Now I Remember Why I Don't Play PC Games Much Anymore

These past couple of days I’ve been playing a certain fairly new Windows-based PC game, in preparation for an in-depth review. I won’t mention the title right now. You’ll probably be able to guess it, once the review is finished.

Within the space of two days I’ve gotten to experience: stupid copy protection schemes that try to interfere with my computer’s operation when not playing the game, random crashes, poor performance, a generally poor user interface, modal dialog boxes that prevent me from using the in-game help system, and a host of other annoyances.

I guess this must be some of that “deep, complex gameplay that isn’t possible on a game console” that I hear so much about.
