Though Windows still has most of the gaming market share, times are a-changing. AAA games from top-notch studios can now be played on Mac natively, and many newer games are now being created with Mac playability in mind from the start. Want to get started? Here are some of the best RPG experiences you can have natively on Mac right now. Human Revolution Available on: App Store , Steam. The first Deus Ex released back in broke new ground with its character building systems, non-linear gameplay, and freedom of choice.
No two playthroughs of the game were exactly the same, which gave it tons of replay value and earned it critical acclaim. Bastion is, in a word, beautiful. Not only is it visually striking and immediately recognizable as unique, but everything is elevated to a completely different level by the soundtrack.
The music is so good that we recommend listening to it while studying or relaxing! Like reading a novel or watching a movie, Bastion is more about the emotional journey than it is about mechanical depth. Borderlands 2 Available on: Borderlands 2 is, without a doubt, one of the best games to come out in the past five years. In singleplayer, you go around completing missions and collecting loot from the enemies you kill.
Multiplayer is basically co-op singleplayer with your friends. Pillars of Eternity Available on: Torchlight II Available on: Original Sin Available on: If your love of the RPG genre stems from a desire to explore and discover, then Divinity: Original Sin will be right up your alley.
The graphics and combat are great, but the content is the real selling point. With all of the side quests included, it could take you well over hours to complete everything. Darkest Dungeon Available on: Darkest Dungeon is simply incredible. The art style sucks you right in, then the gameplay hooks you and keeps you engaged for hours and hours. You choose what you want to do in the game: The way you interact with others in the game has real impact on the world at large.
The biggest reason to get Warband over the original is the addition of multiplayer. There are seven different game modes that you can play with up to 64 players and bots. Modes include deathmatch, team deathmatch, conquest, capture the flag, siege, fight and destroy, and straight-up battle. Rogue Legacy Available on: Legend of Grimrock II Available on: Legend of Grimrock was a spiritual successor to the cult classic dungeon crawler Dungeon Master, and many consider it to be the title that revived the classic dungeon crawler genre by faithfully combining old-school gameplay with modern graphics.
Legend of Grimrock II expands on its predecessor with a bigger world, better character development, higher level of challenge, and improved freedom of progression. The former is more work but also more reliable in the end. One more thing to note: Are there any other quality RPGs we missed that can be played directly on Mac? Which modern RPGs do you consider to be your favorites?
