It's high time for a new poll, and Bruno's excellent blog post on the 10 commandments of PC games is perfect fodder. Bruno highlights a number of sins committed by PC games, but which one is the most egregious? There's no shortage of options from which to choose, including lousy mouse support, the lack of user-hosted dedicated servers, and extraneous DRM and online services, just to name a few. "All of the above" isn't an option, so you'll have to pick just one or chime in with your own gripes in the comments below.
In our last poll, we asked you to pick the best first-person shooter weapon. The race for first place was relatively tight, with Half-Life 2's gravity gun garnering 23% of the vote, and the iconic BFG 9000 taking 19%. Behind the leaders, the Quake 2 railgun nabbed 11% of the vote, Unreal Tournament's Redeemer took 9%, and the Counter-Strike AWP and Doom II super shotgun each snagged 8%. Quake's original rocket launcher only came out on top for 6% of our voters, while Halo's energy sword and Gears of War's chainsaw lagged behind with 3% and 2%, respectively. The remaining 11% have favorites that weren't on our list, including the Portal gun, Tribes' disc launcher, and the minigun from Serious Sam.
