    I do like benchmarks.

    My machine is pretty lacking these days, I'd have never have purchased Street Fighter 4 without that useful benchmark, same for this. Numbers and words are alright but sometimes publishers are a little less truthful than I would like them to be when it comes to the minimum spec to run their games.

    More benchmarks, please.
