Mac Game of the Year at Gamecenter
8:30 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Game of the Year awards are being "handed out" all over the web these days, and Gamecenter was one of the few (if not the only) web site to include their pick for Macintosh Game of the Year. The nominees for the award are Deus Ex, Quake III: Arena, The Sims, and Unreal Tournament. Here is what Gamecenter had to say about the past year in Mac gaming:

The year 2000 was a great one for Mac gamers. An unprecedented number and variety of titles were released, many of them almost concurrently with the PC versions. It was great to have so many games to play, but we've managed to narrow the candidates for Macintosh Game of the Year to four titles. The best indication of the caliber of games released for the Mac are the titles that didn't make this list: Rune, Baldur's Gate, Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.2, and Diablo II are just a few. It was difficult to leave some of those out, but hey, we had to draw the line somewhere.
You'll have to head to Gamecenter to learn who the winner is, of course. Though the Macintosh game market remains small in comparison to the PC game market, we had tons of great games to play due to the efforts of Aspyr Media, MacPlay and MacSoft, to name a few. Many of the games they brought to the Macintosh were winners of awards in their respective categories on the PC. So, what would you nominate as your Mac game of the year? Sound off in our forums!
