>How to Ruin a PC game
Ars Technica with more win than you can shake a stick at this morning. PC gamers face a unique set of challenges to get a good game for the platform in recent times. Game companies, it seems are out to ruin our experience without realizing it.
Ars pretty much hits everything that’s annoying about being a PC gamer in this article. DRM? Worst idea ever. See all of Ubisoft’s catalog. No customization? See MW2 without dedicated servers, Borderlands with about 3 graphics options. No way to customize controls? Thanks Bulletstorm. Force us to jump through hoops just to log into your game? See EA everything, Battlelog, the abortion that it is.
I love being a PC gamer, don’t get me wrong here, but this really does encapsulate most of our issues. Give it a read.
