I mean. What the fuck? This guy must have either made really shit PC games, or never have owned a machine decent enough to enjoy them.

Well the only good games epic has ever made were the Unreal ones. And even unreal 2 while not bad was far from a succes. Remember the debacle of Pariah? I think it only sold on consoles, because pc gamers considered it a tad too bad. Of course consoles are strong, but pc's have something which does do not - a strong mod scene.

This arguement could go round and round for weeks but the bottom line is no matter how much PC games have over console games the market trend is console games sell a lot more. Sometimes I think the only thing keeping PC gaming from crumbling is Nvidia partnering with developers like CryTek.

I think that MMO's are stopping PC games somewhat, since that they never end. My point: If someone had played WoW and started really enjoying it, what would they do; Carry on playing WoW or go out and buy CoD4/Crysis?whatever? Since my PC is shi* (It was a custom built top of the range five pc years ago xD), i mainly console game now. Although i do play GW and UT 2k4 every now and agaain, i find myself enjoying console games more and more now. For me, PC gaming is declining. I suppose it just depends on how good your PC is...

The PC market is far from being in disarray, Crysis, CoD4 and other shooters are driving it forward, as well as innovative pieces such as Spore. It holds the best hardware, the ultimately better gameplay for someone who regularly plays games, and holds the ability to mod the products within it.

Console games are currently overpriced, limited to few genres and aimed at a casual gamer.

I might be overreacting, but could someone honestly find an example where the PC Market is falling?

Where it's falling? the fact that when new games come out with higher graphics and a more powerful engine those without the money to spend to improve their rig (which is much more expensive than a console) to be able to play the games.

But if you are a hardcore gamer then by all means get a PC if your willing to pay the same amount for a graphics card as you would the PS3.

i love pc games myself as i love the mods you can get for them just makes them more fun but as im a student at college i cant afford to spend Ā£200 on a new gfx card every year and keep spending them prices so the 360 does me well as i can easily do all i need to for gaming and im not bothered about looking the best event though ill b able to play it in hd on my new laptop which is good :D :P

the downfall is numbers and the fact that ea is now the main publisher they are there trying to make as much money as possible so they are gona give the largest market share the goods but the best experience is pc but not every one has had the experience that you get with a top of the range pc thats all

You've got to be kidding. They made lots of damn cool games in the old times, during the late 80s and early 90s. Jazz Jackrabbit 2, released around 1998, was a very cool one too :D Now maybe it was not the dominant genre for the market, and some other games got the "games of the year"-like awards... but their games still were pretty good ones, at least back then.
