    These guys did NOTHING for PC Gaming, MS, Nvidia and Activison all abandoned them years ago. They were worthless and I'm glad to see them finally admit that.

    "The PCGA was originally formed in 2008 with a stated goal of helping to reverse a trend where PC game sales were falling, but in their explanation of the name change they seem be admitting failure and moving on, saying that "as the PC is no longer the most dominant gaming form factor" they will now also embrace mobile gaming."

    Just because there's millions of trash mobile games produced twice a day,doesn't make it the "Dominant" platform.

    Plebs everywhere these days.

    The mobile gaming market is easily one of the most insufferable and rage inducing markets around. Everything is pay to win, full of ads and, or full of micro-transactions. Then add in the 100,000 clones (Mad Bird instead of Angry Birds etc) of every game.. F-it.. I haven't bothered with mobile gaming in years once I saw where the trend was going.

    PC was never the most dominant gaming form factor, nor was it ever in danger of disappearing.

    PC may not disappear, but the effort put into ports by some 'former' devs seems to be disappearing.

    Probably because hardware is getting better, forcing people to upgrade, even if they could run the game with some optimizations on their old hardware.

    Meh.

    And as said above, when I saw I need to do some 'root' thingy on my phone, and NOT legitly disable ads in everywhere like I can on my PC I just returned my phone to my dad and told him to never buy a mobile device for me ever again. Some how the ads and all those things don't piss others in my family.

    They should just stick to that "mobile gaming" crap... I haven't seen even a single game wanting me to own a portable gaming capable device since my original Nintendo Game Boy. Those were the days...
    But with all those games being produced for iOS and android I'm happy the greedy people with no sense for a truely good game f*ck off and screw over those 14 year olds now.
