Re: games that are better on a Macintosh

Pegasus Prime is listed but it's a remake and really has nothing in comparison to the original game and ironically the PC release (on steam) is the better version due to content being re-added that was omitted from the mac release.

1982 AMC Eagle wagon This is nice, the SX/4 would be awesome. Do all of these have the select drive? How do you find it?
