Windows 7: problem with pc gaming.

You know what I'd like to see, some of the fun come back into gaming.
It's all big development, big bucks, big comapanies and big promo these days.

I would love to see shareware and small back room programming make a comeback.
Remember Doom, Manic Miner, Elite, Halls of the Things and my old fav. Chuckie Egg?
All small productions that hit it big, but were made with a small group of enthuiasts.
The games were made to fit the hardware available - not made in the hope the hardware would catch up and make them playable.

I suppose it all comes about making that money, these days.

Woo, sorry my spellings way off - maybe I should stop gaming and starting learning how to spell.. ha ha!

thats my point i'm not saying make it run on dated hardware but whats the deal with these games that come out and the top of the line equipment still has trouble running it at max settings in a high resolution. just make them a little more accessible to the average user. and yes it is a sad reality that pc gamers don't really get many console ports, but considering te cost involved with being a serious pc gamer it's likely that most have console systems as well. then again on the bright side a title that comes out on the pc first will sometimes take years until a console can run it properly.

the irony is that a game is written and developed on a pc but made for a console...

That is true if by max settings you mean 16AF/16AA - it's not true if AA is off usually. So a 4890 can play X game maxed out except for AA off or at 2 samples.
