It's quite sad really. Deus Ex, Dead Island, Rage, Red Orchestra 2, BF3 Beta game launches...these are all indicative for the state of PC Gaming.
Only game I recall getting recently that hasn't had a bad launch was Bastion.
Played Deus Ex today for the first time in a few weeks, and seems to have finally been fixed with a combination of the last patch and the new AMD Rage video drivers. I can finally play, even with SSAO on High and everything else maxed at 1080. Very few hitches etc.
Dead Island was broken for 5 days with the wrong build and disabled coop servers.
Red Orchestra 2, various problems, too many to name, culminating in an achievements and stats reset. It was needed, but should never have had to happen.
Rage, so many problems and still ongoing.
When does it end?
