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.Strategy video games are focused mainly around thinking and careful planning in order to achieve victory. The action itself can scale from squad-based tactics to world domination. In most strategy video games, the players are given a godlike view of the game world and a direct control over their units. Just like role-playing games, strategy games have developed from traditional board games.
Strategy video games can be divided into four general archetypes: real-time, turn-based, focused on strategy or focused on tactics. The best strategy games of all time are: Civilization, Heroes of Might and Magic, Age of Empires, Command and Conquer, and Warcraft. They’re designed for gamers who want to control every aspect of the game.
