Ken Levine Says the Future of Gaming Is on PC
Some people think PC gaming is dying. It’s not, but some people think that. Ken Levine, the man behind Bioshock, isn’t one of those people. And he has the very best reasoning for why PC gaming isn’t going away any time soon. From his guest column over on Kotaku:
The PC will always be the place that drives innovation. The PC is the place where great game developers are born, even—and maybe especially—where great console game developers are born. Halo, Mass Effect, Call of Duty…PC developers first. And it’s on the PC where the leading-edge ideas form, primarily because the barrier of entry is low and you can have an idea that goes like this:
“Hey, I’ve got an idea!”
“Cool! Who do we need to approve this idea?”
And then the idea gets done. Because magic can happen when there are no middle men, no marketers, and no naysayers.
I think you may have a point, Mr. Ken Levine. Read the rest of his treatise here.
