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.Sports video games are designed to simulate the real-world sports. Most modern sports have their video game counterparts, including team sports, combat sports, and motorsports and even extreme sports. Games like Madden NFL series focus on actually playing the sport, whilst others focus on strategy and sport management (e.g. Championship Manager). Some top games (like the FIFA franchise) can even emphasize both aspects.
Sports game genre has been very popular throughout the history of video games. The reason behind this is a high competitiveness just like with real-world sports. Best sports games are physically and tactically challenging, and they’re often testing player's accuracy, precision, and reaction time. Most sports games try to model the athletic characteristics required by that sport, e.g. strength, speed, stamina, accuracy, etc. Just like their respective sports, these video games take place in a pre-defined stadium, track or arena.
