"Now that we've been able to do this once, we'll be able to do it easier in the future" This whole post is really begging for that Sinclair quote about a man not understanding something when his salary depends on it.
i think most of the hate for this game is completely unfounded. It's easily one of the best survival games, period. Tweak your graphics options, you CAN run this game well.
I disagree, most of the "hate" is people upset that they continue pushing ahead with new charged content while the game remains poorly optimized and unfinished. Sure, you can dial down your settings and make it playable but it shouldn't run this poorly on good hardware.
