Still cant do proper plug n play with joysticks, mice without installing something, not all my mice work, but the biggest bugbear with PCs is that even today, not like its the 80s or even early 90s but 2015 is the incompatibility with games, you buy a game in the shop, install it, it crashes, update it, it crashes, spent countless hours trying to get it to work, finally find out its not 100% compatible even though my system passed all the specs needed on the box, not just one game, a few over several years, its the only system where that is possible and certainly pc gaming will never be regarded in high regard for me
The only physical PC games I have these days are from kickstarter rewards, everything else is digital from GOG and Steam.
The incompatibility problems are not even a fraction as bad as they were in the 90s. The PC is very much a relevant gaming platform for many.
Having said that I'm going back to my Xbox 1 to play Forza 6.
It has definitely improved - I remember the "good old days" of having to constantly recalibrate joysticks, hoping you could find a patch on a floppy disk, blue screens of death and being told the program was shutting down because it had performed an illegal operation
