This is more a list of moaning at Publishers and Developers who did not deliver the goods people were expecting, and as some know I keep saying it the PC market is dying due to Warez. Greed amongst people is killing it. This is just a bit of proof that I am correct.

But I will admit a couple of his admissions were not right, Bethesda??? Yes the Fallout 3 had problems but most PC games do anyway, so much compatibility issues that is very difficult to get a 100% working product.

At the end of the day Publisher and Developers know they can maximize potential profits by releasing to the console market first, then when happy finally do for the PC by which time most don't care if they do a port that its 100% working or if not a port they will release an engine that will work on a general specific spec of components anyone else can lump it.

I can't believe they forgot the biggest fail on the face of the earth which is Activision, they should have a full page just for them.

Ascaron, Flagship Studios, and many others should be given 'dishonorable mention' for how NOT to run a company - did these people expect the banks to forget about the loans?
On top of that players are stuck with games that may or may not have 'final patches' that may or may not work just as the company goes bankrupt.

The gist of the website's critique of Bethesda is that they watered down their time-tested variation of the GURPS system and their game engine for Oblivion to make it "console friendly", and have not given any indication that they will repair their damage to it.

TES 1-3 were RPGs. Whereas Oblivion and Fallout are FPS's.

It's a veritable kneecapping for PC gamers accustomed to complexity of games.

And even as watered down as it was, console reviewers still complained it was too complicated.

Morrowind was just the same as Oblivion.

Hmm having just played Force Unleashed II I'm inclined to agree with Lucas Arts being there now. No game should be finished in 3-4 hours, especially me since I am pretty unskilled at these kind of games :/

Correction. Jedi Knight Series. Jedi Academy was just the last game in the series. I prefer Jedi Knight Jedi Outcast more, but they were both great. At first I thought The Force Unleashed would bring to the table but it failed horribly.
