List of PC games with features removed compared to their console versions

From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games

This list is to compile major features, content, and changes that are not in the PC versions of games, even though they are present in the console versions of the games. This list is about native support, and will not list if the game has a mod to restore these features.
