I have just built a comparable spec PC and can confirm it's all about the e-peen and shoutiness. Especially when most of the gaming I enjoy is from the last decade rather than current gen (Age of Empires 2 being re-released next month!).
It's a complete waste of money, and moreso when considering the electricity bill, but everyone has to have a hobby...
Just as long as
...it doesn't follow TF2 and become the worlds leading Hat Simulator
An enforceable system is great if the retailers AND parents follow and understand it, and as Dazed & Confused points out PEGI is lacking on explaining why a title gets its rating. This episode just screams of playing lip service to the Helen Lovejoy's of the world.
Although it took a while, at least Valve are being open about what was taken, and what might have been taken, unlike others in similar circumstances.
Though saying that, still wonder if it could have been preventable...
LOVE this (hopefully) impartial data
Karoo (in Hull) - "fastest UK intenet" - my arse.
Care to comment?

DNF Isn't exactly a cure for cancer...
...but a lot of the flaws pointed out seem to be related to the console experience - as a PC player of DNF I haven't seen any of the technical issues pointed out here ( although the multiplayer server browser is horrifically slow), but agree it's not all that it could have been.
I'd still say it's worth far more praise than a lot (most) reviewers are giving it, many of whom seem to base it on the 13 years they've waited rather than the game itself.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to find that glory hole in the dream sequence
At least when I moved from O2....
...they only asked who I was moving to and why - when I told the call centre lass she said "oh right, we can't compete so here's your code" - all very polite and efficient!
Outsourcing - the way backwards!
Nit-picking I know, but the screengrab is from the 1999 game Tiberian Sun, not the 1995 classic, as well as Diablo bearing an uncanny resemblence to a post-GDI/NOD-war era?
It is criminal that Black & White was included at the expense of (any) 80s platformer, or Civilisation et al.
I'm ashamed enough having to live in Hull, and the HDM's behaviour over all of this just exemplifies that feeling. What a bunch of muppets (And not the good kind that sing Queen songs et al)
