I'm beginning to get fed up with shit on the PC simply NOT WORKING.
Thats funny, i was thinking the exact opposite today. Mainly i was sitting here doing some work in Flash, when it occured to me that i had 3 EQ2 accounts running (not all mine, dont ask), Macromedia Flash, Dreamweaver, Firefox, IE (stoopid hotmail) and Asureus. All of that and my comp has been running for 6 days straight.
Now im not tryign to sound 'mightier than thou', but it honestly amazes me what the PC does nowadays. I dont even have SP2 installed, but ive got the latest drivers (last update was over a month ago) and it all runs extremly well.
I dunno, the experiance ive had with things not working on other peoples computers is generalyl it not being set up right.
Half Life 2? ran sweet, i only found out about the stutter bug after i had completed it and went back and started to read peoples comments on it, even then i still havent seen it.
I use an AMD-FX 52, GT6800GT OC, and everythign runs sweet. the only problem that springs to mind was a recent graphical error with EQ2 and that was only because of excess heat due to not cleaning the intake filter (You do filter the air goign into your case right? even excess heat will screw things up badly). Also scan and protect from spyware and ur good to go.
Im not saying your incompetent or anything like that, but what i am saying is that jumping to conclusions can be bad.
I will agree with you on lack of decent games (ie too many crappy ports), and i will agree with you on consoles having better multiplayer components. oh and if u want to see a good game return policy go check out stores in the UK, they mostly all allow returns within 15-30 days, no questions asked....

Diablo & Diablo 2 for the DS, it makes sense Blizzard!
