To ban my DC from buying any more bloody PC games?

because they never seem to work properly?
DD just spent some of her birthday money on a Sims expansion pack and ds1 spent pocket money on a Star wars PC game. And neither of the fuckers work! Cue disappointed kids and orm spending time trying to sort it out and find online hints as to why? I work with computers all day and I don't want to do it all evening too! Anyhow games going back tomorrow.
It always seems to happen.
Between us we have 5 different games consoles incl an ancient NES so why do they insist on PC games?
So that is it! Next time they eye up any more PC games I am going to beat them until they stop! AIBU?

What do you mean, Fabby? If the game isn't running it's not affecting anything except taking up space. My mum used to say that having too many games installed slowed the computer down and we were only allowed two installed at once - I only realised when I moved out of home that this was rubbish (Perhaps a good strategy, OP? )

It's Sims 2 not 3. And yes we have the base game.
They are netbooks so I guess space be an issue.
But the point is it's never simple! It's either the wrong windows version, pr not enough memory. Or the cd drive isn't right. or the disc has been looked at too hard I bloody hate them! Get an x_box or a wii and they always work...
