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.
