Devs now have an attitude that PC gamers should be grateful they still make games for the platform. I don't buy that crap for one second, and they were not making money off the PC they would have stopped making the games long ago.

I bought fallout 3 and liked it, I played the FEAR 2 demo and knew immediately I would never buy it unless I found it for less than $20. Why because it is a hack console port, and it showed within the first seconds. It is an udder disgrace compared to the original fear.

This guy is done wasting $50 on an over hyped POS that runs perfectly on a console. Not so much on the PC.
You do have a point Bacon. We do have rights and should be allowed to return bought copies of crappy PC games. I know not all store allow this, but most do. I returned Double Agent. The problem is most people pirate THEN complain about the crappy port, most of the time right on the devs and publishers site! That is annoying.

I dunno. Dreamernoob is right. It is going tits up! I do have hope though, there are a few beacons out there, The Witcher Series, Valve, EA (The Sims, hate it or not has done a lot to get people into PC gaming), THQ (Relic mostly) and of course modding.
