People want to play their games w/o hassle. Is that wrong? Do they need to jump through hoops?

Is it too much to ask that they have an IQ above room temperature?

Is it too much to ask that the people who design GFWL have an IQ above room temperature IQ? Maybe they could spend some of their billions fixing it instead of putting out press releases about how much they love pc gamers.

I bought Dark Souls on the christmas sale to play since people rave about it. The bundled version of GFWL wouldn't work, the game crashed to desktop since it couldn't login. I had to uninstall GFWL and the Marketplace application (why are there two different applications?). Then I had to download and place a different xlive.dll into the %system32% directory by hand, then I had to reinstall GFWL. GFWL had to update. Finally I get it up and running, go to login and GFWL gives me error code that Google turns up nothing on. Finally after digging 20 minutes through a bunch of jumbled community forums I find out its because you need to login to and accept the terms of service. Why you need to login to XBOX.COM for GAMES FOR WINDOWS is fucking beyond me. Finally I go to login and it works but Dark Souls plays in an offline mode if you don't use a GFWL online profile which I don't want to bother with so I give up and uninstall the game.

At best Games for Windows might not get in your way, at worst it completely wastes your fucking time and is basically unsupported abandonware by its parent company. It is fucking useless and should not be implemented since there are way better solutions. It is just lazy porting shit and microsoft moneybags that get it used.
