I just got Crysis 2 from the Origin Store for $5, and found out there's a bug in all the Crysis games that output @ 24fps when playing on a TV and DirectX11 is selected. This has been going on since Summer of 2011, so I'm guessing there's never going to be a solution for this.
I Googled to find work-arounds for this issue (turn off DX11, force a custom resolution, an Alt-Enter trick, etc.), but it's disappointing to return to PC gaming to find there's still a fair amount of fighting with hardware, software, and developers to get games running the way they should on first try.
In a way, yeah, it's kinda fun to fix these issues, and the games look and run SO much better on the PC. But at times I want to simply launch a new game and dive in, only to find myself having to troubleshoot why things aren't working right or tweaking to get 1080p @ 60fps instead of playing
... I remember why I gave up on the PC years ago.
