I’ve recently wanted to check out the different games that Blizzard Entertainment has to offer, especially their newest title, Overwatch. Does anyone play Overwatch on their Mac? If so, do you have any difficulties keeping up with everything, or is lag an issue at all? Or is my iMac a solid enough choice so that I can enjoy the competitive aspect of the game?

I wouldn't advise using a Mac for Overwatch. Better stick to a console or a gaming-specific PC.

Big question is if you still need Bootcamp, Parallels, or other windoze emulator, and if your iMac has at least these specs:

Windows 7/8.1/10
Intel Core i3 processor
Nvidia GeForce GTX 460/Radeon HD 4850/Intel HD Graphics 4400
4GB RAM
30GB storage space

I haven't launched Steam in a while, maybe it's finally there.

I tried to download and play, but there were some problems (I don't remember exactly which ones). Later I installed the windows emulator and it became much better.
