GamesMoviesDeals: The PC crowd has long had to suffer shovelware, badly-ported games, pretentious indie publications and the tyranny of free-to-play, pay-to-win online monoliths. Considering all the software balancing, hardware tinkering and budget management just to keep up with (or stay ahead of) this generation’s consoles, you have to wonder why us keyboard warriors keep going without succumbing to the simplistic joy of the console.
I like to think it’s because every now and then, we get gems. Stellar little games that become classics in their own right. So that’s why, when these classics return in new and improved formats and sequels, it pains us to see how far their creators have fallen – be it to appeasing simplicity for the console ports, the wallet-draining greed of the DLC machine, or even to pure and simple laziness. So let’s sit together and lament the comebacks that ruined our favourites forever.
