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.
Technical issues don't bug me as much as bland game design. Post release patching is fine if the game shows signs of being created with passion.
The industry is throwing money into artistic resources and little else. A bunch of artists handed some concept sketches, executing it, then a bunch of designers string it together into a "game".
