Default Is PC gaming dead?

VR failed
New titles are absolutely crap
Early access nonsense everywhere now in full priced titles as well
People hooked onto Battle Royale only games
No more innovation
Every title is console friendly
All the good graphics are on consoles
Stupid pricing on rigs and now video cards
Much cheaper to indulge in consoles as even 200 boner consoles are pretty decent for gaming with HDR and 1080P to 4K upscaling w/ TV tech

Literally some genres are vanished now like real time strategy, decent pure FPS, and sports. Yup think it’s dead.

PC gaming is only dead to those who only concentrate on AAA crap which is actually just console games anyways. PC gaming is still very much alive, actually it is kicking ass when you look at the indie/AA market is doing. Indie/AA is where real PC gaming is actually at and not in AAA gaming, IMO.
Indie/AA is where innovation and/or creativity is alive and very much used.

Did selling all that mining hardware drain your PC balls of whatever was left gai?

Also pc hardware prices are high because people like you pay the price.

Also pc games don't have innovation because people like you buy every call of battle duty infinite borefare game that comes out

Also new titles are crap because you'll keep buying the crap anyway.

Also people are hooked on battle royale because youtube is a hell of a drug to impressionable young kids who use their mommies credit card to give companies like epic games billion dollar paychecks every year.

Also same with any other game developer who puts micro transaction **** in their games.

Also every title is console friendly because that is where the money is.

Also vr was a meme to sell 10 series nvidia gpus

Also this troll is pretty lame KAC why u bored gai? I mean I know how you gais over there roll you can always message me on steam and I can tell you where i wanna put my peener while you fiddle your bits >:3

Also consoles and pc's are both dead long live mobile gaming.

Calm your tits Seyiji Chan.

No mobile stuff for me as I don't own a cell phone.
No VR either.

But I'm with KAC on the high price of camel sex.
The humps are just not worth the high price.

Better to obtain a new maid.

Not dead, but definitely being homogenized with console games. (KAC likes homo words).

consoles caught up exceptional fast and well, yep. Will be interesting to see who wins the "race" in the years to come. Judgeing by the laziness of most people, i'd say the consoles will take the prize in the long run.

Having been getting into VR, certainly not dead for me.
And DCS will never appear on consoles. Just wouldn't work.

Will PC gaming become more Niche? Absolutely. as the GPU market stagnates (I'm looking at you GTX2080 cards, no real world improvement but a huge hike in prices!) the PC will lose it's graphics quality edge. As consoles adapt Mouse/Keyboard controls (Thanks XBox!) Then the PC loses it's control edge too.

So yea, PC gaming will become more of a niche market for certain games, and for the best VR experiences.

Aren't the 2080s making 4k doable with high settings in some games? Not that it justifies the price...

As far as the thread goes I just figured it was the annual pc gaming dead thread we have every year. Plus the KAC factor.

PC gamming is kind of dead to me, Nvidia killed it with the RTX line of pricing B***s**t. Not sure why I want to upgrade my PC anymore at this point. Could be over after my 1080ti quits playing the games good at 4k. Also putting much more time into console only such as RDR2 which look fabulous to me on the X1X.

If this thread was titled "Is PC gaming currently pretty crappy" I would have said yes. Dead? No.

Then again, it isn't just the PC gaming part of it - the whole gaming industry has gone to utter shite with endless greed reigning supreme and gaming media essentially kissing the ass of big publishers.

Average a 30% speed boost over their 1080 equivelent.
(so a RTX 2080 is actually SLOWER than a 1080TI)

You have to admit the gaming "journalism" especially when it comes to PCs is just ****ing horrid boiling diarrhea, so that part of gaming is dead.

I feel like people have been asking this question for years. Seems to always come up around the peak of the current console generation, and is always asked by people who tend to only follow mainstream trends. Then as the consoles start getting long in the tooth PC gaming naturally starts to shine again. I think as long as you can get a technically superior experience on PC it will always have a following, at least by the enthusiast market.

Personally I have been out of PC gaming for quite a while now, I'd say past 2-3 years but I don't believe its dead. Just dead for me and I would say that's for modern gaming in general, PCs and consoles. Just got tired of the bullshit with the business aspects of the gaming industry taking precedence over traditional game design. Seems they always think of maximizing profit before fun. This could of course just be me getting older and having trouble adjusting to new trends in gaming but meh, I don't know I think newer games in general just kind of suck.

Also, my own reasons play a lot into my current gaming focuses. Nowadays due to work, family and home ownership I don't have as much time to screw around with games that I can't just sit down and be right into the action within a few seconds, and nope multiplayer gaming is not an option for me I think it sucks.

Average a 30% speed boost over their 1080 equivelent.
(so a RTX 2080 is actually SLOWER than a 1080TI)
That would be a nice boost over my 1070 Not for that money though. Besides, I still game at 1440p

I'm enjoying boning the PSVR and some of the recent games they have come out with. Other then Sony jacking up my headset with a firmware update and now I get screen flashing issues. which I had none of before the update! Bleh!

Far from dead, and VR hasn't failed.

There have been a few setbacks, like the price of video cards. But gaming is still going strong and will be for quite some time. It's just another silly KAC thread.

Is this a thread from 2010?

PC gaming is doing fine.

I wouldn't say VR failed. It's what I spend 90% of my gaming time playing. Pancake games just don't quite do it for me anymore.

It would be nice if they released some REAL games for it though.

Well, games that weren't modified from existing games (Doom, Skyrim, etc).
