Don't get it wrong, though; it isn't that Macs lack the capability to run games. Heavens no! In fact, there are several games supported by Mac out there. However, most game developers out there don't tailor their games for MacOS. And this limits your options.
Before we go any further, we must emphasize that there are still quite a number of Mac-compatible games available, including Call of Duty Black Ops III, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Civilization VI, among others.
But while most functioning Macs would comfortably handle said games, some are especially good at handling the high processing, high graphics needs of a heavy gamer. When looking at a good computer for gaming, it is crucial to consider the features below.
Now, as we mentioned, there is a way you can install Windows on your Mac and enjoy all the games that come with it. We also saw that Parallels is the better, more efficient alternative to Mac's Boot Camp.
To break it down, Parallels is a fast, powerful and easy application that allows the running of Windows on your Apple Mac. The best part about it is that you can switch between the two operating systems and enjoy all the Window's compatible games without rebooting.
To get started, you simply need to install Parallels in your Mac. Then install Windows using Parallels. If you hadn't installed Windows on your Mac, Parallels will automatically detect the absence of Windows. It will then download and install it for you.
In summary, it's safe to say that Macs are not the best computers for gaming. But at least now, you know that you don't need to buy a whole other PC to enjoy all your favorite Windows games. With a little help from Parallels, you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Check out their website for a free trial download.
Wild Tangent updates worked for a while, but now they are blocked. And I think I erased all sorts of stuff so nothing shows under "Quarantine" and Norton does not recognize what has just been blocked! The last time this happened I somehow managed to hit the correct keys and got Wild Tangent back. One VERY unhelpful suggestions given was to contact Wild Tangent for their input to resolve issues. When Wild Tangent is blocked, how am I supposed to do that??? Norton may be great at protecting stuff but games??? REALLY???

Designer and programmer Travis Baldree intended Fate to combine elements from games like Diablo and NetHack and make them accessible to a casual gaming audience, while also maintaining a level of appeal to hardcore gamers. He eschewed a grim and gritty style, in favor of a more inviting atmosphere. Although Baldree had considered the idea for several years, production of the game began in October 2004, with a total development time of about five months.
The editors of Computer Games Magazine presented Fate with their 2005 "Best Role-Playing Game" award. It was a runner-up for their list of the year's top 10 computer games. Fate was also a finalist for PC Gamer US's "Best Roleplaying Game 2005" and "Best Value 2005" awards, which ultimately went to Dungeon Siege II and Guild Wars, respectively.

This is the PowerPC version of the WildTangent game FATE. FATE is a modern take on the original roguelike concept, with customizeable characters and fully randomly generated levels, quests, monsters, and items. There is immense replayability and a dizzying array of different play styles. Controls are mostly point and click with hotkeys for certain tasks. The soundtrack is short, but not annoying, and the variety in levels is amazing as you would expect from RNG. There is always an underlying main quest which is also randomly generated, but you can continue with the same character even after beating this quest indefinitely. It is possible to "retire" a character and pass on some items to a new save. Later games in the series can also take advantage of this. 2b1af7f3a8
