7 Worst Trends that Plague PC Game releases of today

"Despite the towering resources and versatility offered by the PC platform, the industry has constantly pushed it to the backseat and treated the community as second class citizens. Although the PC is still home to the biggest titles of this generation, Consoles have taken over as lead platforms for the developer, often leading to PC ports being churned out as afterthoughts. Without further delay, here are the trends that have emerged over the years in most multiplatform PC releases." (industry, PC)

Great List
Very very good list.

and when you read that list then think to yourself "Should i pay $60 for this crap" then you start to see why CRAPPY console ports do not sell well on the PC BUT PC specific titles do sale well.

A game "back in the day" being delayed months to release on the PC was OK! usually they were making the changes needed to appeal to PC Gamers (fixing everything on this list) and also not to interfere with console sales by pirates.

Devs/Pubs know PC Piracy is gonna happen and most of it happens outside the United States so there's nothing they can really do but have 24/7 Internet connect DRM so they just put out a "Crappy Console Port" and get what ever money they can get. Also most PC Gamers are not interested in many console titles so i understand the utter crap quality of these ports with the exception of quality games like Mass Effect or Skyrim that appeal to both consolers and PC gamers.

I think Fable 3 PC was the poster child for this list and it got crushed into dust by The Witcher 2!
