    First of all, you should be posting in the MacBook Pro forum; Mac Pros are desktop workstations.


    The easiest thing to do would be to install Windows via Boot Camp. That would remove many of the restrictions Macs have with games. Blizzard generally goes out of their way to make Mac versions of their games (WoW, Diablo III and StarCraft II all have Mac ports), but many developers completely ignore the Mac platform.

    If you look at his username, I'm guessing thats his date of birth. Just a guess though.

    Anyway, if you look here (Steam) you'll see a lot of the games available Mac.

    Actually you are correct that is my birthday and just FYI I bought the computer on my own it's call having a real job in life and save to get what you want... It's crazy how it works, right?

    Yeah, sure, whatever, I wasn't really the one making a reference to your age. I just made an observation. And it's crazy how your parents pay for food, your house, electricity, car, TV, Internet and so forth isn't it?

    It could be his own money too. I bought my first Mac at 17 with my own money, I had to work all summer for it. Cost me around 2000$ with taxes. His model is worth more but still, my point is that he technically could have bought it with his own money.

    Anyway, to answer OP's question, I suggest looking at Blizzard games which are available for Mac. Also take a look at Mac games on Steam. You can currently buy The Orange Box (Mac compatible) for $19.99 which is a steal if you don't already have it.

    Otherwise consider installing Windows 7 on your Mac with Boot Camp, this will allow you to play all Windows-only games.

    What's more annoying is that the OP has already made one pretentious post on the same topic already, exclaiming that he has no limit to how much he will spend. Keep to one thread.

    It's tough being a 1%-er. One would expect that means that you live extraordinarily comfortably and can afford any number of baubles as if they were peanuts. But in reality, though you may have a larger income, you probably also have that much greater expenditures. There are things like paying for your children's college (since they aren't very likely to be granted the sorts of loans and scholarships that others may get due to family income limits placed on potential awards). Then one's property may be taxed at a higher rate, and besides, if you make more than $250k or so, federal and state income taxes and municipal property taxes all told make for a 50%+ effective tax rate. So it's not like you are exactly rolling in it even from the get-go. And of course you aren't eligible for any government handouts. So yeah, it's hard to be a 1%-er. You learn to make do and live frugally, as odd as that sounds.

    So you'd rather be one of the 99%-ers' instead?

    OP, you have so many threads asking what programs, games, accessories to buy for your rMBP. Stick to one thread.

    Mods, please take note.

    I'll echo that. The Blizzard games run well on OSX, and are great games. World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2, and Diablo 3 should keep you busy for a long while.

    As others have suggested, go on Steam and check the Mac section.

    However, I find it easier to just install Windows via Boot Camp and play games on that. More options and honestly, the gaming performance is much better.

    his user ID, plus i was annoyed with his other post as well. apprently he doesnt care what he gets or how much it costs. if he really worked for the money ( at 17) then you care about what you spend your money on.

    ----------

    you HAVE to be trolling

    what kid? also, i may not be in the top 1% , but i do well for my self. When i do have kids, im letting them know they have to get scholarships, just like my parents told me.

    we're living in an era of super low taxes, so none of us should be complaining about anything.

    I don't care if you bought the laptop yourself or not (note: I'd bet my bankroll you didn't), but you need to stop making threads asking the same stupid questions.

    I mean you literally have 6 threads open asking the same, idiotic, vague question "What does a computer do?".

    Pfffff, goodluck keeping your "real job in life". Whatever that means.

    yes, I am. But, like i said, it had more to do with him posting in like 6 different threads saying what can he download or buy . It didnt matter what it was and money is no issue. He just wanted to get stuff. At 17, yes, it must be nice.
