Why do we need all these programs just to play the game? I took back Black Ops for this very reason. I spent 2 Hours and wasted 3GB on downloading Programs, Updates, random S%^ just to play it and turns out to be a Mediocre at best game -.-

Why can't games be more like BFBC2 as an example, I got it up and running within Half an hour when I first got it, extremely simple. Same with GTA4 and same with Far Cry 2...

Seems they just line there pockets and dont give a ^@$# anymore.

be more like bad company 2? you do know bad company 2 requires punkbuster to play online

Wow a full 3gb!!! GTA 4 has a extra program. Its just to help prevent pirates. You have a 500gb hard drive, if you need more space just buy another hard drive you can get a 500gb hard drive for the price of a new pc game.

Any reason why the three shining examples of PC games you chose all had gamebreaking flaws?
BFBC2 runs Decent on a C2D

GTA4 wasn't that bad.. The Gameplay is the most important..

Far Cry 2? What is wrong with it? Its a great game thats so much fun.

Yeah forget about EB Games, they've completely burned the PC Market. Good riddance I might add. Their prices suck.

As a side note I wouldn't want to go on a BC2 server that didn't have PB. Even then cheaters still slip through.

Yeah, I only shop at JB-Hifi now..

BTW Only the private hacks get through.. Some clever ones sneaking in Aimbots very easily through a PB Server liek this guy..
