Bungie has released its Marathon Trilogy for free. Anyone curious to find out how Bungie convinced Microsoft to put so much into the Halo franchise, will be interested in these games which, in another MS related twist, was Mac only. Yes, Microsoft gave its flagship XBox title to a company that had previously made a Mac-only game.

Although the game was originally Mac-only, the games have been modified so that PC owners can also enjoy them. Bungie offers absolutely no support for those trying the games on PC and be sure you have the patience and know-how before you attempt to play the games. You can find a website offering extensive, step-by-step instructions by following the download tab above. Please also make sure you read the Bungie FAQ on the official release website.

Marathon is a series of first-person shooter games released for the Macintosh in the 1990's by Bungie, the company now best known for Halo. The series includes:

- Marathon
- Marathon 2: Durandal
- Marathon Infinity

The games have often been praised for their immersive and engaging story.

some of the best computer games (fps) ever made, so old though. Man these are the original fps's with stories that made you interested and graphics, that at the time rocked (i had to buy 8 megs of ram damn it (($$$) in the day). Anyways, try them out, they were really good.

Yes, marathon was on PC, because I still have marathon 2. honest mistake by someone who hasn't been watching the games industry for the last 12 years... ha. Anyway, I remember how cool this game was, and I was compeled to get my younger brother to play the game just a month or two ago, mainly to see the similarities to halo, like the slow feeling jumping, weapons,(MA-75 assault rifle in mara and halo)... now this comes up. Strange timing.

Amazing. Absolutley fascinating. Why is everyone on Megagames so bloody incapabale of lightly proper nor complete grammar? It's baffles the mind.Cool to see that Marathon has been release for free to the PC. Kudos to Bungie for their generosity, it's good to play the game that pioneered so many things yet was ignored because it was on the mac.... Oh, and still have a good storyline. A first for FPSs.
