Who Plays Games On Mac OS X? Go ahead and vote!
If you mean games from the Mac App Store, then yes.
If you mean external games, then no.. lol
I used to game on OSX. Now my desktop mac is a purely-Windows machine, and all for the better as far as the gaming department is concerned.
Don't like the options in this poll. My answers would be sometimes, but mostly not. As it is, my answer is no.
Update: the poll was modified to my liking!
I've reached the exact same conclusion as Pakaku - I have my 27" iMac Retina, but for games I simply built a Windows 7 machine that can play all the PC games natively at great frame rates.
I Play on Mac OS X and Windows 7 in Bootcamp, so should there not be a third and even forth option as in neither.
I do play games in OS X and also did so on Windows through Boot Camp. However, I just bought myself a Zotac Zbox that will serve as a Windows/Steam machine. My MBP is now OS X only and will primarily be for work/productivity.
I only play games on Mac OS X. Don't have any Console or Windows PC. I even dumped bootcamp when Elite-Dangerous was ported to the Mac.
But then, I don't mind if I miss some game because it's not available for my platform of choice.
Fully blown YES!!
Most (couple of times a week):
• X-Plane 10 with a H*U*G*E amount of add-ins (800 GB total...)
Sometimes (once a week):
• DiRT 3
• GRiD 2
• F1 2013
I have bought lots of OS X games through the MAS, (COD series, Tomb Raider, Rage, whatsmore) but hardly play them.
I mostly game on consoles, although I do have some games I play on OS X namely Elite Dangerous, Team Fortress 2 and maybe one day FFXIV.
I've played counter strike runs alright, I just use my Xbox One when I feel like gaming.
If a game is available for both OS X and Windows, I'll always play it in OS X just so I don't have to reboot. Otherwise, for OS-specific things (Star Citizen, etc.), Bootcamp it is.
I don't. I make games on my iMac but I play games in Windows/Bootcamp. But these days after using the keyboard and mouse all day I just prefer to sit back and play my 3DS, Wii U or PS4.
Not even from Steam?
There's a hell lot of good games that don't require high end computer to play. I played Rogue Legacy for hours even on my old macbook 2009. Some of the best games I ever played run fine even on low end macs: Aquaria, Limbo, Bastion, Portal 2..
The problem is that now that I upgraded to a rmbp 15", I'm having the impression that text rendering in most games are looking awful unless I put very high resolutions. Civilization V for example, the game looks great, but the text of the interface and menus look like crap unless I run it on 2880x1800, but this gives me another problem: the interface is so small I can barely read it. Any suggestions on this?
Nope. While I prefer Macs in general, I prefer PCs and consoles when it comes to gaming.
Not really. My Mac is purely for my uni work, with some game apps here and there.
Heck yes I do. I have over 60 Mac compatible games in my Steam account. Was just playing Hitman Absolution today.
Hey, do you know any games that would work on a early 2008 MacBook ? I am going on a trip in a few days and I have one day on it.
Oh, if the text is hard to read, the best thing to do is to lower your resolution. Its should make it a bit bigger text but, the text may not look super good, nor the gameplay.
About 85% of my Steam library has Mac support. Steam is the best place to find/buy games for the Mac.
Thanks for your feedback! I have updated the poll.
That has a x3100 GPU? If you are looking for 3D games, probably looking at pre-2005 stuff, Playstation 2 caliber for example (some of these would require booting into Windows/bootcamp),
Alien vs Predator (classic version from 2000)
Beyond Good & Evil
Also emulators, anything pre PS2 like epsxe (playstation), openEMU (several consoles) or Mupen64 Plus (N64)
and a bunch of indie games like, Plants Vs Zombies, Peggle, Sparkle, Trine, Braid, Limbo etc...
But you're getting games from one source, why not another? Just curious.
Now, that's a handy Xenforo feature! I assume you were able to this without mod help? I've changed my vote.
Half Life is a must play, if you've never played it. It's a great experience even today.
