DSOG feature 2

Editorial: DSOGaming Turns Four Years Old

It’s been four years since DSOG opened its digital doors to PC gamers. Four years of hard work, and we plan to be here for a long, long, long, loooooooong time. During these past four years, there have been a lot of interesting events. From users cursing and accusing us for spreading rumours (we were the first that revealed Warner Bros’ plans to release Mortal Kombat 9 on the PC) to others thanking for bringing the hammer down on Ubisoft’s awful PC ports.

Looking back at our first Editorial, we kind of feel proud of ourselves for keeping our word on delivering great content. And while the first Editorial claimed that we’d be covering consoles… well… that’s never going to happen. DSOGaming was, is, and will always be a PC gaming website.

DSOGaming has been growing and getting bigger each and every year. Right now, we have over 650K monthly visitors. Our lifetime unique visitors are over 10 million, while our total visitors are around 17 million. And since we’ve always shared our stats with you, our readers, below you can view our lifetime stats.

And that is that. We could go on and on about how we were able to be successful, about how and why we’ve thinking outside the box these past four years, about our hidden messages that only a small numbers of our readers have been able to find out,  about the fact that we’re truly an independent website… but what would be the point of it?

All we can say is that we are not going anywhere. DSOGaming will continue bringing you PC game news, as well as PC Performance Analysis articles and First Impressions. Moreover, and as we’ve promised in our first Editorial of 2015, we’ll be definitely adding an AMD GPU in our articles.

We’ll also make sure to be as objective as we can. Or at least as subjective as PC gamers can. And we will criticize each and every company. See, the fact that we are independent puts us in a really weird position. While some publishers may have already blacklisted us (for their own reasons, we don’t really care), we are free to write about everything.

For example, everyone bashed Ubisoft for its Watch_Dogs false advertisement. However, when CD Projekt RED did the exact same thing with The Witcher 3, a lot of websites decided to overlook what they have been criticizing so fanatically. We can tell you that if it was EA instead of CDPR, everyone would be bashing them. The fact that those websites refused to – at least – mention this ‘downgrade-ation’ (yes, the game does indeed look gorgeous but that’s not the point here) proves our point; whatever you read here at DSOGaming is 100% ours, represents our views, and has not been ‘forced’ to us by anyone.

Enjoy your stay!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
