Modern PC gaming

Well-reviewed game that's been on the shelves for about 18 months and is marked down: $20.

Time to install game from DVD: about an hour.

Time and effort to apply all the damn patches that are necessary before actually playing: three days, 37 GB of downloads and a net connection that's useless for anything else in the meantime.

...Sigh. I hope I get to play Neverwinter Nights 2 before next Christmas.
