Besides, PC gaming community is far less closed minded than console gamers because it is all about performance on the platform. The reason allowed them to criticize a title which is so old yet feels fresh and players are actually completing it for the first them on their gaming PCs.
More Titles, Bloodborne eh?
The best titles are already out! Be it the new Uncharted, God of War or Spiderman, almost everything is already available on Windows PCs.
