There are a lot of great things about PC gaming and also a lot of negatives. I think the biggest issue most people think of when they think PC gaming is cost. Though this is mostly blown way out of proportion.

There's positives and negatives with every platform.

What are you some sort of communist/nazi? The PC has NO known negatives or weaknesses. Your just full of silly talk!

My PC is immune to pain, radiation, EMP blast, tornadoes, Tsunami's, Nuclear War, virus's, and hang nails. My case can withstand a direct hit from a Meteorite. Also it has enough static electricity built up in it to power itself continuously for 6 hours. After 6 hours the "Terminator Nuclear Cell" kicks in.

in the event of the Earth's total destruction my PC has been programmed to seek out intelligent life elsewhere so My Steam library can continue to be played in offline mode...while it works on recreating me from my DNA stored inside a secret compartment.

$500-$600 PC that performs better than a PS3 says snap.

The future of PC gaming is bright. PC gamers will still be PC gamers. And with games like Battlefield 3, I think PC gaming is far from dying. And this is from a console gamer.

I would rather stop PC gaming tomorrow if I had to go from Desktop to Laptop.

i think the only problem with pc gaming is that for example in the case of ubisoft, u need a permanent internet connection and that suks absolutly.
second: the limited times you can install your game, for example mass effect only allows 3 instals.
but anyways i love PC gaming a lot, and i love consoles too a lot

Ya anti-piracy measures killed Starcraft II for me. I hope that that DRM option doesn't become commonplace, cause I can't buy any pc game, or any game for that matter, that I need permission everytime I want to play it. That is the only thing that can possibly kill PC gaming, dumb ass DRM. And it'll be the developers own fault too.

Ubisoft killed the always on drm. It was deemed a failure and thus the sun shined just a little brighter for pc gamers.

I've been seeing more and more ex console fanboys join the ranks of the pc elite master race.
