More often than not, if you’re looking for the best possible experience with any game, its PC version is the way to go by far, and if you’ve got a powerful rig that can deliver a game with stunning visuals and silky performance, choosing that over a game’s console version seems almost like a no-brainer. But consoles are by far the more popular product, and thanks to that, developers often end up paying less attention to PC as a result- which, in turn, has resulted in quite a few lacklustre PC ports or versions over the years, often even for otherwise excellent games. This is a feature about fifteen such games.
BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT
It seems fitting to kick off with one of the most maligned PC launches for a major game in recent memory. Batman: Arkham Knight – the game itself – has a few issues of its own that don’t sit well with a large number of people, but the game’s PC version in particular has become an infamous example of a poorly handled PC launch for a game. WB Games are no strangers to bad PC releases, but Arkham Knight in particular drew all the negative attention in the world for pretty much every reason possible.
