You can't talk about one without the other. Gaming on PC took a major hit after 2000 if you'd been PC gaming all through the 90's because of PC devs switching focus to consoles. The last 10 years has been pretty mediocre for PC games (and all games) all around compared to the 90's. Every other game is a sloppy port of some dumbed down multiplatform console game. We could also mention the removal of dedicated servers from first person shooters and DRM/online only in publishers attempts to ram console like bullshit upon us.
You have to be stupid to believe 'it's the best time in 35 years' to be a gamer when game ownership is being removed from us every which way from steam to origin and back and millions of mouthbreathers taking it up the ass supporting the whole clusterfuck.
