MacGamer Talks with Bill Heineman
10:35 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

The Gaming Den at talks this week with "Burger" Bill Heineman, one of the giants of Mac game development. Or rather, Heineman talks - in the refreshingly forthright manner for which he is respected - and The Gaming Den listens.

Here's a brief sample of Heineman's opinions of 11 Mac games:


This is my all time favorite twitch game. I actually bought a Robotron 2084 machine so I can play it in my spare time. The sheer amount of destruction was able to satisfy my need for explosions.

Quake 3 Arena

I didn't really like this game. I preferred the single player game of Quake 2 or SiN Gold. The deathmatch factor for me is just getting boring. I want to play something with puzzles and more challenges instead of kill kill kill.

Myth III: The Wolf Age

An honorable prequel to the Myth saga. It's amazing how the game can take the play mechanics of the original and put it into a true 3D view. My son plays Myth III all the time. Sometimes I worry about him.

Head over to MacGamer for more of Burger Bill's wit and wisdom.
