that sad life when im going to school for game design and im forced to learn to be an advertiser and never do anything coloring, animating, lighting related but ONLY typography.

and even though they all say to use macs, my teachers are smart and upload everything on dropbox. and im the only person not using a mac book.

Although I agree that finding a job in games indrustry or being successful as an indie is very hard.
Bashing someone for wanting to do something for they love is retarded, I would rather live in a 2 room apartment, making barely enough money to subtain myself but doing something I love, than work 8-4 shift someplace I hate with every fabric of my being.

Who knows, maybe he will be successful.
Maybe not.
But bashing him is ******* pointless.

That's not true of any field. Especially if you go to the right school. 60% employment for graduates in their studied field is considered quite bad. 20% is just unheard of.

It's a metaphor that is often used. Calling someone a sheep implies that they just "follow the herd" rather than thinking for themselves. In this case, it refers to people buying Apple products because their friends have them etc.

Yah you can make a frankentosh fairly simply from my understanding. Just need a program such as VMware fusion or another virtual desktop. Or there have been people who have gotten OSX to run as the main OS on a PC, don't know why you would considering their OS is the worst part, but its possible.

Desktop for gaming, ASUS G73SW for gaming and school.
Sure, the G73 is getting pretty old by today's gaming standards, but I'd rather pay a fair price for a reliable product than overprice for a reliable, limiting product.

I have yet to see a Mac do anything a PC can't do on the same level or better. I'm sure it's a lot more intuitive in its design, but I see no logical reason to get one other than that.

I don't hate you Mac users, I just don't get you.

heh, i find it funny that people in gamedesign have to use apples..

they get to develop games they can't play..
User avatar #200 to #199 - joshlol (05/16/2013) [-]
They only do artwork though, I'm a games developer and I use PC. The reason artists use Mac is because the IPS screens are a lot better than the typical TN panels you get with most PC's, though anyone can buy an IPS monitor and use for a windows based PC, I do this personally so it annoys me when people claim you that mac holds anything over PC in terms on graphic design.

I'm not hating on Apple though, I use a MacBook Pro and it's easily better than any windows based laptop I have used.
User avatar #216 to #200 - nogphille (05/16/2013) [-]
actually, no.
i only know females who study gamedesign here.. so i'm basing this off a select studygroup.. but all the ones i know, don't have a secondary computer on which they play games. they do however play facebookgames and lousy crap like that.

i however really enjoy some of the features OSX has and have modded my win8 to have some of those features.. i also have a nice linux distro AND OSX on tripleboot?(unsure whether the naming is correct )

and i have to agree, some of the parts of macs are above the average PCs you find..
you just have to know what you purchase..
like whether your PC is compatible with hackintosh.. whether all components are worth their value etc.

the only reason for not buying anything mac related, is the name they've made for themselves by sueing EVERYONE for frivolous reasons, while most of their products are partial or complete clones of other products.
User avatar #220 to #216 - joshlol (05/16/2013) [-]
When you say "Game design" that usually implies artwork, but sorry if I'm misunderstanding. Writing out the code we usually call it games development.

Personally if I really liked a product, I wouldn't let factors like whether or not the company sues people influence me purchasing said product. But to each his own, many products are "clones" of others now though, I've seen many laptops that mimic the macbook style, and fair play it's what people like. That is just business.
User avatar #225 to #220 - nogphille (05/16/2013) [-]
we don't have game development at my school
that would've been an awesome class.

I never had it at school either. It's probably less fun than it sounds, a lot of it is just frantically working out why your code isn't working haha.
User avatar #233 to #230 - nogphille (05/16/2013) [-]

User avatar #251 to #245 - taintedangel (05/16/2013) [-]
You have to set up a virtual machine on a Mac OS in order to use Microsoft Visual studio (one of the main tools for making the code for a video game), otherwise you can't.
User avatar #318 to #251 - nogphille (05/16/2013) [-]
game design isn't writing code. it's art, concept and modelling.
none of the people i know in design have ever needed to run visual studio.

programming is done in game development.. a choice not included in my school.
User avatar #322 to #318 - taintedangel (05/16/2013) [-]

#337 to #320 - calibratuner (05/18/2013) [-]
Virtual Machine*

And no it is not a virtual machine. Bootcamp is literally running windows natively on a mac whereas paralles is a virtual machine and may/may not game as smoothly.
So yes, you can game on a MAC.

User avatar #215 to #199 - taintedangel (05/16/2013) [-]
Apple is only for the artists who make up the concept art and 2D art in the game design. The 3D modeling, game mechanics, level design, pacing, scripted events, and everything else is done with a PC because PC is better at programming and modeling.
User avatar #236 to #215 - joshlol (05/16/2013) [-]
You are right, but I think all programmers wish there was a version of XCode we could use on windows/linux.
User avatar #240 to #236 - taintedangel (05/16/2013) [-]
True, but as far as operating systems go:
Linux is for the very hardcore programmer who knows what he is doing and being able to write his own console commands.
Windows is for the moderate programmer who knows what he is doing.
Mac is the easy to use for the computer illiterate and those that want to draw pretty pictures.
User avatar #218 to #215 - nogphille (05/16/2013) [-]
programming, sure..
but then you're even better of on linux.

and i know some people in gamedesign who use their macbooks for maia 3d modeling..
so.. i'm not sure...

I'm actually in the game design course (which teaches all but the story writing stuff), and no one has ever used a Mac for that class ever.

i'm studying informatics, there are people in my class who use their macbooks for programming..
it's not impossible.. it's just not optimal.
and well.. everyone i know in gamedesign here in hasselt, belgium, uses a macbook for gamedesign.. they usually don't have a 2nd laptop.. so.. maybe the classes are adjusted so everyone who owns a macbook can follow the classes..
or the class can easily be followed using one.
User avatar #238 to #199 - heartlessrobot (05/16/2013) [-]
Considering you can have a Mac run Unix, Windows, and OS, they probably could play them. If they were good with computers. Which most Mac users aren't. Which is why they bought a Mac.

Never owned one, because what experience I have with those I've putzed around with has all been terrible. Plus, "user preference" doesn't justify a multi-thousand-dollar price gap between a given PC and the stats-comparable Mac. If it's not Alienware, it has no business whatsoever retailing for $3,000.

No one (of moderate intelligence) is saying that Macs are **** . The point is that the amount of money you have to pay for a Mac is not proportional to the specifications and overall performance of the computer when compared to PCs, which is a non-biased statement. If money is not an issue, it just boils down to preference of operating system. It is a bit of a downside that Macs don't run .exe files though.
#279 to #267 - calibratuner (05/16/2013) [-]

Ive used XP for close to a decade and then finally made the switch to 7.
Took me about 4 hours to get comfortable with it.

Last year I got a Macbook (for developing & general web browsing), I have never used MAC OSX peviously, but it took me less than 1 hour to get comfortable with it.

User friendliness, check.

Expensive = made out of aluminum, glass and generally latest tech.
Battery life will rape anything running Windows. You can finish watching 2-3 full lenght movies, while browsing the net on full brightness, whereas with a Windows laptop you'd be lucky to finish watching the first half.

Average Windows Laptop of Standard Quality; about $460 at Sale price ($600 Standard Pricing)

Macbook Pro Laptop of Similar Stats; About $1080 at Sale Price ($1800 at standard price)

Stock price of glass and aluminum doesn't amount to those numbers either (not that the materials are any special other than pure aesthetics), and they still request you have a case if you want insurance with their product.

Battery Life, though not mentioned on the Windows Laptop's page, reports to be great by numerous reviews, so there goes the "rape anything running windows"

I don't like to roll with fanatical Anti-Apple crew that's manifested with this site, but it's inaccurate statements like these that remind people why there's an anti-apple grouping in general.

My laptop has the same specs as your precious mac (i7, 8 GB Ram, mid end NVidea graphics), is made out of magnesium (magnesium > aluminum for strength) has 3 year all in service (hell I tossed my last one on the ground 4 times, it wasn't even dead and they still gave me a new one), battery life of about 9 hours and it costs "only" 1200 euro's where an equivalent mac costs about 1500 plus mine is more user serviceable and has twin SSD's (for a total of 384 Gigabyte).

You can like your mac but saying it's superior to any Windows pc is just wrong, maybe to some obscure Acer or something but those Acers cost 1/3 at max so that ain't a fair comparison.

Not very user friendly? Are you ******* kidding me? They're specifically designed to be user friendly, so even older people can use it.

Even for more complex tasks Mac OS X is equipped better than Windows, because thanks to BSD core it shares very important tool with Linux - console. Windows PowerShell is fine, but it has **** on any decent console implementation. As occassional Linux user, I find a lot of things easier to do with console than with GUI, because it takes considerably less time.

This debate shouldn't even exist. It should be 'Windows vs OSX' You know why?

OBVIOUSLY Macs are a stupid choice. They're basically PC's with OSX that have a ridiculous price-stamp. Anyone who says they're worth the price is moronic.

If you say "Oh I like the interface that's why I buy it!" or some other **** like that saying OSX has better things than PC's. Well then buy a PC and put OSX on it. It's not rocket science and you'll be able to afford at least twice as much as you could buying a mac.

TL;DR There is no competition in Macs vs PC's. In Windows vs OSX there will be valid debates.

I am sorry bud, i am a windows technician and i can tell you that is ******** .

Macs cost more due to the environment.

Windows is a universal platform, drivers are made for hundreds of different systems, and THEN have to be compatible with hundred(s) other parts! Oh, and cannot forget they also are made for 3 different operating systems(counting only the consumer market) (hence cost=competitiveness)

Macs on the complete opposite side have a very limited selection of parts used, hence the stability. Drivers are made with SPECIFIC components in mind, hence the reason why the drivers work much better than in the windows environment.

DO a little research before you spout a load of nonsense.


On the flipside, i dont care that windows crashes too often, because i prefer the layout, i prefer cheaper parts, and i prefer the ease of repair(considering i can fix or at least diagnose problems with windows extremely quickly. I am still using windows 7 because it is an excellent operating system, my problems atm are due to a very aging computer because i cannot afford a new machine.
Socket 939 dual-core athlon with 3GB of DDR(Yes ddr).

Oh and please do not start flaming, i am only trying to inform.

You're informing badly...

First off 'windows-technician' Windows is software, not hardware. Technician is not the proper job-title name for someone who works with software. I already know you're pulling this out of your ass.

Oh and just to make sure you don't fight back on that here's the webster dictionary definition of technician:

A person employed to look after technical equipment or do practical work in a laboratory.
An expert in the practical application of a science.

Neither of those are someone who works with windows. Anyways moving on from that.

Macs do require specific hardware, however that hardware is much cheaper than it's advertised. You could build an actual mac today for less than half the cost using the exact same parts. I never said I preferred either, I just said the debate is NOT Mac Vs PC it's OSX vs Windows. I like Windows myself, though some people prefer OSX for whatever reason.

I repeat the debate is NOT PC Vs Mac. Macs are overpriced due to the average consumer not being smart enough to research before they purchase. They take whatever money they can from the consumer. They only sell from one brandname which is apple.

The only possible debate is OSX vs Windows. Not Mac vs PC. That's all I was ever trying to say and sorry if you misread that.

Windows-Technician as i call it,

I am a qualified PC technician, yet have no care to work on MACS, perhaps i should have stated this in my post, i concur i was wrong in how i iterated that. I work on all, yet prefer windows because i am most knowledgeable in that area. I know enough about macs do fix them generally, but not enough to call my self properly capable in my eyes.

And when i say technician, i mean i am employed to fix computers, and self-employed to fix computers. I have generally had no complaints from my services and a 95+% success rate in diagnosing and fixing machines.

Do go back and notice how i said the "environment" as it plays a large role on my arguement.
#338 to #332 - calibratuner (05/18/2013) [-]
I do appreciate that you think i am talking out of my ass,

however you can stop belittling me when i am a qualified technician, hardware AND software.

Unless you have been living under a rock, macs are INHERENTLY more stable than a large portion of windows machines for the very reasons i described above, i see it say in and day out. I KNOW exactly what i am talking about.

I say Windows-Technician because i do not care to understand the MAC operating system, i can easily work on the internals of a mac and generally diagnose a problem with a mac's hardware fairly simply.

There is no arguement that a MAC operating system is more stable than a windows operating system.

OS X Operating system is designed around a limited amount of components, windows is not, and is designed to work with numerous components. Drivers for said parts are coded and designed for said software, and continuously have to updated to work with other components. Whereas there may be some hiccups with a mac, there is not the same issues as there is with windows a portion for the time.

I am not saying a windows machine is unstable, i am saying a mac OS is more stable.

Why do you think it is good practice to make a system restore before updating your machine? Because drivers updated may not be compatible.

And many consumers do not have the patience, nor care to learn to make backups so things will not go wrong.

I never said MAC components are worth the price. However the hardware plays a large role when the operating system makes use of a limited party.

100% agree, and I've been arguing that for a while. OSX is a decent operating system, but Macs are not good computers, they are completely overpriced and really don't have any redeeming factors. I'd gladly dual-boot windows and OSX if I ever end up getting a second hard drive.

I must admit, ubuntu has caught my eye with it's stability compared to the windows platform.

Am I the only one who never brings their laptop to lecture?

you have to bring a laptop at my university
they give you one though, so it's okay
User avatar #10 to #9 - awildniglet (05/16/2013) [-]
They give you one? Dayum. Either those must be some crappy laptops or your school is well funded
User avatar #69 to #10 - yunablade (05/16/2013) [-]
The colleges that give them to you actually just "lend" them.

If you **** them up they will overcharge your ass..

I Had my own personal laptop when in college, but never bought it to class. Had I done that I would surely would have come out of college as an ass clown for wasting time in it.

Oh gotcha. My high school had those, my uni only has computer labs though
