I built a PC this week, and I am ready to put it through its paces. I was hoping that some of you could suggest some "must play" titles. Some background: I have been exclusively playing on consoles for the last decade or so, as I have not had a computer capable of running anything remotely modern. I built this machine not only because consoles are starting to show their age graphically, but also because it seems like you can get some really unique experiences on the PC. So, what are those experiences? Great simulations? Great RPGs? Great anything that uses a mouse as its primary means of control? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
So, I just rented Battlefield 3 for the 360, which I had previously purchased for the PS3. Upon finding out that I was no longer eligible for the online pass free trial, I purchased the online pass from Gamestop.com (planning on purchasing the game used anyway). Unfortunately, I mistakenly purchased the PS3 online pass, admittedly due to my own carelessness. Now, I am stuck with a download code for the PS3, which is non-refundable by Gamestop.
EA is not available on the phones right now, so I attempted to live chat with a representative, who informed me that they could not do anything without a physical receipt, and promptly ended the chat without my consent. Obviously, because the purchase was entirely digital, I don't have a physical receipt. I sent a screenshot of the order history on the website as well as the confirmation email, but apparently that is insufficient.
So, any advice? I realize that it was my own idiocy that led to this problem, but if anyone else has ever had such frustrations, how did you deal with it?
