pc game ripped the game apart.... so the article is probably referring to that
but even still, if the PC is a blank canvas -- a super powerful tool that these developers can go wild on and create what they want, why don't they just do that? Why can't they do that and then water down the console versions?
It seems to me they can't blame the games lack of innovation on the current hardware when they had a PC they could've developed it on first.
Sophistication is knowing you like the best games, going out of your way to own them and then telling the entire world about them. I... I am sophistication.
