Gamer + Old iMac = BULLSHIT

Hey, Everyone!

As you might know, I love to play games. I’ve been an avid gamer since I was a kid.

Lately, I’ve been feeling frustrated as hell because most of my favourites games don’t work on my computer anymore.

I have an iMac:

iMac (27-inch, Mid 2011)

Processor: 3.1 GHz Intel Core i5

Memory: 12 GB 

Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1024 MB

Yes, it is old.

And yes, I’m a gamer, and I own an iMac.

I’m aware that the iMac computer is not the best and most appropriate to play games. My husband owns a PC, and he is always reminding about it! LOL

But I love my iMac. I’ve been using Apple computers for 15 years. I love its system. It’s practical. It’s easy, and it still works!

Besides, I don’t have the money to buy a new iMac or PC. Not at the moment, anyway.

BUT, I’m angry, frustrated and sad at the same time.

Some of my favourite games like World of Warcraft, The Sims 4 and Elder Scrolls Online stopped working due to a lot of reasons. But to explain them in simple words: my computer is old, the processor and graphics card are too old and the games that I mentioned before, require better and newer.

The Sims 4 upgraded its minimum system requirements a couple of weeks ago. EA left us, gamers who own an older computer, with the “Legacy Edition”, which, in my humble opinion, IS A COMPLETELY BULLSHIT.

In this Legacy Edition, there is no online gallery anymore. The last released expansion pack, University, doesn’t work. The packs that were released before University still work, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that I won’t be able to play University and the next packs that are still coming.

Besides, I lost all my saved games.

I got really frustrated because I spent a considerable amount of money with The Sims 4. I bought ALL the packs, and now, I was left with a “lite edition” of the game.

I understand that gaming companies are trying to provide the best experience to the players. I also know that I’m part of the minority who are gamers and own iMac. 

That’s why I decided to give up on Apple computers once and for all. I’m going to buy a PC as soon as I have enough money because I really miss playing my games.

Good thing that I’ve been crazy busy writing my Wattpad stories lately! LOL

Anyway, have a great Tuesday and I’ll see you soon!
