I just downloaded Bioshock 2 and have just finished playing Rage for the third and probably last time.  If you purchased any of these games from the Mac App Store they are re downloadable from your "History" and playable so long as you do not upgrade to macOS 10.15.  Aspyr has removed these 32bit games from sale as of mid June:

    Bioshock Infinite
    Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
    Call of Duty
    Call of Duty 2
    Call of Duty 4
    Call of Duty Black Ops
    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3
    Civilization IV
    Civilization IV: Colonization
    Doom 3
    Duke Nukem Forever
    Geometry Wars 3
    Homeworld Remastered Collection
    Quake 4
    Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
    Star Wars: Empire at War
    Star Wars: Jedi Academy
    Star Wars: Jedi Outcast
    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
    Sims 2: Life Stories
    Sims 2: Pet Stories
    Sims 2: Castaway Stories
    Tomb Raider 2
According to Aspyr; "we’ve decided to remove these games from sale by the end of the day today (6/17/19). After today, the entire library of Aspyr titles on Mac will be 64-bit or will receive a 64-bit update before September.

I have to admit I like the challenge of a simple rampage.  I like Doom and Quake for that reason alone although there was a story line it did not interfere with simply killing everything in you path to the next level.  Over time though I began to relaize especially in some games the story line was a very important element in deciding what to do next.  More than just strategy which is a big part of Borderlands 2 eg weapon choice, which ones to keep, which ones to sell and which ones to store is just one element.  But a really absorbing story line can change the whole nature of the way you play and which missions you choose.  A bit like RPG's you can also choose which character you want to be, each one has different skills and different enhancements.  I'm playing the game for the third time as a different character and it's a very different experience.

Hi, everyone, just joined this forum.  UmarOMC1, I played the Mac App Store version of this game nearly 2 years ago on a 2012 MBP with standard configuration so I seriously doubt anyone will have any trouble with a current device but maybe your case is different.  I can say despite it's huge size and almost equally huge price it was well worth the effort.
