my mac specs are in the sig. i upgraded the graphics card, so i can play some games on my mac, downloaded some demos to see what's out there. most of these games run too fast. like THPS4, and some driving games.

Try getting SimCity 4; after your city grows a bit, that will fix your problem
I do not like those green links and spam.

what do you mean by too fast? is the game literally speeding up?

i have Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4 demo and the guy skates just too fast to be able to do any tricks and see what's going on. it's impossible to land, cause he spins too fast and it's hard to line up. most of the driving games - the same story, the car is going too fast, it's like the whole thing is accelerated 1.5 times.

I think you are too old and are remembering the olden days of gaming. Today's games are fast paced.

If you are not an old may and your computer is SUPERHUMAN, then I'm sorry form my assumption. I honestly didn't know a Mac could be too fast for gaming!

He should be right because I honestly didn't think something like this would ever be posted here.
