What was the worst console to PC port ever in your opinion?

Basically all ports of arcade and console games before DOS games got mode-X 60fps hardware scrolling.

Truly, they did suck ass and swallow.

Surprised at some of the games people have mentioned, one guy even wanted to give the title to Arkham Asylum...

These are the Usual Suspects.

#1: The original pc version of Resident Evil 4.
Why? All dynamic lighting removed, 30 fps framerate cap, no mouse support, no analog controller support, blurry low-res pre-rendered cutscenes...

#2: Saints Row 2
Why? Depending on your cpu speed the game may run either super fast or in slow motion. Crashes left and right. And that's just the tip of the mountain, read the unofficial faq for a good laugh.

The Gentlemen of the Row mod does a pretty good job of fixing this one up though and is the only way anyone should ever play the game on pc.

#3: Devil May Cry 3
Why? You know it's bad when the usual recommendation for fans of the series is "Play the ps2 version of the game on an emulator".

#4: Dead Space 1
Why? Absolutely insane mouse lag with v-sync enabled but disabling v-sync risks breaking the game as some cut-scenes won't be able to play out properly if the frame rate is too high.

Saints row 2, RE4 (orginal port) or Mercenaries 2.

I guess no one in here has played Devil May Cry 3. the game was and still is pretty unplayable


Okay i'll bite, why is it terrible?


because the controller support is screwed. some idiot decided that you control the camera with the left stick and move with the right stick. no way to switch it. I've tried a million different things too.

Batman Arkym Asylum. The controls are truly horrible, and even with xpadder don't work properly.
After 30 minutes of gameplay and 3 hours of trying to figure out the controls, I said F it and moved on.


lmao, 10/10
