i play the oregon trail, with all the settings maxed out! 8) :p

I play FM10 regularly on a small/medium database with upwatds of 10 leagues, on my 2GHZ unibody Macbook (before the MBP rebrand) with 2GB of RAM.

Thats the only really modern game i play. I dont play much else, but when i do, i play games like Rise of Nations(2003), Settlers 3 (2000?) and old DOS games, since i found the Boxer emualtor. Mainly Death Rally

Hi all,

I have similar question with pirate_ninja, well i just bought my new MacBook Pro, and i m really newbie with the OS etc etc. I have managed to find a way to connect my xbox 360 controller as 1st task of my goal . The 2nd step is to achieve to play PRO evolution soccer 2010 on my mac, that would be awesome. the thing is , i ve been searching throughout the internet to find out if Konami made a version combatible with Mac or not and there isn't such a website. Can anyone tell me who is more familiar than me if it is possible or not. Eventually, i ll stop hoping that there is a way to do that.

thanks in advance

I ran NFS:Shift (win), Crysis (win) and CoD4 (OSX) on my Mac Pro and they all ran very well. Tried out WoW on it too which ran fine at full settings but didn't really like the game much to be honest...

Hopefully the MacBook Pro will be able to run the first two, probably not much difference between the 8800GT and the 9600m GT. CoD4 made me feel sick after 15 minutes so that ones gone now.

I'd love to play more than WoW or SL ... just tough to find anything that I would like to play thats able to be played on a Mac. I'm just too stubborn to install Bootcamp and deal with Windows again. I would absolutely LOVE to play Black and White (1 and/or 2) and Monkey Island on this beautiful 27" iMac, but alas I can't find em :-P

Crossover Games might be an option worth considering.

Or a PS3/XBox/Wii.

I've been looking all over the internet but can't find any site which lists all(or at least a bulk) of mac games. Anyone know of any? Because my specific area of interest is action/adventure/rpg (not mmorpg) which the mac games seem to lack. Something like final fantasy or god of war. Any of these made specifically for mac? (not bootcamp).
