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.A simulation video game genre describes a vast and diverse category of games. These games are generally designed to closely simulate many of the real world aspects and activities. A typical simulation game have no predefined goals and players are allowed to freely control their characters and environments. Well-known examples are war games, business games, and role play simulations. The Sims franchise is considered by many as one of the best (and most accurate) simulation games of all time. That said, Sim City is known as the first “true” simulation game. Simulation games are great for players who like to take their sweet time and focus on many aspects during their gameplay.
