I'm confused? The OP repeatedly refers to himself as a unix "fan". Clearly he doesn't intend the term as an insult. Unless you think the OP is some sort of "dirt-eating Tauron" himself. I think you're just trying to create a fight no one was looking for.
Heck they even stock 2600 which is essentially a whole magazine of such articles.
PC gaming will certainly never die it may just evolve away from the types of games that play best in a console environment. But I don't think I'm alone in believing that for a game like DOOM or Half-life there is no better controller than a keyboard and mouse and I guarantee these games look better at 1024x768 than they do on the 800x600 most televisons are limited to. Don't get me wrong I love my gamecube and PS2 but I still boot my PC to windows to play KOTOR, CIV, and HL2.
