Mac is not the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “gaming”. Yes, mobile games are extremely popular on iPhone and iPad but when it comes to big, triple-A titles, Mas seems to stay behind PC and home gaming consoles. Even though Apple devices were always cutting edge, they are still not associated with video games.
You might not know this, but gaming on Mac computers is nothing new. In fact, the first Mac video games are pretty old and date back to the late 1970s. These games include titles such as Global War, Asteroids in Space, and Flight Simulator. The number of Mac titles never equaled (and probably never will) the number of PC or console games, but there were blockbusters and advanced titles as well. Myst (released in 1993), Sim City 2000 (1993), Wolfenstein 3D (1994), Command and Conquer (1996), and Diablo (1997) are just a few of them. And now? Look at titles like BioShock, DragonAge, and Guitar Hero. The Mac’s video game library may not be as extensive as PC’s or PlayStation’s but it certainly isn’t as bad as one might think. The iOS system is very fluid and efficient, and because of that gaming on Mac can be pretty entertaining.RTS games (also known as the Real-Time Strategy games) is a subgenre of strategy video games which doesn’t utilize the turn-based gameplay. In a good RTS games, players are trying to maneuver and position their units and structures to secure specific areas of the map (and/or destroy the assets of their opponents). In a typical RTS, players can create additional units and structures during the game. This is usually limited by a requirement to spend gathered resources. Said resources are gathered via controlling special points on the map and possessing certain types of units and structures which also serve this purpose.
All the best RTS games feature base building, resource gathering, technological development and indirect unit control. RTS games are historically one of the most popular genres in competitive gaming. Franchises like StarCraft, Warhammer 40 000: Dawn of War, Age of Empires and Command & Conquer are widely considered the best of all time.
