What? You think most PC gamers are pirates? Steam killed PC piracy. Strawman argument. Most PC gamers don't even know these forums exist and much of us do not actually cry when requirements are higher. A big part of those who bitch do end up buying the game too. It's called bitching for a reason, it's something done for no good reason. Also, you'd think the marketing departments in these well-versed gaming companies would have realized they shouldn't push for more demanding settings? Why do they keep doing it if it doesn't sell?
