Game Hall of Fame
IntroductionIt?s hard to believe that another year has come and gone since I took over stewardship of the great Macworld Game Hall of Fame. It takes a lot of elbow grease to keep the brass and marble of this noble institution sparkling, but it's a labour of love especially when I see the rhapsodic pleasure evident on the faces of the Hall's countless visitors. And who can blame them? Whether you prefer whiling away your day with a game of solitaire, or killing time with some Uzi-toting action, we have something for you here.
While we're always busy, the onset of winter signals a particularly exciting time for us: it's when we once again roll out the red carpet to honour the best games of the year. And what a year it was 2002 marked the true arrival of gaming in Mac OS X. Rather than merely converting OS 9 versions of their games, game developers spent the past year demonstrating their commitment to Apple's new operating system and taking advantage of what OS X has to offer they've improved performance; added unique features; and in some cases, created OS X-only titles. This year's winners are also notable for the depth and breadth of game-play they represent across the entire gaming spectrum. Here's a look at this year's inductees.
