I LOL at Rockstar all day long whenever they mention PC.

Now I get your points, but I have to disagree on one aspect.
Hardware companies push better and better hardware, faster and faster these days. Devs know this, and don't seem to mind if a game isn't optimized, because the hardware will catch up to their laziness eventually.
Look at Crysis, then at Warhead. The first game is BADLY coded, yet everyone still uses it a benchmark because they would rather have a rig that can run a badly coded game for e-peen, than to just use Warhead. Crytek became VERY aware of this, so they dropped the patch for C2 that slows everything to a crawl, while IMO, not doing that much for the GFX side of things. Even though the improvements were, IMO again, minimal, PC gamers rejoiced at the validation of their investments.
My opinion is that many PC gamers aren't happy unless they have something to show off to a community made up, largely, of strangers. Which is, to me, somewhat sad. Either be a hardcore enthusiast and run 3DMark and Cinebench all day, or be a GAMER. Trying to be both tends to just make people angry all the time.

@Nixuz:
Crysis isn't badly coded at all. Do you have even the SLIGHTEST clue how much is being rendered on your screen in Crysis, in real time?

I know, but what I mean is..when the games I listed are released, they are released all together. But Rockstar (twice in a row now) waits for months and then decide to port their games over.

Also when I mentioned Mafia and Crysis, those games came out on PC first and then was ported. That's what I meant by exclusive. But some people take things too far unfortunately. This thread was to show how Rockstar thinks by releasing and porting a game months after the console release, they are supporting the PC platform..and also that I don't like to be treated that way and buy their games, but to buy games that at least the publisher/developers had the PC in mind just a little to release all platforms at the same time.. Understand?

This^
I played Crysis on an AMD 64+ X2 3800, 3 gb of ram and a 8600gts. I ran it on high... at 800 by 600. But even at that resolution it was still better than any game I have played on the current gen consoles.
Walking through Tropic area... OHHHHHHHHHHH SOOOO PRETTTTYYY!!!

crysis and crysis two are limited by the insane polygon counts in rendered each frame, not badly coded id say, just maybe a little too many unnecessary triangles in the meshes imo

I personally would love LA Noire on the PC as long as it runs smooth which I doubt will happen It was a great game when I had it for PS3
post #70 of 85
Rockstar must be trolling. They've been treating the PC as a sub-par platform since at least 2001, pretty much ignoring the userbase by releasing games riddled with an array of DRM and a truck-load of problems that come with it, some games never even got a decent patch from them to run on newer PCs.

And I don't want another freaking Mafia II (I'm sorry, I'm sure there are differences between Mafia/LA Noire, but I'd much rather have Red Dead), I want Red Dead and so does almost everybody else. PC isn't lacking sandbox games, almost every platform including the PC has always lacked western shooters.

RDR or get the hell out.
