The people who complained it was too demanding, they were gamers. Naturally they were annoyed they couldn't enjoy the game without forking out some serious cash. The people who complained it wasn't demanding enough, they were elitist douchebags who only care about comparing e-penis lengths.

It's a Yiddish word.

So people are either cheap or elitist douchebags? It seems people can't win with you unless they have exactly the same amount of money as you.
The DX11 features for Crysis 2 should have been developed for release with the game. As it was they were released in a patch afterwards and there were significant issues, like some areas of excessive tessellation and there was invisible water under the level that was tessellated - it significantly reduced performance without any visual gains.

I will never understand why people seem to think of an entire community as a single-minded individual.
Seriously, it doesn't take much brainpower to figure out that developing to the high-end will "alienate" those with crappy PCs, and developing to the low-end will pee off the people that splashed out the $$$ for high-end components. You can only make one side happy, pick one.
And let's be honest, a big part was due to the blatant console pandering in Crysis 2 because Cevat Yerli got his panties in a twist over "PC" piracy.

Cevat Yerli is a developer - and he's not the only one to get horked about piracy (PC or any other platform). The issue is, in fact, a valid one; CASUAL piracy is far easier on the PC than any other platform. (Not piracy as a whole - the issue is more the casual sort - it affects, games, operating systems, applications, etc.) Stopping ALL piracy may be an eventual goal - however, Cevat Yerli is quite aware that THAT goal may well be wishful thinking. However, ALL developers want to put a major dent in casual piracy. However, that wasn't the ONLY reason that Crysis 2 pandered to consoles - what those of us with PCs seems to forget is that very reason why most of us choose PCs over consoles (upgradability) makes DEVELOPING for PCs like threading a needle while driving in the Rolex 24 at Daytona - at night. With consoles you have a SINGLE set of standards to target - it is the equivalent of old-school writing to the hardware. Far easier for developers.
