This topic was discussed a while back at Anandtech and the general consensus was the majority of players who experience crashes constantly lie solely on the user's end. Meaning, either they installed hardware that is bottlenecking their system. They refuse to clean their PC which causes overheating. They run multiple applications in the background which cause conflicts. They try to stream when their PCs aren't capable of handling the load. Overloading their games with mods or using mods that cause conflicts... So on and so fourth.

I can't remember the last game (unmodded) that crashed consistently like you hear from some people about various games. The only exception is Hero Siege right after a major update (like the one that released yesterday) but those developers are lazy and refuse to test their patches before they release them. Give it a month or two and all the major fatal errors are ironed out and I'm back to no crashes.

There's always those games (looking at you Bethesda) which are famous for bugs/glitches/CTDs, but over the years players have found out how to prevent most of these from happening (ie. disable auto-saves). I'd be willing to bet that most of the people who are vocal about constant crashes are responsible for the crashes.

Grim Dawn has never crashed for me. Not even way back in Early Access.

My computer has frozen maybe twice, ever. (since I bought the cpu/motherboard back in Nov '09)

The only CTD I've had in remotely recent memory was one time when I was changing Dota 2's video option from Direct3D to Vulcan....

I get worried if I don't crash . Usually once every game play . The worst culprit is the character select screen , if I move the mouse too fast when a character is loading can cause it to freeze , sometimes just swapping characters can just freeze it . I do have other crashes but that seems to be the worst .

I have never crashed in any other game I play atm .

Anecdotal but the truth of my experience.
Your job is installing GD?

I almost never had crashes, even in test builds. Almost 800 hrs on current pc setup. Sometimes the game freezes on loading screen though so I have to close it.

My friend had shitload of crashes, once per hour or so. It started to happen after he migrated to Win10. He tried various things but in the end he found out that other games crash as well and he had to roll back to Win7, which solved the issue.

Anecdotal, but I'm on amd chip and he's on intel one.
Howdy! Ulgrim, are you there? It's me, your best friend!
