...as he licks the boots of the developers... "oh thank you! thank you! thank you! sirs!, may I have another?"

Hey, they brought one of my most wanted games ever to what is not only my platform of choice, but my only choice of platform (for a variety of reasons I won't bring up in this post), and they didn't even have to do that. But they did anyway, barebones port or not. If some bootlicking is in order, I'm fine with that.

I'm a gamer. I care about the games, not about the quality of their ports (as long as they're playable and at least as good as they were in their consoles of origin), not about the "politics" of console vs PC debates, not about anything else but the games. I just want to play the games I'm interested in, have fun with them, and make sure whoever made them gets money for their efforts. It's so simple; why complicate it?

As a gamer who cares about games, I would never purchase a poor port -- sends the wrong message that it's OK to shit on PC users.

They didn't skimp making their game on the console, why throw the scraps to the PC gamers?

Now if a gamer doesn't care about frames, fov, controls, options, tweaks, patches, etc that they expect to have on even an average PC game -- then go for it I don't think anyone will fault you for enjoying it regardless.
