- too many PC games are nowadays nothing but expressions of machismo - Crysis, Call Of Duty, shooters in general you name them. Everything that requires brutality, war, and combat in order to proceed. This is nothing but a male thing. And perhaps this is the reason why there asre so few non-combat games on the PC nowadays (the Jump & Run genre has practically dies out; same goes for the Adventure games genre except in some backwater countries ).
