You know when you grow up on Windows buying a Mac is completely rocket science.

There is no special advantage you get with one, maybe iOS development, but even then you wouldn't have much need for more powerful machines given an iPhone/iPad's relative lack of power. You could argue that you'd want it to develop Mac apps, but it's pretty pointless if you're making games, since it's possible to do that on a PC with something like Unity.
I'd say have fun dumping a couple grand for nothing, but by now I know that not only will you NOT get it, but you wouldn't end up making these games anyway. Also,You know when you grow up on Windows buying a Mac is completely rocket science.
If Macs are this hard, you've already lost.

2. A $2000 Macintosh, depending on what kind you get, is equivalent to about an $1000-$1500 PC of a similar type, not $300-$500. The kinds of systems you could build for $500 would be absolutely crushed in compute power if put up against a $2000 Macintosh of the same type.
3. You want to do this kind of work on a PC, not a Mac. Macs have a lot of support for artist, as in people who draw, edit images or film, make music, develop "apps". If you're wanting to make a game, you're better off using a PC with the more flexible software available for Windows.
4. If you're not up to the task of custom building a PC, your best bet is to just buy a properly high end pre-built system from Dell or HP for that $1500-$2000 you were looking to drop on a Mac.
