Best Fantasy Games for Mac

Ever since I was a kid I wanted to own a longsword and cast fireballs at goblins. Today, my wife won’t let me buy that authentic medieval Zweihänder from Amazon and the only spell I know is a vanishing spell that I can only cast on my paychecks. 

Thankfully, fantasy in the digital realm of gaming comes a lot closer to (and often goes beyond) my childhood dreams. Games are the perfect medium for fantasy and there are so many great titles in this genre that you can experience pretty much any scenario you’ve imagined as a kid. Want to be a brave and bold orc-slaying knight or a cunning rogue, or maybe a brave and bold knight-slaying orc? You’ll surely find what you want and more within the titles included in this category.

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings plonks you into the grimy boots of a growly-voiced, white-haired monster hunter called Geralt of Rivia. Geralt isn’t exactly your generic selfless RPG protagonist and he’s not about to quest for ancient artifacts or have a scrap with unnameable horrors from Slavic mythology unless there’s coin (or cleavage) at stake. It’s this gritty, morally ambiguous world that sets this game apart from your ho-hum fantasy fare.

    But what about the gameplay? The real-time combat in The Witcher 2 is a lot of fun – you must juggle swordplay, dodging, and hurling magic spells faster than a drunk trying to catch a greased pig. It’s challenging and requires more thought than just mashing buttons – you actually need to learn when it’s time to attack and when you should back off and let the monster hit air for a couple of seconds. It’s a very satisfying combat system once you get the hang of it.
