Bloodlines gets my vote for worst introduction ever. Looked like an 8th grader made it in an hour.
Newsflash: The technical problems in Vampire Bloodlines are also present in HL2, just to a lesser extent since HL2 is a newer build of the Source engine.

The blame should most definitely be placed on the engine, I had to return HL2 because it ran like crap on my sig rig due to Valve's shoddy engine coding.

They relesed a patch because the game sudden crash when you reach some point, the Society of Leopold quest, it hangs, apart for the textures flashing, poor performance and sound stuttering, the game is very good but to me it looks unfinished, I think activison hurry troika to finish the game before christmas and now we suffer the result. very annoying, but see VV nude it´s a must (with the nude patch) and playing as a Malkavian is very funny , I forgot I have an nforce2 chipset and no problem at all with crashing, only stuttering I can play for hours like HL2 without stutter with latest updates
