RoboAwesome's Is PC Gaming really ‘dying’?

In the landscape of gaming there has always been a rift, a line, a separation. On one side there are the consoles – relatively cheap and designed to be easy to use by all. Just pop in your disc, pick up your controller and you’re on your way.

No its alive and more popular than console gaming, seen how many gaming PC's there are on the market?

I own all of the consoles, but I have the most fun with my PC.

Nothing is better than seeing my games running at 60 frames per second in 1920x1080 with all settings maxed on my 50" TV.

I only own the consoles for their exclusives.

PC gaming FTW. :D

Console gaming is just more commercialized and not as "nerdy" but PC gaming is just as big. With Blizzard and Bioware pumping out PC games, I wouldnt expect it to die anytime soon. All I know is I cant freaking wait for SC2 and Star Wars TOR

Just a note, Steam's 25 million accounts mean, that in Jan, 25 million unique account were logged onto Steam. It tell you nothing about total number of accounts, and thus cannot be compared the the types of false figures released by M$ and Sony of total created accounts.

I do love PC gaming, mods, most exclusive games of all platforms, exclusive genres, Full HD graphics, AA, better graphics, dedicated servers, mouse and keyboard support, controller support, digital distribution...

I wouldn't say dying. Just not spotlighted enough, theres a HUGE selection of PC games...actually PC games are doing better than most. If you put Farmville in perspective, they are probably doing the best. I can tell you how many times I've had someone come in just to buy Farmville cards...that's some CHEE$E right there.
