Try installing the game again. If you are using window 7/ 8/10. Then try reinstalling the game with compatibility mode. Most games are designed for window 7 or XP. XP games work fine on window 7. But if u are using Windows above 7 then try using (Run as administrator) privileges. And make sure you have proper working graphic card. Install DirectX latest version 11, NetframeWork latest version (Recommended). I am also a gamer and I always have problems like these. Check if this works otherwise. It may have problem with game. Let me know if it works.
I tried all these fixes,but it still didn't start,searching the net it seems a few people have tried these as well and the game still doesn't work,I have an amd gpu and finally got the game working by opening the amd settings/display and then turning off gpu scaling,I hope this helps a few amd gamers.
