Gaming segment trends over the years

I know there is a gaming section but this covers all of them... how the revenue shares of the categories of gaming changed over time is interesting, as well as looking at where we are today. I'd assume this chart is in US$, but it is unclear to me given how it is written if this is only for US market, or worldwide, or other.

 

Console: seems relatively stable in recent years

PC: general growth, now bigger than console market

Mobile: greater growth, over half of total revenue

pretty much expected

 

PC and consoles are luxury items, but mobile phone is pretty much a necessity nowadays

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Compound that with the fact that most average people are very impulsive and not very good with their money, so an easily accessible device that's always with you + impulsive, bad-with-money person = lots of dosh spent on mobile-stuffs.

Hand, n. A singular instrument worn at the end of the human arm and commonly thrust into somebody’s pocket.

You kinda almost understand why EA tried the route it did with loot boxes in the past. They must have looked at the low effort mobile games with good monetisation models, and wondered why they're spending all that effort on a AAA title for lower return. Collecting gacha waifus is obviously where the money is at.

The date that matters to me is 1993 and Doom. Before Doom all the computer gamers I knew used Amigas. After Doom they used PCs.

I literally spent $1600 to play a game.

PCs should be government subsidized since those without them are at a disadvantage and that has been made worse by the current situation.

If EA actually put the time and effort into their waifus they probably would have succeeded but instead the gave use Mass Effect Andromeda.

I did when I was a business but I was thinking about poor kids that don't have a laptop or tabletop to study on.

On the local news in my area of the world there is a story at least once a week on this subject.  

 

To do my part by donating at least one PC a year to vocational education classes.
