This page may require cleanup to meet basic quality standards. The specific problem is: This list needs a cleanup to adhere to the rules listed in the intro. You can help by modifying the article. The discussion page may contain useful suggestions.

This list's purpose is to compile major features, content, and changes that are not included in the PC versions of certain games, even though they are present in the console versions.
As the title suggests, this article only covers games that have had features removed and, as such, some simple rules must be followed when editing: only titles that had content removed during the porting process to PC are eligible for this list; listing content added to console-only version(s) of a game released after the PC port of the original title should be avoided (e.g. Devil May Cry V: Special Edition's new content); content exclusive to version(s) of a game that are not comparable to the PC release (e.g. Game Boy Advance content, when the PC port of the game is based on the home console version) does not concern this article.
This list concerns native support, and will still list games even if they have mods to restore these features.
