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 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.
well I am not like your dad. I worked as a chef at TGIF-Mattson

We have Euro Truck Simulator 2 now. PC gaming is as good as it has ever been.
Every time you point out that something is an opinion Jesus shoots a kitten in the face.
