Adams' Apple on State of Mac Gaming
2:00 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Mark and Suellen Adams of Westlake Interactive have submitted another installment of their column, entitled Adams' Apple, to MacCentral. In this installment they discuss the current state of Mac gaming, and the significant changes in the Mac gaming market that have occurred recently. Most prominent among those changes was a renewed enthusiasm for Mac gaming, as evinced by the big-name titles that were selling extremely well at last month's Macworld Expo New York, the columnists note:

Another positive trend in the Mac game market is the increase in the number of games that are coming to the Mac. Three years ago when Westlake Interactive was founded, people at Macworld Expo in San Francisco were seriously worried about the lack of game presence at the show. Just look back a few weeks to Macworld New York 2000 to see how that has changed: Baldur's Gate, The Sims, Diablo 2, and Deus Ex, all fresh from the duplicators, were shipping at show time and selling well. There was a selection of casual games like Scrabble and Asteroids as well.
No one knows the Mac gaming market quite like Westlake, the team which has brought the majority of blockbuster games to the Mac OS (Unreal, Unreal Tournament, The Sims, the Tomb Raider series, Alpha Centauri - the list goes on) and will most likely continue do to so in the future. For more of their thoughts on Mac gaming and the direction of the market, read the rest of this column.
