Command and Conquer 3 was awful.

Having said that, there are some great games on that list, though they are all within the same few genres. Mostly strategy, an MMO, a hack and slash RPG... for people who claim PC gaming has degenerated into only RTS/MMO gaming, that list isn't going to sway them.

Seriously, you can create a list that is just as long, for consoles. That's the way exclusives work.

Metacritic can suck my hairy ballsack, that doesn't change the fact the game was a f*cking disgrace, and the expansions only made it worse. Same with Civilization V, which was a complete step back from Civilization IV.

The recent expansion fixed that. New combat in C5 takes upper hand in my opinion vs C4

The combat might be fixed, but the actual strategy/tactical elements are so stripped back, it's sad. It's like Civilization: Invisible War in terms of how casualized it is.

Better yet, wanna know how many of those games I care about?

And a few of them would have worked on consoles. Like Amnesia. As long as you weren't being anal about having "THE BEST EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE" I'm sure Amnesia would have worked fine on consoles. Just use a surround sound system and play in the dark.

in the console world games worth playing have ads on TV.

 

why else do you think console fanboys think the only PC titles worth playing are WOW,Diablo 3, and Starcaft 2:P
