Samurai Mech I & II, the major Japanese-developed Mac games. Some of the developers later formed Genius Sonority (mainly the games' designer/director), and IIRC the games' fansite had an interview with a developer claiming a Western company wanted to localize these around 1992/1993...so likely Maxis (they'd already brought over Artdink's A-Train).

Emulation status seems good, but then you have to find the games, deal with copy protection, and hope for the best. The fansite, which went down a year or so ago and had robot.txt preventing Internet Archive from letting you access it, had an e-mail procedure for obtaining keys...oh well.

Apple did officially license System 7 out to PowerPC clone makers for a couple of years in the mid-90s, in a misguided effort to chase Microsoft in the market share game, and the cheaper clones cannibalized Apple's profitable high-end Macs much like IBM-compatible clones did the IBM PC in the 80s.

95% of Windows users never upgrade their PCs either, especially since most everyone under 60 is now using ultraslim laptops with SSDs modeled after (i.e. ripped off from) contemporary MacBooks.

The only people who care about upgrading their PCs anymore are gamers and amateur Bitcoin miners.

For everyone else, computers have been "good enough" for the past decade to play videos, listen to music, edit photos, browse the web, play some light casual games, and write emails, documents, and spreadsheets.

The only time people feel the need to ditch their current PC is when they've been utterly infested with Windows bloatware, adware, spyware, and straight-up malware. It has nothing to do with upgradeability.

To be fair this was mostly true of the 90s when computer technology moved really fast, but in the 80s things didn't move so quickly.

That screenshot must be from the 1998 remaster of X-wing because the star destroyer has textures. That version also ditched the far superior dynamic midi soundtrack for just the movie soundtrack on loop.

The Mac version of X-wing ran at 640x480 both in flight and in the menus, while keeping the midi soundtrack. Making it the best possible version and it's unobtainable on a Windows machine, even with emulation (PearPC isn't fast enough).

TIE Fighter for Windows got the 640x480 gameplay resolution with the midi soundtrack version, but it still has 320x200 menus. More tolerable, also a better game.

Anyone remember a game where you could fly about the screen freely, and you had to shoot down enemies of various geometric shapes? (Not Crystal Quest.) The enemies would then explode into gems or money of some sort and you had to grab them before gravity caused them to fall off the bottom. You could then buy upgrades your weapons.

One notable characteristic of the game is it would only run in B&W. So if you were running in thousands of colors, it would give you an error dialog saying to switch to 1-bit mode.

If you're looking for System 1 to 7 or so, check out Mini vMac: http://www.gryphel.com/c/minivmac/
You'll need a ROM to run it.
If you're looking for System 7 to Mac OS 8.5, you'll need Basilisk II: http://basilisk.cebix.net/
Also on Android. You'll need a ROM to use it and install disks. Emulates a 68k processor.
For Mac OS 8.5 to 9.0.4 use Sheepshaver: http://sheepshaver.cebix.net/
You will need a ROM and install disks. Runs SimCity 2000 flawlessly. Emulates PowerPC architecture (without MMU needed for later systems).
For Mac OS 9 to 10 or so, you could use PearPC but it's not open source and not being developed. Instead, for Mac OS 9 to 10.5, go with QEMU: http://wiki.qemu.org/Main_Page
This emulates PowerPC with MMU. Actively developed. If you're interested in any of this so far then jesus fuck check out http://www.emaculation.com/. We're all working hard right now to get all PowerPC versions of Mac OS to run in QEMU. I check the forums there every day.
For OS X 10.5-10.12, go with VMware Workstation with the VMware Unlocker. This will let you install Mac in a VM on Windows. If you need good graphics though, build a Hackintosh or just buy a Mac.
