Mac, no. Linux, maybe.

Well, I believe there is software that will run PC games on a Mac, but I'm not familiar with it.

First off, Games for Windows...on a Mac? Tell me what's wrong...For Windows...Mac...err, no.

For Linux, they work, but don't expect full stability. Trust me, It's frustrating at times.
