Op Ed

games.on.net - Supporting the PC: Itís okay to get upset about poor console ports, but do the right thing anyway.
This is why, if you support PC gaming, and especially if youíre one of the people who actually signed the petition, you should do the right thing and buy the game. If the game sells well, itíll encourage other publishers to think about doing the same. It might convince more publishers to take their games to our favourite platform, and, hopefully, theyíll take the time to properly optimise them.

If it sells badly, itís just yet another nail in the coffin of publisher confidence in the platform. And thatís the last thing we need.

God, when are people going to get it into their thick skull that buying something you know isn't helping the hobby actually makes things worse since the publisher figures they can get away with it.

If you let them believe we're ok with this, they will continue pushing out shoddy ports. It's like an abused wife that doesn't call the cops on her husband. If you don't put your foot down you'll never see a positive result. The culprit will continue using you because they know you'll allow them to get away with it.
