Games PC Gamers got burned on
When big blockbuster games get ported to PC, we tend to be cautious about our excitement, as PC gamers have been shafted over the years with tons of bad console ports. Our blood boils when we see crucial missing options like Vsync, Anti-Aliasing, and high-resolution textures. Worse even is when the games flat out don't work as they should. We’ve put together a list of ten titles that run poorly on the PC because they’re lazy console ports.
Hopefully with the next-gen systems using x86-based hardware, a lot of these bad porting issues will be resolved moving forward. Regardless, what's your most-hated console port? Let us know in the comments below.

Enslaved: This title came out back in 2010 and was released on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Namco re-released it on the PC late last year with a myriad of problems. First off, the game has no VSync option in the graphics settings menu. Another thing that’s frustrating is that there’s no way to get rid of motion blur, and Enslaved uses a HEAVY amount of it. Finally the game uses low-resolution art assets making everything look pixelated and grainy.
