Windows 8 App Rules Disallow Games Like Skyrim and Dishonored

Windows 8 seems like a slick interface and a nice OS to use, but the more I read about it, in regards to games, the less likely I feel I will ever upgrade. The latest batch of news is pretty depressing. New reports are stating that any game rated PEGI 18 (including titles like Skyrim, Dishonored and Mass Effect 3) will not be allowed in the Windows 8 store. (PC, Windows 8)

Microsoft can suck my balls - I'll change OS if I have to.

My guess is that Linux might suddenly get an uptick in usage.

Linux will continue to generate further interest whether Microsoft is at fault or now. But you think that you find it hard to get DLC's for PC games now, do you think it will be better on Linux? It will be the same or worse. And the very moment that a company like Valve work out that it isn't worth the time, they will pull ditch the product.

Linux is far from being the answer on the desktop.

Uh I'll stick with 7 thanks. Best version of Windows. Not liking this Windows 8 crap at all.

So you guys enjoying blowing things out of proportion?

This "report" is just referring to the Windows Store, NOT the games store. Two very different things. The app store is centered around applications (and some casual games), while the Game Store will cater to all options of PC gaming. This age rating restriction is designed to prevent porn and/or sex apps from being submitted to the Windows Store.

Also this does stop you from using Steam or Origin for PC gaming either. I am using Windows 8 now and find no issue with it. If you can't buy a game through the App store, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. Like Steam or Origin.

Have some common sense about you before jumping to every worse conclusion.
