Batman: Arkham Knight is having some launch issues on PC, but it's not the first game this has happened to. PC games throughout the years have had issues ranging from server problems to game-breaking bugs, and not just the console ports, either. Sometimes games just flat out don't work like they're supposed to. These eight games are some of the most egregious offenders ever to hit the PC platform.

Total War: Rome 2

Total War: Rome 2 was one of the most pre-ordered games in the series, but when it actually launched, there were widespread issues. Not only was the AI problematic, the units were poorly balanced, and the game played much differently than some of the preview builds. Worse, for some it wouldn't run at all, with frequent crashes, texture problems and poor game performance heading the list of complaints. Creative Assembly committed to patching fixers into the game, and even stated that that they would, "fundamentally treat our releases differently in the future."
