Peter Molyneux: PC gaming in tatters

Posted on Monday, October 13 2008 @ 00:42:43 CEST by

Peter Molyneux, the brain behind games such as Populous, Dungeon Keeper and Black & White, said in an interview that he thinks PC gaming is "in tatters".
In an interview with Videogamer.com, the creator of many classic PC games, including Populous, Dungeon Keeper and Black & White, said that ‘if you look at the gamer market on PC, I'll be quite honest with you, it's in tatters.’ While admitting that ‘there are some high points like ‘Crysis and what Blizzard is doing,’ Molyneux said that ‘other than that you are restricted to The Sims and World of Warcraft, they seem to be dominating the PC side.’

Molyneux also discussed his feelings on DRM and copy protection, saying that he personally ‘hates’ any copy protection. ‘I hate typing in that number. I loathe it as a gamer,’ said Molyneux, adding that ‘it just makes me feel insulted. And I always lose the blasted manual anyway.’ However, he was cautions about jumping on the anti-DRM bandwagon, saying that the original limit of three authorisations in Spore didn’t ‘sound that bad,’ but added that he could still ‘understand people being very upset.’
