Brian Fargo talks Wasteland 2 and the future of PC gaming

John Gaudiosi | Jan. 22, 2013
Game industry veteran Brian Fargo sits down to chat about PC game development, his Kickstarter-funded Wasteland 2 game and the future of PC gaming.

What are your thoughts on PC gaming today?

For years, PC gaming has been declared dead and going away. And strangely enough, here we are and it appears to be stronger than ever, especially from a creative perspective. I look at crowd-funding, I look at the slate of titles that are coming out in the next year to two and they are more innovative and creative than I have seen in a long time. That's going to make you feel pretty good about the PC. It's really an open system, much more so than [home consoles] where it seems like we always see the same [kinds of games.]

You can't compete with the crowd, so as the PC continues to remain open I think we're going to continue to see more and more innovation there than anywhere else.
