If you're caught between the crossfire between console owners and PC gamers, Nvidia urges you to put down your weapons and simply defect to the PC side. According to Matt Wright, consumer sales manager at Nvidia, "the PC platform is far superior to any console when it comes to gaming." In other news, PC gamers are laughing until milk snorts out their nose. In other news, water is wet.
So is PC gaming hosed? That seems to be the case for games that a) are not massively multiplayer, b) don’t have “Sims” in the title, or c) aren’t played by your mom.
But it’s not really as dire as all that. Mass Effect actually made it to number 2, and Sins of a Solar Empire to number 9, on the current NPD PC sales charts.
Those numbers, however, don’t reflect where PC owners are really gettin’ their game on: with casual games. Remember when you would say you were a PC gamer and people would say, “Yeah, me too,” and you’d ask what they played, and they’d say, “Minesweeper and Solitaire.” And you’d chuckle. Good times!
