Forget Arkham Knight: Here are the 10 worst PC ports of all time.

1 of 11

It's now official: Batman: Arkham Knight on PC is an utter shambles. If the PS4 and Xbox One versions were Christian Bale's bad-ass incarnation of the caped crusader, the PC version was George Clooney and his pointy-nippled batsuit.

It's just been announced that Warner Bros. has temporarily suspended sales of the PC version of Arkham Knight due to its terrible quality. As shocking as it is that a company has had to resort to this action, not every developer who released an atrocious PC port would halt its sales. Some just give the whole "We're working on it" line, while allowing more units to be sold, *cough* Ubisoft *cough*.

But as much of disaster as Arkham Knight has been on the PC, it's by no means the first terrible PC port of a game - or even the worst. The platform has been infected by numerous titles that were often pretty good console games, but utter garbage when they appeared on home rigs. And while some were eventually patched and updated to the point that they exceeded the quality of their console counterparts, its still no excuse for charging money for a product that's unplayable.  

So which ones have been the worst offenders over the years? Here are ten of the most infamously awful PC ports ever seen.

    Um, I've played Borderlands on PC. It's actually FAR from the worst PC port of all time. In fact, it's one of the best optimized ones. It can run on HIGH on a laptop for goodness sake.

    And once again for Enslaved... had no problems. In fact, I remember beating the first chapter on an actual laptop.

    Saints Row 2 does sadly still run like it's had too much coffee though. It's still playable, but only just.
