Modern Warfare 2 on PC was in my humble opinion a heap of crap.
Sure it was fun to play and admittedly enjoyable at times, but the console-esque matchmaking and peer-to-peer server hosting reeked of console emphasis, ultimately leaving a well deserved sour taste in the mouths of PC gamers the world over.
Well thankfully in the latest game, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer games said from the beginning of development that they were aiming to listen to the PC crowd on a number of issues including dedicated servers, Steamworks support, and even LAN support. Today the minimum system requirements for the game were made available and they’re definitely ported straight from a console.
A minimum GPU of 256MB? What’s Windows XP? Definitely not the sort of stuff we’re seeing elsewhere…
