So uh enjoy your SimCity 5, Call of Duty... (1,2,3,4,4-2,4-3,WaW,BO,BO2,GHOST) and Dragon Age 3!


Ah yes, the usual "today's games are s***" rant that is based on nothing but Top 10 sellers AAA titles.

DayZ (and ARMA2 for that matter)
ARMA3
LockOn: FC2
DCS World
Amnesia
Mount and Blade
Dishonored
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
Just Cause 2
Every Assassin's Creed
COD4 (It is a good game, regardless of its many successors)
EVE Online
STALKER Series
Demigod
World in Conflict

almost everything. Seriously. PC gaming just stresses me out. Finding out what causes a crash, installing, uninstalling, reinstalling multiple drivers multiple times to troubleshoot things, having to wait a month for a patch to fix a gamebreaking bug/glitch/crash.

A game running stupidly slow for absolutely no reason, newer versions of Windows not supporting the older games, ginormous patch updates for mmos that take hours to download (and if I get lucky the patch bugs out and I have to reinstall the entire 6-7gb game), wrist pain from using mouse + kb in games that absolutely require it, etc etc etc

I was going to post this.

I remember going to the "software store" and renting PC games. Which, of course, I made copies of and if the game included some type of weird disk spin thingy as copy protection I'd reproduce that too.

Ah, good times.

We have Euro Truck Simulator 2 now. PC gaming is as good as it has ever been.
