What The PC Gaming Alliance Can Do For You

People are sick and tired of buying PC games. Why? Because when they show up at a consumer retail store and purchase a game, there's no guarantee that their machine will be able to run it.

Wow is this two bit organization still going ? I mean just look at the membership, they have MS and Epic both companies are doing their best to grind the PC into the ground, in fact Epic never miss an opportunity to moan about the PC being inferior to consoles.

If you do not know what hardware you have in your PC I fail to see how you can call yourself a "hardcore gamer". I do agree that there should be some sort of standardized scale so that people can see if a game will work on their machine. Perhaps the PCGA might like to get off their ass and start working on one, instead of constantly getting the media to print stories basically saying "yeah we know this is wrong and we will do something, one day".
