I just finished installing Max Payne 3 in my computer and I started to play it. After clicking on the execution file of the game, a black screen with Max Payne 3 written in big came on my screen. At the bottom of the screen was written Initialization in small font. This screen was displayed for around four to five minutes. Afterwards, another text came which said that it was attempting to connect the game to Rockstar Games Social Club. It too went on to come on my screen for next few minutes. But after this text went, I got a pop up message saying that registration to Rockstar Social Club has failed. I never had an account in Rockstar Social Club; neither did the game suggest me to have one. I made an account in Rockstar Social Club and tried again, but again the same thing happened. Can someone tell me how to start Max Payne 3? Is the Rockstar Games Social Club account really needed for launch of the game?
