I am thinking about getting a Macintosh LC 475, which is an older computer. I am curious, could I play Descent 1 and/or Descent 2 on it? Also, what about FreeSpace or Descent 3?

The LC 475 was released in 1994. Descent 1 was released in 1995. That's only 1 years difference???

There was a Mac version of D1/D2 if I recall, and they might be in the same date range that it'd work. FreeSpace/D3 weren't released for the Mac that I remember, and even if they were a machine of that vintage wouldn't have a prayer of running them.
