Games Galore at the Apple Store
8:23 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

One of the more frustrating experiences of being a Mac user was not being able to find Macintosh games through retail. Stores like CompUSA stocked a minimal amount of Mac games. When Apple opened its hot, new Apple stores throughout the country, they made a concentraded effort on providing Mac gamers with a healthy supply of Macintosh games. A new article entitled "Paradise Found: Mac Games Galore at the Apple Store" has graced the Apple Games page and provides insight on the bevy of Mac games available the the Apple stores. Here's a snippet from the article:

On any given day, you’ll also find other Mac gamers, many of them searching for that perfect game to take home. No matter what kind of game interests you, you’re sure to find someone to strike up a conversation.

Someone like Vikram Singh Sohal, a recent Mac OS X convert who, like many of his fellow gamers, is excited about playing games on Apple’s next-generation operating system.
“I love OS X because, if the game crashes, it doesn’t take the OS with it,” he says, referring to the protected memory that keeps applications from interfering with each other and forcing you to restart your Mac. An action and strategy fan, Sohal loves Deus Ex and Age of Empires II: Gold Edition and is looking forward to the upcoming Civilization III.

Sohal adds that the selection of games at the Apple retail store is “the best I have seen for Macintoshes anywhere.”

If you have never been to an Apple store and ever wondered what kind of games are available there, then be sure to check out the entire article.
