Apparently I was wrong

So I wanted to get:

Transformers: War for Cybertron

Which seems like a pretty standard fast paced shooter, and it was available for steam! Since it was £30, i decided to really look into it: basically ignoring all reviews and videos but instead getting down into the meaningful stuff. Controls and dedicated servers. Apparently it has controller support and no dedicated servers, i will not be getting this one.

Oh and for the record, I was wrong because steam didnt say "controller enabled" this time, I went into the steam forums to find players discussing the same things I wanted.

Meh. Next.

Console port trickery

Something which has affected me on more than one occasion is the console port. There are so many things wrong nowadays than in the old days where programmers would recreate the game for a pc, rather than a console game wrapped with pc controls to make it 'playable'. So ok, I have the game, but gameplay is always ruined with awful controls and i mean terrible controls. Though it annoys me even more that the majority of players put up with it which makes it seem that everything is ok with the port.

Why I decide to bring this up? well, i've lost money buying these crappy console ports without being able to get money back on them. I guess when a game says "controller enabled" just be wary that it means controller buttons are bound to a keyboard, so use a controller instead or better yet, buy a different fucking game.

Player Reviewing Games.

Players are not allowed to judge a game based on the spec of their own computer. The game is not bad because *you* can't play it. I see this everywhere in reviews, there should be some kind of filter for this.

Why it bothers me so much? I don't wanna hear how bad a game is based on the fact that one player couldnt boot it up. I seek to find a review, and all I get is an idiot.
