You forgot the part where you have to update your console's OS. *sigh*

It's ultimately a side effect of how complex games have gotten in the past two decades. It used to be the norm that a complete game would be devised, developed, and programmed by one person. Now? A whole friggin' company.

The cancer has spread to PC games as well. Want to bypass all the CRAP when you load up Borderlands? What's that? You're trying to skip them? LOL NO, better go into the game folder and delete the .ini files. And you can't even do that in console games.

Consoles are locked down ridiculously tight. A few weeks ago I bought my first console since the PS2.

That's been my biggest complaint so far. I hate the limited capability of them and the EULAs Warnings, etc. Consoles are built like PCs nowadays; limited PCs. The boxes are super capable of just about anything, but the software loaded on them doesn't let you do much.

I miss PC gaming :/

Hm, cause lord knows that all that processing power is going towards showing logos and intros. We're in the digital age and STILL the video games don't really look like the first intros.

INSERT SUPER MARIO BROS./DUCK HUNT CART -> PLUG IN LIGHT GUN -> SELECT DUCK HUNT -> PLAY.

Yep skipable is a nice thing. My brother has a wii at his place but no internet so he has not had to update or anything. He has brought it over to mine a couple times when he got a new game that would not play because no updates but technically he just turns it on selects the game and starts the game since he does not have the internet connection to add to the process.

I take all that time to browse the ACen forums and eat. Personally, I could care less as long as the game runs eventually.

You'll eat those words when there's a mandatory five minutes of unskippable advertisements before the title screen. (look what movie-going has become... car commercials and all the crap IN ADDITION TO the trailers)

Then I need to update this particular title or be signed out from xbox live (then a restart).
Then all this waiting still leads to me being told I can't have a system link because everyone's consoles or games lack the latest patch...
Then I feel very sad

If you have that big of a problem with it stop playing new games and plug in your NES or SNES and play that insted, quit your bitchin, and for any pc game you can bypass anything all you have to do is delet the files *sighs loudly in disapint*

Every game for the PC should give you the option to press ESC to bypass all that bs. I know a few games allow you to but most make you sit through looking at who made the freaking game. IDFC I JUST WANNA PLAY MY FREAKING GAME!!!1
