What did you expect? Millions of people with high end computers?

Seriously, look at all those AAA PC Exclusives we get that's not a RTS


Where? I don't see any. Oh yeah, there's none.

I think that was his point.

I've yet to take time to take a Steam survey. I'd rather play games.


Yeah... it's not a survey that you answer questions to, Steam just records what hardware you have.

Umm, yeah. I have a 5 year old PC with a mid-range video card upgrade from 3 years ago(hardware failure on the old one's part). Of course it's not up to next-gen console specs.

Does the author of the site seriously think the majority of the people upgrade their PCs yearly or something?

Also, Chess is a game of skill much like all gameplay only video games. So it is pretty mindless if you think about it.-mtjormitch

Was about to say this, the second you have Steam on your computer, Valve has your hardware information, no "survey" needed to be taken.
And yes of course most PC users have weak computers, the most popular games are LOL, WoW, CS and TF2 right? Anything can run those

I'll be damned. So every person who logs into Steam once gets their specs recorded? Even the ones that log in and realize they can't play any games because their hardware sucks?

Pretty much
There are a bunch of indies and older games that pretty much any computer can run

Steam offers a lot of game that do not have high requirements. Of course there are tons of people on there that have a system weaker than the newest consoles, as do most people. That is not really all that shocking.
