IGN - From the crowdfunding boom to innovation in the mod scene, why PC gaming in 2012 was a big deal.
i love pc gaming and im happy with digital distribution. pirate free for 3 years and counting
That's great! They should have recovery centers for pirating addiction. 3 years clean is awsome.
"That's great! They should have recovery centers for pirating addiction." They do its called Steam.
oh yah gotta get my quick fix at uTorrent sites. lol Steam kept me clean for awhile now
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.
It's been a great year for PC gamers, that's for sure.
yup and soon heart of the swarm mmmm goods
Crusader Kings 2 Hotline Miami Wargame: European Escalation Diablo III FTL: Faster Than Light Torchlight 2 Just some of my favourite PC games this year But the best thing to see was that more multiplat games had more PC polish rather than a straight port and taking advantage of PC options and features like Physx.
guild wars 2,planetside 2 and orcs must die 2 those are awesome
Man. I love PC gaming. Problem is.... I have too many games now cause they're so cheap :/ lol first world problem lol
I am Hiredhelp Im 33 And I' Am a very long term pc gamer and builder. Edit" Sits back down on chair for next person to stand up confess there sins.
I was so happy that Ys Origin was released on Steam! I never thought it would ever be released in English.
i wasn't expecting it to hit steam,bought both of them at full price
Just bought the Dawn of War franchise right now from steam for £7.49. I now have 7 DoW games to play dam dam dam no time
Steam gives us a lot of sales and good prices games. Ps3 Dishonored cost in my country 69 euros and in Steam my country its like 29,90 euros. Why should i buy it to my PS3 if it costs twice less than console game.
