^ Agreed on this. It's economics and business. Only those that are dissatisfied complain. For every dissatisfied customer there two more happy ones. So to say "PC gamers don't want this" is inaccurate.

If that is true Duke Nukem: Forever should of been the most popular game ever.

only problems I've had with GFWL are some of my games it seems NEVER saves right. almost every time I play I am starting over. also, if you ever need to call the customer service you are screwed. one of the worst and most useless ever.

Duke Nukem: Forever was massively popular, but for very bad reasons biggrin.gif

Popularity != Positive general opinion.

Justin Beiber is popular on the internet, but as I'm sure you know, his internet popularity has nothing to do with peoples acceptance of him lol.

However outside of the internet (aka "IRL") for every internet person slagging him off, there are multiple thirteen year old girls throwing their training bras at him.

Internet reality is different to reality reality.

Unless you're Charlie Sheen, in which case all realities are directly proportional to cocaine.

Pc gamers this is your cue to shut the hell up and just be happy for once and that means a lot coming from me as I am a pretty sour PC gamer and complain a lot about the state of gaming.

You shouldn't be allowed to express your opinion unless you know what the hell you are talking about.

GFWL is region locked and only available in around 30 countries. If you live outside of one of these countries, you CANNOT buy or play the game. To make things more hilarious, even if your country is supported but there is no GFWL server hosted in it, you CANNOT access multiplayer functions. Dead Rising 2, Dirt 2, Lost Planet 2, etc are inaccessible MP wise in several countries that are live supported because they removed servers while still being available in others.

So if you really think we should "shut the hell up and be happy", then you are a complete idiot.

That would be relevant if that was the real reason even one person in this thread actually complained.

Many games are region locked. That sounds like a problem, most definitely. But lets face it, the majority of all these English speaking petition signers are British and North American, where such a problem doesn't exist. I suspect there's a major case of people latching onto an issue and then validating it. Like you, for instance, who states that you live in New York, but cite region issues as a problem for GFWL.

It's like me saying they don't get penguins in Greece, so I'm not buying any sausages today.

One person said in their comment that GFWL is worse than Origin which is worse than not making a PC version at all. I lol'd.

Region restriction to play is huge problem with GFWL.

I remember losing save games for GFWL games. I lost 70 hours of GTA4 gameplay with save file corruption due to GFWL. I lost save file progression in SF4. I kept getting kicked off multiplayer host games with GFWL.

GFWL is a very poor, half-baked product. It could even be argued that Windows ME is better than GFWL.
