I'm comparing Doom 1 to Marathon 1 since they came out for Mac around the same time.

I'm pretty confused by this sentence.

Doom 1 was never released for Mac at all.

Doom 1 was released for MS-DOS at the end of 1993, while Marathon 1 was released for Mac at the end of 1994. (In fact, Doom 2 came out for DOS a couple of months before Marathon 1 came out for Mac.)

So 'for mac' and 'same time' are both weird claims - what am I missing?

Doom got a Mac port in November of 1994 dude. Marathon came out in December. I'd say that's around the same time; within a month. The Mac even got Doom 2 and Marathon 2 the same year: 1995.
