4 PC games that gave the middle finger to PC Gamers.

PC gamers usually have the fortune of playing video games with better graphics, higher resolution and better support compared to their console brethren. However, sometimes a game, be it a port or a PC exclusive, comes out to shatter our faith in PC gaming. Thus, we list the top 4 games that did exactly that. (Assassin's Creed 2, Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, PC, Resident Evil 4)

What!? No, GTA IV?
I still remember my friend chiding me, for getting the PS3 version instead of the PC version, while at the same time extolling its many perceived virtues (Better visuals, MOD support, less expensive, etc.)

After seeing, the PS3's sub-HD visuals, he gave me a smug look, that literally means "I tould you so".

That feeling of "superiority", only lasted just as far as putting the disc on the PC tray.

Just activating the game, took too much trouble for it's own worth. You literally have to jump through hoops, just to play the damn game. Yeah, register first to 2 websites so you could play. How fvcking lame is that?

After all that hassle, you'd think you'll finally be able to play it in peace, HELL NO! You'll find it to be, the most unoptimized piece of sh!t, that ever got ported to the PC.

My friend, at that time has a Quad Core with Dual Video Cards that can play Crysis on max settings. It might as well be a 486, on how well it ran GTA IV.

And you know what's even funnier? It looks worse compared to its console counterparts. LOL.

No matter, how much we hate GTA IV, at least it has 2 siverlinings for us.

1. Is that, it opened our eyes, on just how corrupt gaming journalism has become. 9's and 10's for this POS? The only way you could play the PC version on release day, is if your gaming on a supercomputer.

2. The incident, propelled my friend to buy a PS3. Hell Yeah! Now he only buys PC games, if its the lead or if there's no PS3 release. Just like me. :D

My friend plays GTA IV maxed out at 1680 x 1050 with a Phenom X3 720 and 8800 GT.

It's not _that_ bad of a port. The modding makes up for all of GTA IV's shorcomings anyways.

^ R U Serious?
You pay $50 on release, so you could play the game 1-2 years in the future?

Sorry Panda, but by the time GTA IV became playable on the PC, my friend's interest in the game, has long since wane. Besides, he already had his fill with the PS3 version he borrowed from me, and had already traded in his PC Copy.
