THQ: “Standing Alone” to Bring Back PC Gaming and RTS

"Let’s face it, real time strategy games aren’t very big nowadays…at least not as big as 10 years ago or so. A decade ago, we had huge titles like Age of Empires, Warcraft, Starcraft, Empire Earth, etc. Nowadays, the only one of these titles that still exists is Starcraft, and released its sequel after more than a decade of absence."-FranciRam

I think it's a bit far fetched to suggest that THQ is alone in bring PC Gaming back, besides, it never went anywhere.

Are you kidding? PC Gaming is on the way out, without a question. DRM, system requirements, piracy...

I think Steam is keeping things well afloat for the moment.

PC gaming is way better than before, steam is THE gaming heaven right now.

it's almost like the facebook of gamers.

RTS Games are HUGE right now! In Korea there are more people packing into stadiums to watch Starcraft 2 tournaments than there are people watching the superbowl!!!

Oh, and fuck consoles. PC gaming will always exist, and it will always be popular.

Nothing is so irritating as someone who knows ZERO about PC Gaming writing an article about PC Gaming.

"Let’s face it, real time strategy games aren’t very big nowadays".....I stopped reading and said "oh brother another Ass Clown talking about stuff they have ZERO clue about.

Go to Korea were they pack arenas and broadcast matches during prime time TV hours to watch people play Starcraft 2, I've been playing Dawn of War 2: Retribution almost daily.
Total War Shogun 2
Might and Magic Heroes VI
Age of empires Online
End of Nations
Anno 1404
Civilization V
Napoleon Total War
Tropico 3
Cities XL
Cities in Motion

these are ALL big time RTS games that have come out in the last two years. Whoever wrote this article knows ZERO about PC Gaming. This last Starcraft 2 tournament had PC Gamers from over 50 different countries but yeah nobody play RTS anymore../sarc

Still can't believe this is still going on. I am too old to say that PC gaming will last forever. But I will say it is still the best for me. Consoles and handhelds do not give me the enjoyment the PC does when it comes to MMO, FPS, RPG, Racing and RTS.
