PC Gaming Is Dead, Long Live PC Gaming! Part 1

6 01 2010

by xeroxeroxero

It’s a long held belief that the hardest of the hardcore gamer, rocks a PC. Near infinite expandability, game modding to the point that entirely new games can be fashioned out of others (e.g. Portal) and an always on community linked directly to the greatest online gaming experience available; the untethered internet.

Gaming and Government: The Politics Of Play

16 12 2009
