The Tragic State Of PC Gaming
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 38 comments

Gamesindustry.biz has posted an excerpt of a Eurogamer interview with Lionhead's Peter Molyneux. As part of the interview Molyneux discussed the stagnation he sees in PC games and the detrimental impact of the World of Warcraft and The Sims franchises

"There's an enormous amount of gaming happening with PopCap, Big Fish and Reflective.

"The fascinating thing is when they first started, all these games came out like Peggle and Mystery Files and Alice Greensleeves and Diner Dash, and it felt quite exciting. There was a lot of innovation going on. Okay, there weren't great graphics, but there was innovation.

"In my view, that has completely stopped. They're doing the same game over and over again with a different wrapper. It's like a mini-universe in itself which is emulating what's happening in our industry," he added.

"The second thing is, you've got The Sims and World of Warcraft sucking all the air out of the PC market. It's just incredible," he said.
