Just a quick note - this is something I am doing primarily on my blog, but I will post bits of it on Dtoid as well to keep you all up to date. As I mention below, if you have any ideas/thoughts on what you want me to cover, just let me know :)
I have recently received an email and had a few comments here that have led to me wanting to write an extended article regarding the current state of PC Gaming. The email and comments covered a few different aspects of PC Gaming (and gaming in general.) The email detailed how the person (who wants to remain anonymous) had quite suddenly fallen out of PC Gaming and shifted to console gaming. I have had comments here on the blog which have also led me to consider writing this piece. I have received a few concerning piracy which plays a key role in the PC Games industry at this moment in time, and I have had other comments regarding recent media coverage on the Mass Effect ‘sex scene’ controversy.
As I write this introduction I do not know how long it will take for me to get everything down that I want to. I know that I will talk about my own gaming experience, where I started, why I became a console gamer, why I moved to the PC, games that had a profound effect on me and probably more. During this series of articles (which I will eventually put together as a full feature somewhere) I intend to talk about piracy, digital distribution, hardware, the media effect on the industry, and maybe some other pieces.
Right now I want everyone who reads this to know that I won’t be putting up a section a week, there may be length gaps between postings on this feature or there may be very short gaps. I may have some articles cross over with one another, tie two topics into one article; I am really not sure at the moment.
This will be a journey, and I hope you who read my blog will join me on this journey and provide me with feedback and ideas on what to talk about. If any of you have something you really want me to discuss just leave me a comment and I will do my best to address it. Onwards then I go.
