they are two of my top ten favourite games.

    Soccer5se, what iMac model do you have to run BF4?

    I'd like to see BF ported for Mac.

    I have the late 2012 model with 8GB of ram i5 and the 680mx. The game itself still has a lot of bugs but it runs really smoothly through bootcamp.

    I have BF4 for PS4. I'd probably play it more if I had it to play on my MBP because of my situation and not spending a lot of time at my home. BF2 on the PC was a blast. My 30" monitor is just kind of sitting there and collecting dust for the time being.

    I miss Unreal Tournament, a great game. I have some old copies of it laying around here both Mac and PC.
