Steam Top 10

PC gamers have this reputation now-a-days, sadly deserved a lot of the time, for being bitchy, whiney elitists who complain about everything and hate every developer. Who wants to please a market like that? Who wants to please a market like that when its the smallest of all markets?

All the complaining doesn't really matter. Neither does piracy. The only thing that matters is sales. If PC games outsold console games, developers and publishers would focus on the PC regardless of the "elitist" player base or the rampant piracy.

That said, if publishers and developers want their games to sell well on the PC, they obviously need to cater to the PC audience. This means delivering features that are standard for PC games, like dedicated servers, proper FOV, redesigned interfaces, etc. If you fail to deliver these things or you deliver them 5-6 months after the console versions of the game, any bitching and poor sales you receive should be expected.

"but, but, thats the way it has been since the early/mid 90's!" yes, well it's now 2009 and maybe game makers have moved on now that we anit playing games on 14kbs modems.

That is quite possibly the dumbest thing I've ever read on this forum. Nobody hosted dedicated servers on dial-up.
