Someone like Vikram Singh Sohal, a recent Mac OS X convert who, like many of his fellow gamers, is excited about playing games on Apples next-generation operating system.
The selection of games is the best I have seen for Macs anywhere.- Vikram Sohal, customer
I love OS X because, if the game crashes, it doesnt 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 games like Age of Empires III and Heroes of Might and Magic V.
Sohal adds that the selection of games at the Apple Retail Store is the best I have seen for Macintoshes anywhere.
More for kids
Looking for games for your kids? Then head over to the Kids area. Children of all ages are welcome to sit on cushy beanbag chairs and play games and educational titles on iMac computers.
The Kids section boasts a massive selection of Mac childrens games and software, including Disney Interactive titles.
Mac OS X equals speed
Many of the games offered in the Apple Retail Store are ready for Apples most advanced operating system, Mac OS X.
In fact, first-time gamer Andrew Lucas was clutching a Mac OS X game when we bumped into him in on of the software aisles of the store. A software engineer, Lucas is another fan of Mac OS X, which his company uses extensively.
We were so pleased with the way [our adoption of Mac OS X] was going, he relates, I thought I would buy a game for it.
He adds Ive been very impressed with the speed of OS X.
