Are all video games supported on Mac computers?

I am deciding on what type of new computer i want to get. I have an old Dell dimension computer and i want to switch to a iMac. I have a few games that i want to keep playing on my new computer, but im not sure if the iMac will let me play them. I have messed around with mac's before and i like them, and i want to be able to use the cool features that the mac has. Can anyone give me some help and advice on this.

    Obviously, they're not going to play anything from a game console (i.e. PS3, Wii, XB360), but otherwise, yeah. Most games are sadly Windows-exclusive, but it's pretty trivial to install Windows on a modern (Intel-based) Mac; all you need is the Windows installer CD/DVD and the Boot Camp utility that's included on the Mac. Then you can reboot into Windows when you want a gaming fix, and switch back over to OS X to get the real stuff done. :P If gaming is a priority for you, just make sure the Mac you buy has powerful enough graphics hardware.

    not all PC games are coded for a Mac...especially anything made/produced by Microsoft....but there are ways around it....look in a virtual computer on your current system to emulate a different OS
