Gaming has been an important component to the PC and online culture and responsible in many ways for the advancing and development of our computer components and more powerful circuitry. Gaming is one area where Mac/Apple products have been failing miserably until the invention of the Apple store which revolutionized our ideas of online and handheld gaming. Prior to this Apple’s visionary advancement of an online gaming ecosystem for their iPhones and tablets, we relied on game companies like Nintendo and Sony to develop handheld or console games. This is still very much the case but their accessibility and popularity have been curbed by the sheer success of Apple’s marketing platform. The game manufacturers that are still around today now all have online stores built into their consoles that make new downloadable games and content available to you. One area where games feel strongly against Apple and Mac products is the fact that PC operating systems have blown us away since the 2000’s with cutting edge graphics and a wealth of games that could take advantage of these graphics. That’s the main reason why games for Apple tend to have very poor graphics in comparison with their PC rivals.
