On occasion some have tried to claim that PC gaming is dying off, that soon it will completely disappear. However, according to NPD it is just the opposite. Actually PC gaming is exceeding $1 billion annually.

Apparently, typical gaming websites draw in women over 35 years old and MMO players are typically under 35. Which isn’t exactly shocking news. The top MMOs are WoW, RuneScape, Lord of the Rings Online, Final Fantasy XI and City of Heroes.

For the gaming websites Pogo.com, Realarcade.com, Bigfishgames.com and a couple others. The information is based on data gathered from October 2007 to March 2008.
