PC gaming is dying! Sorry, no, PC gaming is dead. Hold on, PC gaming is back from the grave! Oh no, it only came back to life to begin dying again. And this time—this time for sure—PC gaming is dead. We used to read eulogies for PC gaming on a near-monthly basis in articles and forums across the internet.

You don't really hear it much anymore, probably because after years of doomsaying and pulse-checking, people have begun to realize that PC gaming, like any other industry with its share of ups and downs and middles, is obviously here to stay.

But declaring the death rattle of PC gaming was an extremely common practice in the s and continued well into this decade. What killed PC gaming dead over the past 10 years? Loot boxes. Retail sales. Digital sales. Casual games. AAA games. No good games! All of these have been blamed for the death of PC gaming, forming an extremely crowded grassy knoll of suspects with smoking guns.

Well, it's no surprise to us but PC gaming is still here, and so are we—though you wouldn't know it from what you're about to read.

Here are 13 times PC gaming has died in the past 10 years or so —I did lift a couple from mid You'll still hear news about the latest, greatest graphics cards, desktop processors and the like. Enthusiasts and fansites will stay as enthusiastic and fanatical as they've ever been. These, though, are lagging indicators, trailing behind a dead or maybe more accurately, undead computing ideal that the computer-using public has pretty much finished abandoning. A report that desktop sales were down and laptop sales were up, plus the misreading of another report from NPD which didn't include digital game sales were enough to declare the desktop PCs were canceled forever.

In this grim future, we were only playing games on laptops and people hated building their own PCs. It's an argument some have been making for years or rebutting , but the oft-reported 'Death of PC Games' really does seem closer than ever.

You'd think that the fact that people have been making the argument for years would be a tip-off that it wasn't true. I guess not. Though… what exactly were we going to be playing on our gaming laptops again, if not PC games? Before online shopping and shipping had truly taken over, the culprit for this writer was that PC games were hard to find in brick and mortar stores in It's not a bad point—even today, it's still incredibly difficult for people who don't have great internet where they live to download the mega-sized digital PC games and all the unending updates they receive.

Yet, PC gaming lives on, somehow. The article posits multiple reasons for the death of PC gaming: piracy of digital games, the lack of dedicated servers, customers unwilling to pay full price for digital goods, developers unwilling to develop games for different hardware configurations, and more.

That's a lot of different bullets lodged in the twitching corpse of PC gaming. And plenty of people play them on consoles, too! It's almost as if people can use two different platforms for the same thing without one of those platforms horribly dying.

As for the Kinect, well Because you can't resell a digital download! This was based on a PricewaterhouseCoopers yeah, all one long stupid word report that retail PC games was the only segment not growing, and that—great scott—people pirate PC games. And it's a weird article because, yes, retail purchases were shrinking while digital distribution was growing. But then why cast aspersions at our rigs and towers? Both physical and digital PC games still need a PC. I don't get it.

That statement will enrage some people, but it is hard to characterize it otherwise; both console versions will have larger audiences than the PC version. As one of the gods of PC gaming himself, it's uncomfortable to read this from Carmack, even considering how wounded id must have been by Rage's poor reception. Carmack, of course, went on to join Oculus as its chief technology officer in before moving on this year.

Denialists will point to this and shriek that it disproves my point. Whether or not that's actually true depends on whether you consider Angry Birds an effective replacement for Civilization V. Another briefly glanced-at chart, another declaration that no big games for PC will be made anymore, leaving us only with casual stuff.

Which is why I'm sitting here playing Angry Birds 6 instead of Civ 6. Melodrama and semicolons? Piracy, console popularity, and the lack of uniformity of PCs are all listed as reasons here, but the central premise is that Blizzard released Diablo 3 on console, and thus was abandoning PCs, and thus PC gaming would perish, albeit slowly.

This is a collection of quotes from developers who felt piracy was threatening PC gaming. There's no doubt piracy was a big issue and that it still happens but it certainly was never in danger of killing PC gaming. No, PCs weren't dead. They were maybe even coming back. Well, they're not. What can we extrapolate based on a report saying Apple sold a lot of iPhones while PCs were selling fewer than expected?

That PCs are dead and this time unlike all the other times it won't be resurrected. Because no one has a computer and a phone. It's one or the other. There's a lot to unpack in this article from shockingly just last year, though I'd honestly rather just shove the whole thing in the trash. There's the whole 'back in my day' crap about games not being as good as they used to—PC games were great back then and they're obviously still great now. The writer calls current games derivative, labeling Fortnite a PUBG clone there should only be one game in each genre, apparently.

I agree loot boxes have obviously been a big issue, but there's been plenty of pushback from players and even a number of governments and loot boxes are clearly not going to put PC gaming in a tailspin.

Battlefield 5 is called out for trying so hard to be politically correct that it became historically inaccurate—hate to break it to you, but our boys weren't flying into Normandy standing on the wings of planes, as we've been doing for years in Battlefield. And even despite EA's stock dropping after Battlefield 5 didn't perform to expectations, the company still posted an increase in profit and revenue.

This whole article basically all boils down to: I don't like PC gaming as much as I used to, which must mean it's in decline. If I don't like something, no one possibly could. So, look. PC gaming has, and will continue to have, various issues and problems and shortcomings. Like literally everything else in the world, it's not perfect.

But if you want to pull one lesson from decades of people predicting PC gaming is declining or dying or dead, here's that lesson: it wasn't, it isn't, and it ain't gonna be. Just to be fair, PC gaming isn't the only thing that died repeatedly this decade. So did console gaming!

Just to be fair, PC gaming isn't the only thing that died repeatedly this decade. Knoll, there are not many games that focus solely on making the player feel like the ultimate ghost warrior, but there are games huge number of sniper games with realistic sniping mechanics and sniper missions to satisfy that itchy trigger finger of download.
