Far Cry was probably first because I started it too late (Windows 7). It just wouldn't run at all, no matter what I did.

Then came Sleeping Dogs. Fun beat-em-up combat, I would have played until the end but my save games just became corrupt out of the blue. I don't like it enough to restart it.

Divinity: Original Sin (classic edition) was another. I was really liking it but then a main quest broke and I couldn't advance. So I decided to wait for updates and get into different games in the meantime, then Enhanced Edition came out so I waited for that. I started Enhanced Edition recently and am now on the verge of completing it.

My second playthrough of Planescape: Torment, perhaps the most incredibly well designed game of all time (and most definitely the best written), had to be cancelled because it kept crashing. mad.gif
U guys mean the 1st FC, wow I remember playing that on a friends machine years ago and being blown away by its graphics and difficulty with hardly any save points. Years later with the help of a HD 5670 I was able to max it and finish it with a quicksave hack.

I played Sleeping Dogs and liked it but I should have used my controller, and I made it maybe 1/3 the way into it and after some windows re-install or whatever, I never played it since tho. I love snadbox games but not that style of button combo fighting. Same reason I never finished Batman.



I could add a list of games that crossfire really broke for me, like FC3, but I can't remember the rest atm, ???? GTA4

only game i ever stopped playing due to issues was silent hill homecoming. it's the worst console port in history. The audio only works half of he time. its crash happy. when the audio does work it only comes out of the left side.

Far Cry 4. The stuttering and the fps drops are simply unbearable. I have tried starting and playing the game many times but simply couldn't. Even after getting an 850 Pro and trying for yet another time the stuttering was still present. The Dunia engine is simply the worst game engine I have come across, which is a shame as I really enjoyed Far Cry 3 despite its performance flaws. Far Cry 4 and Primal were considerably inferior in terms of gameplay (in performance too tongue.gif).

yup that was a mess on launch, got better and better with time, think there have been 10 or 11 patches... but it ran fine with 980, 980Ti and now I'm playing @100Hz ULMB on GTX 1080 and it's silky smooth.

Having to wait 20+ min to get missions sucks on top of that someone might drop out of of a mission and you have to wait all over again.
I wish there was a way to play it like GTA SA MP. Cops and robbers/roll play servers would be so much fun in this game.
To a new player who has no friends its hard to progress or even make friends because no one wants to play with a noob.
I would like to see a server mod for gta V
I usually enjoy playing with noobs, since just playing the game isn't boring to most of them.

Yeah. Last time I played it, was so much better than the time before. But I was still disappointed by control scheme choices on their part.

Usually I'm more that I alternate games to play.

What didn't work right in ArmA 3? The control scheme has no bugs, so even if you disagree with it that doesn't belong in this thread. Not to mention it's great, and has one of the most customizable input configs ever. You can bind macros in-game, and rebind any and all functions. Control scheme isn't generally something I would expect PC gamers to complain about due to customization in games such as this one.
