I say this because macs have crap horsepower and most of the great games id like to play are legacy or retro and windows only. Anyone recommend any cheap and indy rpgs that play on mac? and most of the ones is ee on sale are also available on ipad anyway like gog had a greats ale for icewind dale but i want to get that game on my ipad with its much larger battery life instead and not have to carry mouse with me. Speaking of which, they really should port thr first pillars of eternity and some of the legacy divinite games like divine and beyond to the pad.
Hmmm … out of my 750 or so games on Steam, I have just over 350 Mac games. Sure there are plenty of non-RPG games - I love shooters and strategy and others as well. But there are plenty of RPG as well.

However, if you are not using an easily cross-platform engine, co-developing is expensive and there needs to be a viable path to ROI. So I understand why many games never get to the Mac. But it seems more and more that we DO get cross platform releases.
