LastChip, I agree with you entirely. I have been given (today) five games from a friend who says they won't run on his computer, even though it is within the minimum requirements as listed on the box. All of these games are from EA. Now, I am not a games person but I tried them on my PC (which is twice the specification required) and at the moment 3 out of the 5 are running OK. (haven't tried the other 2 yet). I don't know how to play them of course but at least they installed and run (they need a joystick, which I don't have). So, is it a case of "look at the minimum requirements and then double it?"
