Yes, we know that Fix My PC Free is, first and foremost, and PC blog. But that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about our friend the Mac from time to time, right?
Today, we’re going to debunk the long-standing notion that Macs can’t play computer games. Sure, this notion may be largely true, but there are quite a few popular PC games that have been ported to Mac in order to show the other half how we live.
Without further ado, here are the 5 best PC games you can currently download on Macs:
5) Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2, unlike other MMOs, does not require a monthly subscription payment. Instead, users simply pay the $59.99 price tag and then enjoy PVE and PVP combat with a network of thousands of users. Players choose a race, profession, and skill set to help navigate around the competitive world.
Note: if MMOs are your thing, World of Warcraft is also available on the Mac.
4) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
At $15, San Andreas is priced surprisingly high for Mac users. But $15 is a price I would be willing to pay to play one of the world’s best video games again for the first time. San Andreas improved on the goofy insanity of Vice City by giving players a massive world where they could run around hijacking cars, planes, tanks, and more.
If you’re a fan of mayhem – or if you just need to blow off some steam – GTA: San Andreas is one of the best Mac games available today. And its graphics aren’t too bad for being a relatively old game.
3) League of Legends
Regardless of how you feel about competitive online gaming, there’s no doubting the cultural significance of League of Legends. LoL is the world’s most popular multiplayer online battle area (MOBA) game. It’s free to play on both the PC and the Mac.
Remember: LoL works best when you’re grouping with friends. Find a team of friends (Mac users can team up cross-platform with PC players and vice versa) and then get ready to have a blast.
2) The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings Enhanced Edition
The Witcher 2 is one of the best RPGs released in recent years. With stunning graphics and a plotline filled with twists and turns, the Witcher 2 aims to bring RPGs back to their roots. The game also features an exciting combat system and a crafting, inventory, and potions system that can provide hundreds of hours of exciting gameplay.
The Witcher 2 is currently available for Mac for $19.99
1) Team Fortress 2
I’ve been playing Team Fortress 2 ever since it was first released as part of the Orange Box bundle. Over the years, the game has changed in many ways but the core gameplay has remained the same. It’s easy to label Team Fortress 2 as a timeless classic, and it’s one of the best team-based multiplayer games ever made (if not the best).
And fortunately, Mac users can join in on all the hullaballoo surrounding Team Fortress 2. In fact, TF2 is currently free to play on the Mac.
