Bill Roper Interviewed
7:25 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Total Video Games recently had the chance to sit down with Bill Roper of Flagship Studios and talk about the gaming industry. The interview covers a range of issues from the future of PC and console gaming to a brief mention of Flagship's upcoming game Hellgate: London.

Despite an image problem, Roper feels the PC platform still has a number of strengths:

The PC market appears to becoming smaller and smaller, with an almost “unsexy” image against the likes of the PS2; would you like to see a change in this perception and what can the PC giants do to continue enticing developers?

See, that’s what I am talking about! Seriously, the PC does suffer from not being a sexy platform although it is the leader in some areas of gaming. The MMORPG and RTS genres are unrivalled on the PC, and Internet play is still the domain of the home computer. Microsoft made a huge announcement when they hit one million XBOX Live players, but there are a host of individual PC games that have many times that number of players, and even paying subscribers. If you want to see where all the PC gamers are, just head online. This is still an area where PC games are setting trends and breaking new ground.
