Console taint is a term that was coined to describe video game titles, that are released for both PC and video game consoles, that lack a certain degree of sophistication that PC gamers are used to. This could be anything from lack of standard features (e.g. quicksave), strange defaults (e.g. autoaim on by default in a FPS), minimal options, strange options for PC games, game mechanic simplifications, etc.
I’ll review games I thought were worthy of the dubious distinction of being tainted.
