I have never played a game that had hours of troubleshooting. Type your issue into Google. You'll found your solution very quickly since someone else has had the same one probably. Now if you understand how to actually implement what is being said is completely different. Setting up mods or emulators is different. What looks complicated usually isn't once you know what to do.you missed the word ‘can’, and yes there are occasions where it can take hours. I like to point these things out because i wish someone would have given me strait talk beforeI bought my over priced gaming hardware.
Those examples you gave all you would do is go into the options and lower the settings. That's if you wanted to improve performance if your settings are to high for what your machine can do. The majority of games auto calibrate to your PC specs and you don't need to do anything. So yeah click play and check the settings and go for the majority of games.I ask myself how many Witcher 3 pc players never changed their settings once crossing over the Pontar river? i.e. the forest over there is lush & kills the framerate nearly ten hours into the game. You can play for an hour on one setting & then realize "shit, I need to change here because the stutter sucks". I ask myself how many Assassin's Creed Odyssey players didn't have to change their settings & resolution once they reached the first city, or lit their torch at night? (in that game the benchmark is seriously flawed). Or Fallout players realize Fallout 4 is a stutter fest without locking the framerate in the user settings? These are rhetorical questions FYI, i.e. don't spread bullshit about click & play on pc, because even stuff like rivatuner statistics server is often required to get a smooth framerate beyond what the Nvidia panel can or cannot do.
I'm also referring to the biggest titles as well, aka the blockbuster AAA games which people want. If you're coming in here attempting to get console players to go pc & tell them "don't worry about settings, these assholes who tell you you'll be tinkering with the graphics & framerates are liars spreading propaganda!", I'll call you out.
Don't spread propaganda.
