By Matt Gorman | 10 May 2016 04:45:45With talk of ‘plug and play’ and ‘just install the game’ becoming a commonplace phrase, I can’t help but think of some older games and games that I’d love to play but don’t want to install.
Some of these games have a very limited install base and I find it hard to justify spending $30-40 on a new PC when I have so many other games available for free.
As a PC gamer, I’m often forced to install games I don’t use because they are not compatible with my system.
Some games are even missing the ‘game mode’ menu and even if they are, the ‘install’ screen is still present.
I’m not a gamer, but I’m always curious to try out new games and even some that have been on sale for a while.
The problem with this is that many of the games are free-to-play, and they don’t allow you to play them in-game or on the PC.
This is especially true for free-market games, like League of Legends, Dota 2, or Overwatch.
These games have been in the PC gaming scene for years and they have a good track record of running well on older systems, but they are all very demanding to run and not suitable for modern PCs.
I recently installed a new, updated version of League of Legend on an Intel Core i7-3960X processor.
This chip is a beast of a CPU, capable of playing the game at 1080p resolution and at 60 frames per second with no visual glitches.
The Intel HD 4000 graphics chip is also powerful, allowing it to render games at 60fps at the minimum.
This game is a top-notch, multi-platform title and it’s one of the most popular titles in the game, so I was very pleased to install it on my PC.
But after installing, I couldn’t find a way to play the game.
It would not boot.
I tried various methods of reinstalling the game and even tried the same process on the original PC that I had previously installed the game to, only to find it no longer works.
When I played a few more games, including a few games that have not been updated in years, I found the same problem.
After playing a few hours, I noticed that the game was not starting at all.
I also tried a different method, but it would not launch.
I am not a programmer by trade and the games I’m familiar with are very simple, so it’s not surprising that a simple restart would fix the issue.
I then looked into installing the game using the ‘Steam’ service, which has no option for ‘install games’.
This was easier than installing the games using the Steam client on a Mac.
But even using Steam on a PC, the game would not start.
I went back to Steam and then tried another method, again trying to install the games via the Steam service.
Again, the games would not run.
After more attempts to install, I was unable to get the game running.
I was hoping that I would have a problem with my motherboard and I contacted the support department of the game’s developer, Blizzard Entertainment.
After several hours of trying various methods, I got the game working, but this time it didn’t launch.
I emailed Blizzard and told them about the issue, but the support team was very dismissive of my concerns.
I told them I had an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 and that I wanted to try to install this game to a newer computer, but again, they refused to help.
I contacted another game developer, who said that I could get the title running if I installed a program from Blizzard.
I contacted another, who told me to look into installing an old version of StarCraft II.
After trying these and other games, I finally installed StarCraft II and was delighted to see the game in action.
I have been a gamer for a long time, so the idea of an old game not running on a newer machine would never have crossed my mind.
I am not trying to bash or demean anyone who has invested a lot of money into a game that I am still enjoying, and I’m sure many other gamers enjoy this game as well.
However, if you are a game developer and have not upgraded to a modern system, please do so now.
Blizzard is currently working on a patch that should solve this issue.
If you have any issues with StarCraft II running on your system, or have any questions, feel free to drop me a line.
