The Apple Mac, originally known as the Macintosh is a vast line of computers manufactured and retailed by Apple Inc. The initial release of the first Mac was on January 24, 1984, followed by one of its biggest retail competitors, Microsoft Windows in 1985. Macs currently run on their own software, Mac OS. Despite being partly related to the PC family, the Mac has not been such a largely traditional platform for Grand Theft Auto games yet the game play is rather smooth with no significant differences to the PC. As it is the newest platform to serve GTA games, slight alterations were made from the PC port in order to suit the Mac’s key commands and operating system.

Description

Due to majority of people owning PC's over the Macs, or generally the PC being more well known, Rockstar and Take Two did not really focus on this platform as much, though did generously decide to release a Mac version of the trilogy, featuring three GTA classics on one disc. Unlike the PC version, there is less community mod support for the Mac due to lack of interests. One has to normally resort to installing Windows on a Mac (through Boot Camp, Parallels or Fusion), or use a compatibility layer such as CrossOver Mac to open or edit such files.
