PC Gaming is Steadily Sliding Toward Irrelevance With Mobile Gaming Taking Over





If you consider yourself an avid PC gamer, let me head you off at the pass before you think I'm either attacking you or gloating about PC gaming's rather dim future. While I write about mobile games, I've also been playing PC games since the mid-80s. Before I got my iPad and my iPhone, my gaming was 90% PC 10% Nintendo console (my first PC was a 6 Mhz 286 Televideo with an incredible 22 MB hard drive and a glorious high-resolution monochrome screen). I've always had a desktop computer, and I still have a pretty-beefy gaming PC with a Steam library that would take years to play through.
And yet, I know that gamers like me aren't the rule anymore but, rather, the exception. So, when I read a recent NPD report that details how younger gamers are moving away from gaming on a home computer and moving in droves to mobile gaming, I wasn't at all surprised. While many detest this shift towards mobile gaming because those games aren't "hardcore" enough, even they find it difficult to deny that it's taking place. After all, when's the last time you saw a 5-year old talk about his computer games"
Why do I think PC gaming is steadily on course to meet the dinosaurs" Well, partly from reports like this recently-published NPD report, Kids and Gaming 2015. According to the report, 63% of kids ages 2-17 now use mobile devices for gaming. Not surprising, I know. However, when you consider that only 45% of kids ages 2-17 games on home computers, down an amazing 22% since 2013, you can see the definite and pronounce shift. The decline is most pronounced among those ages 2-5, the literal future of gaming. Before you say maybe those PC gamers are shifting to consoles, console gaming has also seen a decrease, although not as dramatic as the one in PC gaming. As industry analyst Liam Callahan states, the largest and most surprising shift in the 2015 gaming ecosystem is that for kids, the entry point for gaming is no longer PC gaming but, instead, mobile gaming. Interestingly, mobile gaming has remained relatively steady in terms of percentage of users, but kids' engagement and time spent on these devices has gone up, with 41% saying that they spend more time on their devices than a year ago (the average time spent on these devices has climbed to 6 hours per week). Now, if you happen to either have kids or work with kids, you won't be surprised by these numbers since you've probably seen how most kids refuse to put their mobile devices down for any reason. Add to that how mobile game developers increasingly try to keep younger players playing for longer periods of time, and the increase in average time spent on mobile devices makes sense.
Part of the reason behind this dramatic drop in PC gaming is, I think, how more and more households aren't buying a desktop PC for work (almost a necessity during the previous decade) and, instead, either buy a laptop, a tablet, or a tablet-laptop hybrid. I got into PC gaming because my dad (like many dads) bought...
