I take a walk to my local EB and look around the pc game shelf keeps shrinking and the amount of good releases are far and few between.

The software companies are trying to figure out what has happened to the pc game market and blame piracy for there problems.

Well that is not the problem the problem is fps have saturated the market most people are now sick of these games thus they don't buy them, the marketing guys have still to figure this out.

Most guys my age like rpg's and rts and make up a large portion of the market, the lack of rts and rpg shows in sales for past 2 years.

What they need to do is put out more variety instead of fps,fps fps,fps

Its been quite some time since i have seen a good rpg or rts still waiting to buy some.....

I would have bought Mass Effects (developed by BioWare), but EA's DRM for the game was excessive enough for me not to buy the game.

Maybe if EA decides to loosen the DRM or if it becomes available on STEAM, then I buy it (if I still have interest).

I'd include Stalker with oblivion lost installed in that list; but I think the retail stalker had way too much cut from it :( 

Oblivion lost really added a lot back to the game for me playing through the second time~
