Gaming on Apple platforms is much different than Linux and Windows.


All told, playing historical games on the Mac is a complicated affair due to waves of deprecation. PowerPC gave way to Intel, Intel Macs moved from 32-bit to 64-bit, and most recently, Apple moved the Mac from Intel to Apple Silicon with the M1 chip and its successors.

This is good for Apple, but creates a lot of eWaste. So many working yet practically unusable computers.
