PC GAMING IS NOT DEAD OR DYING. Games like Spore, ET:QW et al prove it.
Eh, not really. Those games may or may not be of any quality when released; and with Spore, specifically, it's an interesting looking game, but it is a game developed under the EA umbrella, a company consistently bashed for it's lack of quality in its products. PC gaming has certainly been in at least a decline for a long time now. I mean, go to your brick and mortar stores and look at the available selection of PC games. It's nothing compared to the consoles. Personally, I also order less PC games online than I do console anymore. Tastes change, for sure, but there are only a handful of PC titles released each year that really catch my interest anymore.
