What Tepid said. The state of Mac gaming is pretty farking piss poor. Most of the big games are about 5 years old or more.

Most tend to be Cider ports.

Last time I checked, cider was worse than Wine even despite it's pay to play model.

I used both, but games like WoW ran 2-3x better under wine using directx libraries than it did using opengl through cedega.

Perhaps Rockstar thought cousin Roman's constant whinging to Niko on the phone meant that GTA:IV wasn't worth porting.

Also, what Tepid said.

I bought it as it's one of my favourite all time games.

...but it appears locked at 640 x 480 resolution (the in-game video option is greyed out) :( I ran it in higher resolution a decade ago on my windows machine.

All of those commercial Wine forks are based on ancient Wine code. At this point the official Wine is faster and more compatible than them.

Just checked and the link doesn't load iTunes - it loads the App Store (despite having "itunes" in the url).
