Op Ed

The New York Times - Video Games Are Destroying the People Who Make Them.
"Among video game developers, it’s called “crunch”: a sudden spike in work hours, as many as 20 a day, that can last for days or weeks on end. During this time, they sleep at work, limit bathroom breaks and cut out anything that pulls their attention away from their screens, including family and even food. Crunch makes the industry roll — but it’s taking a serious toll on its workers."

"Those days?" If anything, crunch is less now than it used to be. Which isn't saying things are good now, but this is what game development has been for 25 years.

Games were much higher quality in the late 90's because budgets were smaller and graphics were less detailed projects were more manageable. Pc ports have been shit forever, go load up UT or UT2004 the options blow the socks off almost all modern AAA game ports.
