Codemasters Got A Second Chance

My first Codemasters game was a complete disaster. I had bought it when I was a teen, at a time when money was scarce, only to find that it could only be played on Radeon graphics card (I had Nvidia). 
The game looked to be a space simulation of some sort where you could land on planets and explore them on foot or in vehicles - think of "No Man Sky" but at much smaller scale. 
Obviously, it was my own fault for not looking at the requirements before buying the game but it was my first time seeing a game restricted to one graphic card chipset and I hated the company for it.

It was years before I was able to play this game and when I finally did; it sucked! Needless to say that Codemasters didn't leave a good first impression. I vowed never to buy a Codemasters game again and I've held that vow up until I tried "Dirt" on Gamepass (roughly 20 years later) which was a pleasant surprise.

After 20 years, I've bought my second, ever, Codemasters game: Dirt 3 Complete Edition on Xbox 360. At this point, it probably won't be another 20 years before I buy my third Codemasters game...
