Mac Games Year in Review
3:37 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

IMG Editor-in-Chief Tuncer Deniz has come out of hibernation and written an article looking back at the year in Macintosh games. The piece takes a look at companies such as Apple, Aspyr, MacSoft, MacPlay and how they fared for the year. Here's a little snippet:

This year was a fantastic year for Macintosh games. Although the majority of Mac titles were released toward the end of the year, the quantity and quality of titles released were fantastic. With timely releases of games like Diablo II, Deus Ex, Star Trek: Elite Force, and The Sims, the Mac games market was relatively healthy.



Is everything perfect though? Nope not by a long shot. Macintosh game sales still languish by a huge margin behind the Wintel platform. In order to entice developers to bring more titles to the Mac, unit sales need to increase dramatically.
The IMG chief also offers some off-the-all predictions for 2001 toward the end of the article. Be sure to check it out!
