I mean, look at 99% of blockbuster games that started on pc, that got ported over, they've either been fps or rts, doom, doom 2, quake, quake 2, duke nukem, hexen, throw in an oddball like the sims, then warcraft series, age of empire series, diablo, half-life series, unreal series....see what i'm saying? I don't really think it's dying, it's just doing it's thing, seems to have been the focus for a while now. And seeing as games like doom 3, half-life 2, farcry and painkiller are being ported over, I think it's safe to say pc gaming will be alright. It can't die, it's too open. There's too much freedom for developers on pc.

Sorry for making you rant.
That might be true if you're new to PC Gaming. I got into PC gaming through games like Commander Keen, Duke Nukem [the original non FPS one], X-Wing/Tie Fighter, Wing Commander, Monkey Island, and then eventually all the kickass rpgs, the BGs, IWDs, Fallouts and Planescapes. No, PC gaming has changed quite a great deal in the last few years, all for the worse I'm afraid. If it keeps going this way I may not be a PC gamer for much longer.
