You have games you'll never play now.


pretty much

i was hoping for something like crysis 1 or maybe crysis 3. i ain't tryna play some 25 year old games


But.... it's populous


okay but does it have graphics like crysis 3? no

i didn't buy a gtx 760 so i could play some old ass 2d games. that game is older than me; that's how old it is


Oh, trust me, it's clearly obvious that that game is older than you...


IF you've never played populous, you're doing yourself a disservice by not playing it. No joke

Why do you want to play Crysis 3 with a 760?


wow you think you're cool just because you have a better graphics card huh

Uh, no. It's that it runs like hell on a 760 at anything higher than medium settings

Crysis franchise is one business model that I don't understand.

95 percent of consumers can run it just fine. at low settings.

People like to brag about how strong their rig is, and what better way than to use a game that is hard to max out? They probably sold extra copies of the game to people who don't give a s*** about the game and just want to use it as a benchmark.

Also, just because few people could run the game on ultra high settings now doesn't mean that nobody will EVER run it on ultra high. PC's aren't like Consoles... they can upgrade and improve more than once every 5-8 years. By making a game that looks really good at the highest settings (even if it's too high for contemporary computers on average) they can guarantee that people will still want to buy the game later because it'll still look good 5 years from now.

Confirmed. And they still look pretty damn good at low settings, too (assuming you have a solid frame rate too, anyway.)

Yeah, and more money could be going towards charity if they added Crysis 3, Sim City, Assasin's Creed 3, John Madden's NFL 2013, and Syndicate.

But they haven't added them (yet) because they're greedy. Now we gotta wait 5 hours and 33 minutes.


Assassin's Creed 3 is not an EA game


That doesn't mean they can't add it to the bundle. If they just bought the rights from Activision they could but they're too greedy.


Wouldn't Activision have to buy the rights first, before EA could buy it from them???


I'm sure EA could work something out with Activision like that.
