While I do not get to play many games with the limited free time I have, Steve Jobs just announced that EA Games and ID Games have committed to bringing gaming back to the Mac. Sounds like there will be a lot more info out at E3, but there was quite an impressive lineup ahead from EA.

I believe that this is a huge step forward for the mac, and how people are really making the switch from windows.
