    The only thing that I hate about playing the game on the PC is hanging and freezing. Most of the games do hang on PC because of low memory or due to virus attack. I never had such a problem while playing a game on the console.

    I've encountered these things at different times. Sometimes, it's an issue with the game. Sometimes, there's a bad patch or something and they resolve it after enough people complain.

    Sometimes, it's Internet related. It could also be something on your end. It could be settings or insufficient memory like you said.

    I have dealt with a number of different things, but most of them have been simple fixes. It's never been enough to keep me from wanting to play on my PC.

    Can't agree with you there. My PC gaming has been very smooth. I don't remember the last time my PC would freeze or crash because of a game (hopefully I didn't just jinx myself).

    But I can imagine if your computer isn't in medium to a high tier that you must have a lot of difficulties with the newer games. They've become very demanding in the terms of the specs that they require to run smoothly. That's the downside of PC gaming - having the need to constantly invest into hardware and upgrading it.

    My time gaming on a PC has far surpassed my experience playing on a console. It sounds like your issue comes from using a computer that's not built to handle the games you want to play. Once I finally had enough money to build my own PC, I traded in my console and controller and haven't had any issues playing the games I want to.

    I use too a couple of years ago when I was really into PC gaming. Eventually I just switched off to console. If I am going to play online, I'm going to make sure I have a good anti virus.

    The PC gaming experience is more complex so sometimes there is no guarantee that they will run very smooth. The graphics card can become to overheated in these situations and cause some problems as well. The lag time caused by the quality of you internet connection could be a problem, but games are suppose to be the smoothest on a PC ,more than any other platform.

    Some games like Injustice 2 and some of the others are faced with issues. I can tell you that freezing often happens with the games which are graphic rich and network enabled. In such case it's better to go with higher RAM in phone. That way there is not much of an issue.

    In the start days, I faced this problem due to low specifications of my PC. I updated my PC with high-quality graphics card and processor. I have latest versions of software on mine PC. I don't face any kind of freezing or hanging problem anymore.

    I think it all depends on your system specs. We should upgrade our hardware and software. If you face such problem then you should also update your game and check for new patches. This forum is made to keep you update with new things about this game.

    I've encountered a lot of these on my old PC, now that I got a new one, I don't encounter such problems anymore.

    If most your games hang/freeze, you clearly either have a junk pc, or a hardware/software issue somewhere.

    That is the worst problem we gamers eperience oftenly. It can be very frustrating, and especially if it happens at the time when the game is at its climax.

    Try uninstalling your graphics drivers, then use RegCleaner to clean your registry to get rid off everything dealing with your graphics drivers, and then install them again. I've done this before and it worked like a charm.

    Sometimes I get minor laggings but nothing to worry about. It normally sucks when it happens but I'm kind of used it by now.

    Some of the issues don't really affect the gameplay that much in my own opinion. But if your pc start acting up more than the usual, I would suggest taking extreme measures.

    There are several factors why freezing and hanging occurs. Freezing may be a software to hardware relation problem specially when your device specification is low. Hanging could be a connection problem specially when playing games online. There's no such thing in console unless you have a problem on your storage.

    I support you in this. It is true hanging is a sign of either software of hardware issues. And if the problem is very serious, the hanging will persist until one must unplug the power cable or remove the battery in the case of a laptop.
