|Legend: Hand of God

One of the things that has always bugged me about PC gaming is when I get a buggy game. Why is it that console games are released with much higher standards? It's like so many PC games get released with bugs so they can be patched later. It's no wonder so many industry insiders worry about the future of PC gaming.
Legend: Hand of God is a perfect example of the 'release now and patch later' mentality. This game had a lot of potential to be great, as it combined many elements of games like Titan Quest, but it is so damn buggy that I gave up playing it. I felt like I was beta testing the software, when that's something the developer should have done before releasing it to market.
I think this game still has some potential, but until they work out the bugs and release a major update, it's not worth your time or money. Why pay for something unfinished?
