Based on hours played F1 2013 (will be replaced eventually by whatever we get next to supersede it).

The next was Borderlands 2 which I guess makes sense because of the huge amount of content.

Unreal (the very first one). Awesome graphics for the day (loved that Voodoo card), nice and long single player mode, sadly underrated but terrific multiplayer.
I must add World of Xeen (Might & Magic 4 and 5 combined), the best RPG I had the pleasure to play.
Maybe I'm jaded since I've played so many games (my completed games list is around 460 lines long), but these oldies are the ones on top for me.

In recent times, Borderlands (the first opus) would be first, ex aequo with Fallout 3. Far Cry 3 was a blast, as well as Sleeping Dogs, and Valiant Hearts: The Great War was VERY moving.

Sigh, it's hard to select only one game...

I said "Marathon" but since people are listing number two I'd say the Borderlands franchise.  I loved them all and got tons of DLC, well all except "Tales from the Borderlands" which didn't interest me.

Umm, what are you guys talking about???

Let's review. Here's the question:

What Mac game couldn't you survive without, and why?

Are you guys all still playing Hellcats and Civ IV and Unreal (first one) and Marathon every day since these are the ones you just can't live without? And I thought I was the one who is old and heading up senility hill. LOL at all y'all. :w00t:

Lot of racing game ports but aren't my thing. Waiting for Feral question on Simulation, multi-player RPG, Strategy, or MMOG ;) .

I'd need to get a racing rig with steering wheels and foot pedals to play racing games.  Keyboard controls for driving suck.  My wife likes to play these in theatre lobbies but I've never been interested in driving since I outgrew the Disneyland Autopia and started actually driving real cars... then I learned to hate it after a brief infatuation.

More into RPG and FPS, love the combinations of those too.

The environments. Racing games have always been on the forefront in this case, graphically.

It's that ability to go and try out that track you just watched a race at on TV, or to be able to try a virtual version of that car you could never hope to drive in the real world!

Plus if the AI is good - or you can find a group of friends that keep to the rules then the challenge of beating them and satisfaction if you do :)

Question for the June newsletter!

If you could rewind time and bring one vintage game to Mac, what would it be and why?

Mass Effect -- Commander Shepard's epic journey is one of my most memorable gaming experiences and in the course of the series, I really started to live with and actually care about my party members. There was a true emotional connection. What more can one expect from a 'game'?

From Feral catalog? Worms 3D would be nice. It still works on 10.11. Not sure how much work maintenance would it require to bring it to digital distribution.

There are some games worth saving after MacSoft.
Halo 1, UT 2004, Age of Mythology, Age of Empires 3.

Hard to choose ONE.

Just how vintage are we talking here? The "frak-I'm-really-old" type of vintage? In that case I would probably pick the original Elite, which was ported to everything that was better than a pocket calculator, but for some reasons never made it to the Mac. Or the holy quadrumvirate of the original Lucasfilm Games, er, games, just because they still manage to amaze me after 30 years.

Elite is sort of available for Modern macs. At least Frontier makes the game freely available to use with an emulator.

Unfortunately I have had problems running BeebEm on 10.11 and it doesn't look to be updated anytime soon. :crying:
