Maybe in 1000 years GM can make a car profitable.
Highly doubtful! But maybe in 1000 years, we'll have computers that can run Crysis!
The game and modern versions of SDL don't like each other.
As with many great Linux ports, icculus maintains the Linux version.
*yawn* I almost got my hopes up:
Neither of which matters -- if your game only runs on the very latest, $500 worth of SLI goodness, with more RAM on the video card than a computer had two years ago, you're targeting a much smaller audience than Linux or OS X users.
You missed the part about the interweb media ONLY covering those titles that have the biggest wow factor and can only (sometimes) run on the latest and greatest card, even if the gameplay actually is subpar at best.
