Mac's will you allow to install a Windows OS and the should all come with a windows disk that has all the right drivers.. I know my Old macpro did and it was a 2011 model. Virtual box will not work as it will not recognize the video card, so it's a rather useless option for gaming.
Steam does have a bunch of games that will support the Mac OS, as Jaw mentioned indies play well. I did not mind my Macbook pro for the most part but it just sucked for gaming. It handled Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 and WoW maybe not on the highest settings (WoW had to have most things turned down) but they ran.
Depending on how badly you want to play PC games I would recommend maybe looking into a PC laptop... with Christmas pretty close I see Bestbuy having a lot of flash deals (up here anyway) and I am not sure if you guys have boxing day (or something like it) the day after Christmas but it may be worth looking into.
