On Assassin's Creed for PC and the majority of PC gamers.
You know it's pretty silly when you look at the outrage this game caused when its environment requirements were revealed. I quote from various sources (just Google): "Assassin's Creed PC requirements frighten, amaze" or even "Assassin's Creed PC Specs: Your PC Will Weep Like A Scolded Child".
2-3GB RAM, XP/Vista, Pentium D 2.8GHz+ or AMD X2 2.2GHz+, 12GB hard disk drive space and a SM 3.0 6800+ or X1600+
Here's my take on it.
If you are half serious into PC gaming, 2GB is pretty much the minimum you should have had a year and a half ago. Games chew RAM and if you are still shocked that modern games need 2GB to run properly, you should stick your head in a cow ass and enjoy your stay there. Almost every computer games publisher lie about the minimum requirements so that they can attract more customers. For ONCE they don't lie about it and they get lynched for it.
Why a dual-core processor? I'd like to see a single core processor crunch the numbers necessary to bring an entire city filled with hundreds and hundreds of people to life. Really, if you don't have a dual-core processor by now, you should upgrade.
12GB hard disk space huh? How much is a 120GB hard drive today? Exactly.
9600GT for under $125? What's that? It offers better graphics than the PS3 or X360? Really? for $125? Go work for a week or two at McDonald's and you'll have more than enough to afford one.
If you ask for my opinion on why PC gaming is on the decline, here's what I will tell you.
Computer system manufacturers like Dell or HP will sell you absolute crap for an outrageous price. That piece of shit comes with an amazing on-board video chip, i.e no real video card. That dirtbox won't run anything other than Peggle or Lemonade Tycoon. Why is it that they are able to sell such dung? Because most of you people are fucking stupid and will keep acting like sheep. Yes, you people who come to Stoptazmo, even you are a retarded piece of shit. Go to the tech section and read up on some other threads in here. Bandwagoning on Vista hate without appropriate knowledge or experience, hating on PC gaming because you need to buy a new video card or add more RAM THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE HAD INITIALLY.
Good job guys.
