Can You Game on a MacBook?

19252 ratings | 1299188 views
A Mac isn't exactly a gaming PC but can you game at all on a MacBook? Is the 2015 MacBook Pro 13" Worth It? http://youtu.be/MA3dJQU4J2M Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/austinevans Last year I tested whether a Mac Pro was remotely usable as a gaming PC to see how far games on OS X have come but this around I used a MacBook Pro 13" running OS X 10.10 Yosemite with Steam running games like Minecraft, League of Legends, Tomb Raider, Borderlands and more. I also load up Windows 10 using Boot Camp and test the Windows vs Mac gaming performance in games like Grand Theft Auto 5 and Shadow of Mordor.

To game, simply dual boot windows 10 via boot camp, and it should run flawlessly

I think what sucks is you are paying more than $1000+ For a computer and it can’t game. Like I know it’s good for business and regular use and career use, but it should also game! I mean come on you’re paying a ridiculous amount and the computer can’t even stand games. My opinion is that if you are paying THAT MUCH for a computer than it better allow any hardcore gamer to play games because sure as hell thats a bunch of money you pay and it can’t even stand much games as a PC can. :/

GeForce now also works with many games, i use it when I can’t use my pc

If it’s a newer, say 2017, and you use bootcamp to get windows, then it could be a playable experience

Can someone help me with something???? If I download windows on my Mac Pro, can I play steam window games?

Macs are more made for business, school, and media arts (Graphic designs, photo editing, movie editing, and animation). PCs will always be for gaming, unless Apple decides to release computers that are suitable for gaming

I have a Mac but I prefer windows WAYYYYY better . I usually use my Mac for editing and other stuff , for gaming I preferably prefer WINDOWS. But, they’re both good tech , why so much hate towards what better and what isn’t . I also have PSN- Legendsneverdy24. Let’s play some fortnite lol .

The fuzzy textures are due to some of the graphics options being turned off. On my laptop I do the same thing (Windows 10), and I get the same results.
