Question. Back in the day of the early pc gaming scene with stuff like doom, almost everyone let their friends copy their game and thus piracy was rampant. Yet the developers kept releasing pc games and the industry did not die? Why did it not die? These days piracy is killing pc gaming right?

Oh that's right because PC's then were the most innovative gaming platform and development costs were low enough that enough people bought it to make it profitable despite the piracy. In fact piracy helped make the PC gaming scene grow. People bought computers and bought hardware to play these innovative games.

So here is a hint for today pc gaming industry, learn from the past, focus on innovation, not more polygons and better pixel and vertex shaders and make the PC an innovative gaming platform once again.

FPS invented on the PC.
RTS invented on the PC.
RPG invented on the PC.
MMO invented on the PC.
User created mods invented on the PC.
Multiplayer online gaming invented on the PC.
