Brother tale of two sons and Dark Soul cause. One forced you to use a controler and another one doesn't set up key configs to match pc players...

and I don't care about those high graphic GTA games...The only good gta games for me are San Andreas and Vice City

Saints Row 2, is that game even possible to run a decent framerate even with a high end modern computer?

I've heard horror stories about The Force Unleashed too

Saints Row 2 ran better over time.

Fair enough, but DkS is what I consider a bad port since it's exactly like the console version.

that would actually make it a perfect console port which in turn is a horrible "PC" game
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

I can't think of any direct console to PC ports that I'd consider terrible.

However, in the realm of PC to console to PC, I'm really irked that Diablo 3 and Terraria for PC weren't patched to include the awesome controller support from their console versions.

GTA IV runs fine, people just think that they can crank the settings all the way up because the sliders allow it. Now DkS on the other hand was a terrible port, but it was easily fixed by a user made mod.

Dark Souls is an exact console port that runs better than on consoles... It's not bad, it's just exactly what you get on consoles.

Bad ports are games that barely function.

The Dark Souls port was nowhere near as bad as GTA 4.

What was wrong with the GTA port? Besides the windowed modes being squished.

Performance is terrible in any settings. To run the game like it should on PC you need a machine that is overkill considering what the game actually does.

It performs below consoles on machines that are above consoles, essentially.

No it doesn't. If you actually set the sliders to where the console versions are at, which IIRC is in the teens and twenties, it runs flawlessly. Cranking up the sliders to max makes the game run traffic and AI across an entire island, if not further. A modern CPU has zero issue with this, and the CPUs at the time of release could easily run the game past console settings.

Devil May Cry 3

I've heard this, haven't tried it.

Also going to have to say Dead Space because it actually makes you get stuck in the game unless you know how to fix it.

Dark Souls was a bad port but not anywhere near any of the above. At least it is playable.
You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.
