Games on Mac, Hell Yes!!
Authored by: MacOSXAddict on Aug 25, '04 12:44:33PM
I love gaming on my Mac. I Play the Following:

Battlefield 1942 (with Desert Combat, Red Orchestra, and pirates mods (more Coming)),

Call of Duty (Revolt Mod, and waiting on a half dozen others)

Unreal 2K3/2K4 (Jailbreak, Alien Swarm, FragOps, Air Buccaneers, Death Ball, Zombie Hunter, Un-Wheel, Troopers: Dawn of Destiny, and awaiting a couple others to be finished)

On a big Note Almost All of the Above Mods are total conversions and make the game a totally new experience like getting a new game for FREE!!!

I love even more when I show up to the local area LAN parties with my Dual 2gig G5 and 23" LCD and get the reactions from the win-kiddies (WK) like:

"Wow is that some new AlienWare hardware?"

"Wait, that's an Apple, you can't use that..."

"How come your screen looks so good, my 19"CRT set at 1024x768 looks nothing like yours... (Me) That's because your 1024x768 is not 1920x1200 try upping the res... (WK)!!!HOLY $#!+ !!! 1920x1200!!!",

"Hey that's unfair, you have a wider screen that lets you see more of the field of view..."

And the last was the best... "WOW, I never thought a Mac could do something like that, maybe I'll have to look into Apple again, I was always told by my friends that they were junk. (Me) do you jump off a bridge when your friends say it cool also? (WK) Well no, but most of them work in IT departments.. (Me) Truthfully, most of the people in IT love windows because with it they will always have Job Security fixing it, with Mac there are almost NEVER any issues, and on top of that I'm a Senior Network Engineer for the US Department of Transportation and I love my Mac, I can do nearly anything you can do on PC short of playing every game there is. BUT, admitting the truth, only the best games for the PC ever come out on the Mac and you usually have to wait a at least a little while for it. Example UT2K4 took less than a Month, but Neverwinter Nights took over a year. (WK) That Sucks!! But with all the other stuff you showed me about Mac OSX having the Heart of UNIX and an X11 windows manager, I wouldn't have to have my machines dual boot WIN/Linux anymore. The best of both worlds, a very stable UNIX environment and the ability to run Mainstream programs in the same interface!!!"
