    a bunch of them work if you get some windows emulator...but having a dedicated Mac client I dont think many have other than WoW.

     

    I mean lets face it, there arent that many "big" mmo's to begin wih. Rift I know doesnt have mac stuff. EVE I have no idea, same with aion...what else is there?

    I'm a big fan of macs, own two, and I purchased a pc to play games.

    Other than that, I think EVE has a version for mac. I think Ryzom at some point was made playable on a mac.

    WoW is the only one I can think with a dedicated Mac client.  Your best bet is getting an emulator.  I know of Bootcamp.  There are others as well.  An emulator will most likely require you to have or purchase a Windows license.  You can also try Crossover which does not require a Windows license.  However, I am not really that familar with crossover and gaming, I have only used it to run IE and some other basic Windows apps.  Crossover is similar to Wine used for Linux. 

     

    EDIT:  Yes Sovrath is correct.  Eve has a mac client.  So try Eve (which you should play anyways b/c it's awesome).

    A friend of mine played Lord of the Rings on bootcamp and said it worked very well.

    If you're looking for Mac exclussives, Oberin seems to be the only one that I'm aware of - Clan Lord used to be Mac only.

    Other than that, nothing new really.

    Perpetuum is currently the highest rated game playable on Mac.

    I own a mac as well and I play MMOs on it too. However, I use bootcamp. Bootcamp is NOT an emulator. Bootcamp actually creates a partition on your computer that allows you to install windows on your computer just like you would on any other and run just as well. I have had no problems with it. As long as you own a disc of the windows operating system, you can install windows and play any mmo on your computer.
