Dead Man, right now, I'm typing this on my 15-inch Macbook Pro. I'm running an i7 quad-core processor clocked at 2.0ghz. I've got a 500gb hard drive, with 100gb partitioned and running Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate, using Boot Camp Utility. I'm running a decent system, but it's not a gaming rig by any means, yet it still can play a large portion of recent PC games on the market, as well as recent Mac games. I can almost guarantee that I know more about Mac than you do at any time (and that has nothing to do with my job, though it has a little to do with it).
Basically, I've got a ton of knowledge in my head about Mac that's been beaten in there because I've been trained to know it, but I also know a ton because of personal experience. I love Mac computers, and I'm not arguing that Macs are bad machines.
What I am instead saying is that you're completely incorrect about Macs having no good games.
If you were saying this ten years ago, when I was saying the exact same thing on this very site (remember that, guys?), then I'd be inclined to agree with you. But I can hop over to Spotlight Search and type in "The Binding of Isaac" or "Crusader Kings II," and suddenly, I'm in a game. This is a vastly different landscape for the Mac than it was ten, or even five, years ago.
You see, previously (prior to 2006), the Mac didn't have Intel-based processors in them. Prior to that, Macs were built in with the PowerPC architecture, which was not built for gaming. Like, at all. Not only that, but the Mac's low market penetration made it seem that games wouldn't sell, and so games weren't often made for the Mac. That's not the case anymore. If I open the Mac App Store, I can find a number of great games, from old to new. If I go to sites that also feature digital distribution, including Steam, I find an expanding game selection for the Mac.
All of which is to say, regardless of how good this game may turn out to be, there are a ton of good games on the Mac.

You were telling him about Buddha, you were telling him about Mohammed in the same breath. You never mentioned one time the Man who came and died a criminal’s death...
