  1. Hey,

    Alright so all my life I have used consoles for gaming and not really a PC. I did use to play Doom a ways back but other than that I have not played games on PC and wanted to know if anyone knew of a good game for a Mac. I'm not really a strategy person. I was thinking maybe the Sim game. How is that? Can I play that on a Mac?

    Aloha,
    Tara

    I don't think it has ever been confirmed, but I assume he means 'Google'.

    ^ No play battlefield heroes. Its EA and DICE supported and its also free. http://www.battlefieldheroes.com

    Its also online only, which is a plus.

    And, im pretty sure it works on MAC, as long as you have internet explorer or firefox as it boots from the browser. havnt tested it though.

    Some Blizzard games run on Mac OS, including Diablo II, Starcraft, World of Warcraft and Warcraft III. Unreal Tournament 2004.. The Sims... There's an OK selection of games for Mac these days.

    Here's an exhaustive list:

    Id' recommend playing like Diablo 1 then Diablo 2 and prep for Diablo 3 that comes out later this year after many many years of waiting!

    Or join me and be a WoW Head (world of warcraft player) but be warned...there really is no going back.

    It's a never ending roleplaying game where u start at lvl 1, get to lvl 80 then play along with anywhere from 5 people to kill a boss, to 40 people to kill a single boss. u can pick:

    different:
    fractions
    race
    sex
    class
    professions (skills)
    in game roles (a tank, a healer, a damage dealer)

    oh and the game like basically never ends, always new content coming out.

    see www.worldofwarcraft.com (right side of screen) for a free trial that only takes a few minutes to d/l. Trial last 10days, enjoy!

    (oh over 11million people play it online with you, have fun!)

    Don't do it! You will get addicted! I am just recently clean after 4 years of being on it.

    clean...:haha:

    You must lack in the ability to have self control.

    It is possible to play a video game in moderation and not let it control your life.

    Did you know that the average american watches tv 28 hours a week and the average gamer only plays for 27 hours a week?

    something to think about...

    But how much TV does the average gamer watch?

    average gamer watches 7 hours on top of the 27 played hours.


    (I watch more tv then that though as im dual monitored and watch movie/tv same time im playing games ;) )

    Oh Papa ? for you..

    how many hours a week do you think you watch tv, go drinking or how many hours of your day do you waste sleeping?

    Lets say you're the traditonal person that waste 8 hours of your life to sleep a night ( I sleep 5) if you live to be 70 you slept for 23 years (roughly, 8516 days) seems like a bad addiction in it self eh?

    ;)

    heck if you watch 3 hours of tv a night you waste 45 days a year watching tv.

    Sigh......

    The "average" person has less than two arms. Something to think about.

    No luck with BFH if you have a mac. Despite launching the game from a browser, the game is actually downloaded to your computer and installed under the EA Games folder in "Program Files."


    You can actually launch the application by double clicking the .exe, but it will not connect.

    LOL - Sleep is wasted time... I like that. I, too, sleep for only 5-6 hours a night, but it's not always by choice. I'm a night owl but my kids get up early - silly me tries to do both.

    I second what all the guys have said about Blizzard games if you have a Mac - they've provided the best support for Mac gaming in my opinion. Most of the games you buy from them are hybrid media meaning they will work on either platform. Give it a shot, but go in fully aware that most people who try World of Warcraft get sucked right in.

    Don't worry, after a week, you will be paying for the game and wont be doing anything else if you can help it. It is WAY
    too addictive. I found it very hard to quit.
