Might seem ghey, but I like to socalise and talking to PC gamers round here is just depressing.

One thing that really makes me sad, small devs like 2D Boy, reported a 90% piracy rate for the PC version of World of Goo. WTF? PC gamers want good games, cheap, when they get it they steal it. Do you know what I do when I can't afford a game... I wait! The game isn't gonna get any worse sitting on the shelf, but it will get cheaper... Grrr, the whole thing just makes me mad, especially when you get the likes of Noriega and Jonelo posting here proving everyone right about PC gamers. I was an exclusive PC gamer for 20 years dammit!


K. I'm done... For now ::

EDIT: There is that too bacon, although I notice more and more people refuse to use the detail sliders in games, instead they whine about it being poorly coded, then when the devs remove options, they whine they can't lower the details!
I really hate to say it, but I agree and I've noticed the same thing here.

I know some people who pirate PC games like crazy, and I don't know many other people that play "serious" PC games.

What sucks is, I really do feel that PC games are superior to console games, but it doesn't change the fact that people are slowly sucking the life out of the platform.
