PC Gaming is in need of saving?
Yes & no. For a brief period of time, PC gaming was facing extinction caused mainly by the lack of reliable distribution of games thus leading to less games being published. When Steam finally managed to take root and become the defacto PC game seller the situation was remedied.
The new generation of consoles released being x86 in nature will probably boost PC gaming higher then ever before. We're already seeing exclusives launch for Console X and PC. I'm guessing exclusive will mean "exclusive for CONSOLE" from now on and will have a PC release no matter what. This might take some time but it is the direction the gaming scene is going in my opinion.
