No game destroys CPU's as they will never push it to their limits, and even if they do, it is not constant. Having said that, CPU's are able to withstand stress tests (at 100% on all cores)for days and even weeks without breaking. They are made that way. I'm guessing either your computer is very old, or you pushed a really aggressive overclock for too long? It was going to die eventually. FH4 doesn't even use the CPU heavily. Try reapplying thermal paste and give it a good clean. You would be surprised how many times that actually helps keep an old PC run a bit longer.

Sorry for your loss, though. As a PC gamer, I feel the pain :(

Blaming user error on a game is laughable. You probably had a dirty clogged video card overheating or the fan was not working. You killed the video card. You can't destroy a PC with a game.
