    Hi everyone!
    Hope all of you are having a wonderful day!

    I know it sounds somewhat childish to someone,
    and one main reason why I try to choose MBP 15" 2017 over MBP 13" 2017 is to play several games with a dedicated graphic card in it.
    I am actually into all city building games especially 'Cities Skylines' and 'Transport Fever'.
    I am not greedy, so I would be perfectly satisfied only if these two games are playable at MBP 15" 2017 with Radeon Pro 560.
    High resolution? I already gave up that. haha. 1920*1080 resolution with medium setting would be fine.

    I have searched at google and youtube for that,
    but almost reviewers checked a playability based on early stage of scenario, in case of Cities Skylines,
    and really few reviews for Transport Fever.

    Those kinds of games give a more burden on CPU and GPU as playing time gets longer and longer,
    so I would like to know if MBP 15" 2017 can manage the burden even when the size of city hits 100,000 population or more.

    Please give me a helpful comment regarding that.
    I don't want to buy two computers, MBP 13" and a window desktop at the same time, so I really hope your answer will be positive :D

    Always wish your happiness!
    Thanks!

    It should work fine. My 15" 2016 MBP with 460 runs CIV VI just fine. I'm sure that is more graphics intense than cities skyline.
