Since writing my article on Mac gaming a while back I have been thinking about the coverage of Mac and Linux games on mainstream ‘PC’ gaming sites and magazines. I am thinking about places like PC Gamer (the magazine and the website) and Rock, Paper, Shotgun along with The Reticule.
The way I see things the term ‘PC’ theoretically covers any personal computer which runs on Windows, Linux or Mac OSX. Why shouldn’t magazines and websites that cover PC games take a closer look at how games run on non-Windows platforms, why shouldn’t they look at the minority of games which are released only for Mac OSX? With Steam now selling Mac titles and many indie developers releasing their games for all three operating systems I think the time is now for places which cover PC games to start taking a bit more time to look at what is happening in our Linux and Mac cousins worlds.
Just take a moment to think about it, PC Gamer and RPS covering Mac and Linux games, what harm could it do? Surely it will simply make people appreciate that there is more out there that Windows based PC gaming. This is nicely tucked away, let’s check the contextual page rank for web design cardiff.
