An 89% Editor's Choice award for Crysis 2, and an 84% and "id still makes some of the finest corridors in PC gaming" for Rage. Yuck! NOTHING like the action and thrills of Doom or Quake. As PC games in 2012 (meaning given the technology that the PC has today), those scores are well above what those games should have received, IMO.

PC Gamer needs to step up and defend the PC from cheap console ports, by not giving such high and generous scores to games that are obviously not designed for the PC. I wonder if developers see these high scores, and think to themselves that PC gamers are just fine with getting average quality, DirectX 9 (5 years old), buggy games on the PC, and so continue to produce them.

Another complaint I have with PC Gamer is their writing. Their replies to reader letters, screen shots captions, and other comments are horribly not intelligent, sometimes insulting and rude to readers, and often have nothing to do with PC gaming!

PC Gamer does NOT accurately reflect the views of many PC gamers in their reviews/scores and overall satisfaction with PC gaming in this day! You just have to read forums like this to know that!
