If you play games on your Mac, you’ve probably spent much time having fun in virtual worlds and facing exciting challenges. But sometimes, you might want to find where your games are stored on your Mac. This can be useful for adding mods, fixing problems, or keeping your game files tidy. Figuring out where your games are hidden on a Mac might seem tricky, especially if you’re unfamiliar with how macOS works.
While the location of your game’s directory can vary depending on the game and where you purchased it, they typically follow a pattern based on the platform and store. It’s a good idea to check the game’s FAQ article for precise file paths.
