Anyone ever used parallel 5 or another virtual windows to play games? Parallel's website claims it can play games but how well do they really run on the new parallels 5? Im sure it can play weaker games but what about call of duty...crysis?? Thanks

Parallels will run the less demanding games OK, but games like Crysis will hardly be playable..virtualization is really meant more for productivity apps than games which really heavily on the graphics hardware which they can only access "virtually" through Parallels or other VM software.
If you are serious about games, the only way to play it would be through a Boot Camp installation of Windows..
