That's great! They should have recovery centers for pirating addiction. 3 years clean is awsome.

Let's take a moment here and thank Gaben for saving the PC gaming. Remember a few years ago when everybody was saying PC gaming is dead? Then Steam came along with its innovating-for-its-time digital distribution idea and look at us now, Steam is bigger than ever and the PC market is growing faster than Val Kilmer's weight.(in fact PC market growth rate is faster than consoles' for almost 3 years in a row, even this year when consoles market actually shrinked PC is still going very strong)
Thank you Gabe, and good luck on the Steambox project.

After realizing that Steam titles are so SO much cheaper than brand new Xbox titles, I've fully switched over to PC gaming.

Console gaming is just too expensive.

Sure you get the console a bit cheaper than a PC initially, but you get ripped of later on.

I pity the souls that bought most of their games on consoles this gen either digital or physical copies and wont be able to run those same games next gen. We will have a repeat where console gamers are buying HD remakes of old games just so they can play them again.

Well all you can do is laugh. I remember the hundreds of PC gaming is dying threads. I also remember how many devs turned its back on PC gaming for a better profit. Sacrificed the quality of games to make them work better on console. UT3, Rage, Crysis 2, Saints Row 2, UBi, ID, M$ among others.

All these guys with the PC gaming is full of pirates, DRM, Crappy ports, no PC version...

It all ended up with Apologies, Better Ports, PC focued games and no DRM.

One man (Gabe) and one company (valve) stood for PC gaming. And now they are at the top of it all.

Just became a PC gamer this year. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but it was a really good decision.

MikeMyers2222d ago
