I hear you. I have a far from AAA-capable system. But, hot dang, I was impressed by Unreal back in the day. (When was that, '98? And the original Tomb Raider with a 3dfx card was the shizzle).
Still rocking my 2011 iMac for gaming. And it won't be replaced until it dies, or until my kids are older and Apple has released an xMac. Still have about a hundred games on my to play list which can happily run on the machine, so I can live without Mad Max and whatever is released from now on. I don't need the latest AAA games, as there are other things in life taking my attention by now.

Got another question lined up:

What macOS game has the most incredible graphics?

Give us your answers, along with a couple of examples of the bits that leave you breathless. :)
I am not sure I have played a game made after 2015, so I will have to pass on this one.. :/

MGS is also quite bad in that respect. Would it really be so hard to write "Get everything in the regular edition (Link), but also the following: blahblah".

Just finished SteamWorld Dig. Took me 5:01 hours, with almost 100% done and found.

If you are looking for a simple, yet somewhat challeging game, oosing with charm, then this is the one you go for.

You play a robot who arrives in a small town in a desert, looking for his uncle. You start digging below the city, and find all kinds of wonders! Armed with only a pickaxe, you have to work your way through minor puzzles, easy enemies, and dig to find gems and other treasures. Along the way you’ll get various upgrades and other stuff.

Graphics are really well done, cute, bot not too cutesy, and really fits the world. It is oosing with charm! Gameplay is great, with an emphasis on platforming and minor puzzle solving. Game is quick to load, and easy to learn. Story is not the important part here, but it does the trick.

5/5 highly recommended! I really get why it got so much focus back when it was released.
