The love I was referring to is because of the almighty dollar.
They're developers and their focus is to sell. Who can blame them? The console market generates more money so they develop cross-platform games...and that's why the old school PC gamers get "dumbed down" games which are clearly made for consoles.
I don't think the problem is patching (most of the games sport a "automatically check for patches" option) nor copy protection (most of the PC users don't know what the hell Starforce is), just sheer number of sold copies.
Let's see what E3 will bring us... perhaps Lionhead innovative (to an extent) games will make us roar. For now, the RTS GOTY 2005 award goes to Darwinia and the RPG GOTY 2005to Mount & Blade (or perhaps boiling-point).
