God, when are they going to realize there's mac users out there too. There's no mac version. Guess they aren't getting my money.

You can always go out and purchase a coy of Windows to play games in Bootcamp, although I have to admit I've never been able to make any game work in Bootcamp on my 2-yr-old (ancient!) macbook.

Champs runs perfectly on bootcamp.

They would be better of developing for the most obscure of game consoles before it is worth it to develop for the Mac. There is probably still a larger install base of original Xboxes and PS2's than there is Mac's and especially Mac-only users. The only reason you even see Mac games at all is when a dev team are Mac fanboys.Big companies go for the biggest expenditure to earnings ratio. This is why you don't see many games for the Mac or many Hollywood movies aimed at native speakers of Tagalog.

This is why no self respecting gamer buys a mac. Macs are what you buy your clueless girlfriend or grandparents who are confused by computers.

@ Budokan - I think it depends on what hardware you run. My graphics isn't strong enough to handle it, from what I understand, despite the fact that it's not a terribly old computer. They didn't build macbooks way back then (2 years ago) with gaming on Bootcamp in mind, I guess.@ Deadlock - It took almost 20 minutes for an unprovoked mac insult. What took you so long?

I'm with you - I loved Champions PnP game back in college, I'd have loved the chance to play it, but I'm not rebooting my system every time I want to play my MMO. That's simply unacceptable. The next game that comes along with Mac support as fully fleshed out as Blizzard has with WoW will probably get some cash from me, and my whole-hearted support.

This whole "gamers don't buy Macs" argument is sort of a non-starter. Of course most "gamers" don't buy Macs, but MMOs are not exactly normal games are they? They have the necessity of needing numbers for the social aspect of the game to flourish. Fanboy arguments aside, a successful MMO will try to capture as many players as it can, and I'm sorry to say, buy the game you like not having a native Mac client is making your gameplay poorer.Some commenters on this sight love to draw wild conclusion based on almost no evidence to support their opinions, so I'll throw one out there for you:By almost all measures, World of Warcraft is the most successful MMO ever. It has native Mac support. No MMO will ever be as successful as WoW without offering a Mac client. You can write that in stone.

My point is that if games aren't your primary concern when deciding on a machine then you shouldn't complain when most of them don't run on it.
