I play some free games launched via activex in explorer (casual multiplayer), game&game is one of those companies that offers free2play
No pc games on E3, well, ppl got what they deserve, as simple as that hehe. With the internet and Free or cash mmos, i usually don't buy pc games. Multiplayer is the actual tendency.
Last year i bought Gears of Wars for PC, exclusively for the Cooperative, and Unreal Tournament 3 due to the multiplayer, very funny the onslaughts. I dislike single player games a lot, to play with more ppl is better.
As a note, think about working for the devil, noone wants
. To work for pc it's like to work for the devil on these days. You know, your game will be pirated in a high %, anD so much, that profits will not cover for your next project. One proof is what happened with Iron Lore. Sad but True.
In Blizzard are very Clever, Battle net and the online play is something that forces those common pirates to buy the game if they want to play multiplayer. And like multiplayer is the most demanding thing, they win. I liked so much diablo 2, that i own 2 copies of it, and 2 of the expansion too (i have a brother). Like me, too many people
The bad side of all this i have readed, is that we will only see a good game in a period of 5 years for pc... or maybe more years. The rest will be cheap and bad games. The AAA+ titles will go to consoles where benefits exists for producers.
PC games will never die for sure, koreans studios produce mmos like cookies. And it's becaming the multiplayer platform ^^ by excelence, RTS, MMORPGs, Casual gaming, and FPS.
