If you’re as old as I am, you remember PC gaming as the only real gaming a person could do in the early 90′s. Games were developed for the PC first and ported to consoles last. PCs had the power to play and later on, the internet well before any console could figure it out. LAN parties were a thing that happened and game mods were awesome things that developers didn’t include on the game disc and charged you $15 for.
Over the past 13 years, we’ve seen PC gaming get shoved into the proverbial corner as publishers got paid to make titles exclusive to a console and as games required the newest tech to stay up to date. With that small turn, consoles became the dominant force in the industry and started making all the rules. So with next-gen consoles getting ready to be announced, how could PC gaming possibly come back to relevance? Indie gaming is our knight in shining armor.
