Chris Taylor on PCs

Chris Taylor offers an optimistic outlook on the future of the PC to, where the Gas Powered Games CEO cites the rise of web-based games and the increasing influence of Steam as reasons for his rosy outlook. "It's a matter of time before you're playing a game of the quality of a triple-A game that we know and love, like a Supreme Commander 2 or a StarCraft II, in a browser experience," Taylor says of web-gaming. "There's no reason that won't happen within five to eight years." He also says that he foresees sales of the PC edition of Dungeon Siege III through Steam will be competitive with the console editions: "That creates an incredible intensity in the PC business that had been lost. So I would say put down even money that we'll see the PC version competing against the console version when it comes out next year."

I love how he casually throws SupCom2 in with SC2. Chris, sorry buddy, but they're really not very similar in quality. SC2 is a kick-ass PC game. SupCom2 is a consolized, dumbed down, shitty sequel that was in no way worthy of the Supcom name.

And SupCom, in turn, was no worthy of being named TA's spiritual successor. And Demigod wasn't worthy of being called a full game. That's Taylor for you these days.

I wouldn't call SC2 kick-ass, though. Just a revamping of the old SC, adding a unit here and there, a face polish and removing some of the most important features to lock people to B.Net 2.0

Anyway, opinions are like asses: everyone has one.
