Why does 'port' imply anything negative about the game? That's the first time I heard anyone say something like this.
Patrick often states quite controversial opinions on what is considered the status quo.
People don't want to be reminded that the game was developed for an entirely different platform. That implies the game is not optimized, thus an inferior version.
Maybe you don't put that into to the word "port". But enough people do so it's hardly a controversial opinion.
(What's up with nitpicking every word Patrick says? It's not like the rest of the crew's every statement is completely flawless.)
Never heard "port" being used in a negative fashion either. I didn't really understand what Patrick was referring to, just sayin'
I've heard the term port being used negatively quite often, but it's just the awkward phrasing that Patrick used which made it seem even more negative than usual.
That said Witcher 2 definitely has some porting-pains but they are minor issues and as a whole the game is transitioned quite well despite being a very PC-heavy RPG type.
