GameRanger is a lightweight application that allows you to play over six hundred games (including demos) with your friends and other users from all around the world. Therefore, if you have any of the supported games installed on your Mac and you are tired of playing them alone, then you might enjoy this handy tool.
GameRanger provides you with a list of all the hosted servers, along with some information like the ping status (useful for faster connection speed and stable gaming), number of player currently connected or description. You can easily join the games with just a click of a mouse or you can host a game for your friends in a very simple manner. Furthermore, this application provides you with the possibility to add a password to your server so that you will be able to enjoy a private game, without any unknown users.
Besides putting at your disposal the ability to host and join games, GameRanger also allows you to enter chat rooms in order to communicate with other users, add other gamers to your friends list or block annoying people with very little effort.
GameRanger even supports in-game voice communication so that you won't waste your time typing messages. Simply press the desired key to enable voice and talk to your friends or teammates for a better coordination and overall game experience.
