just like the music industry... Anyone that argues is in denial, pc gaming is slowly dying and wont rebound until someone can stop piracy. Mind you there are a few exceptions like Blizzard and Valve, but two companies isn't what I call a thriving industry.

PC Gaming is going to slowly die because of EA.

Draconian DRM, broken in-the-box games (ala' Battlefield 2142), RootKit installs, and now with RA3, incomplete Serial Keys.

What the hell EA?

PC gaming is doomed already.... the more restrictive they get, the less people buy em. What a great cycle.

Piracy is always a problem, but DRM is a bigger problem.

Don't forget Bethesda. They've just slid a CD-check in. That's all.

I am PC gamer first. I started casual playing Video Games with the SNES and Sega Genesis but the PC was the one that got me hooked. First Game I played was C&C 95. I still defend PC gaming but it sad that Pirates and Piracy killing it.

You would think after MS made that PC gaming Alliance that finally will see PC gaming take back the stage but as we all know from that announcement that it was just what it was. An Announcement.

There is a simple reason why no one is buying EA's crap on the PC, we are all too busy playing fallout 3.

PC is not dying so please stop saying that.

Draconian DRM - This is the reason why I get put off PC games because of the crappy and unfair DRM which limits me, a legit customer. Look at Steam, or games like World In Conflict or even Company of Heroes for a fair DRM and which is harder to pirate. Alot of games companies just don't seem to understand the PC games market.
