When I run into a computer based "why doesn't this game run properly" question, I immediately check the users reported system requirements against the minimum system requirements reported by the manufacturer. From time to time, I will also compare the users graphic card with the minimum suggested card, if the problem is graphics related.
In almost all of these situations, the user was in fact reporting that they were attempting to play the game on a computer that did not meet the bare system requirements for the game.
My action in the past was to vote to close the question, with explicit information on why their computer does not meet the system requirements. Whenever I look back on one of these questions, in the past, they have been closed under my reason of 'asking why a game doesn't work when the system does not meet minimum system requirements'.
Today I noticed that one of these questions, My screen goes partially black after closing a menu in Team Fortress 2, was not actually closed. One of our new mods, Robotnik, suggested I simply use my close reason as the answer. I assumed, initially, that this question was left open due to the greater broadness of the system requirements. As Team Fortress 2 does not have as severe graphic requirements, the only requirement is a card compliant with the version of DirectX being used. However, the user was using a basic integrated card, which still would not meet the basic requirements.
However I have since noticed another question, Why is my Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 not loading, is currently in the process of being reopened. The initial closure was due to the question being unclear, but as addressed in the comments, it is an obvious case of trying to run a game where the system simply does not support it; User is again using an integrated card, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 requires a dedicated graphic card.
While it can be assumed that users are simply looking at the original close reason, and agreeing that the question is infact very clear, I am also under the impression that we do not reopen questions to re-close them under a more accurate close reason. So I thought I would ask, here, and get the opinions of the other users.
Should we accept questions asking "why won't this run" when the users computer is quite clearly below the minimum requirements?
In further discussion, should we deliberately address the problem? For example, should we be taking a differant stance if the users graphic card is specifically the 'below par' part, but the problem is not graphics-related?
