    Could the brass at Microsoft not come up with a catchier name for Windows-based games? It sounds rediculous when you hear a game will be released on the PS3, XBOX 360 and Games for Windows.

    A couple suggestions of better branding:

    * WinGames
    * Windows
    * WindowsPC
    * PC
    * WGP (Windows Gaming Platform)

    /shrug. Maybe it's just me.

    I think it's fine, and a great idea. But there are only 4 or 5 games so far, right?

    I also hate how they called IE7 "Windows Internet Explorer" (instead of just "Internet Explorer" or "Microsoft Internet Explorer") [​IMG]

    Just the name Internet Explorer is crappy enough in my opinion.

    Yeah, I thought the "Games for Windows" thing was kinda weird. Simply PC or Windows would do in my opinion [​IMG] . Well, its not that important anyways, its still the same platform.
