    "Softonic is a website that I credit with saving my marriage. Before Softonic many of the other sites I used to download free PC games had other attatchements with them that included loads and loads of porn, My wife would constantly have porn popping up on the screen when she was using the computer as you can imagine this caused lots of problems for my marriage. Now thanks to Softtonic the games I download are porn free and my wife is a happy woman. "

DID YOU KNOW?

DId you know that the tongue-in-cheek term Glorious PC Gaming Master Race was invented to satirize elitists who claim playing games on a customized PC is way above playing consoles? British comic and video game developer Ben Croshaw invented the term in a video game review of The Witcher, where he called out the PC gaming community for their continuous complaint on the delay of the release of the game because of its' porting to gaming consoles. "It was intended to be ironic, to illustrate what I perceived at the time to be an elitist attitude among a certain kind of PC game," said Croshaw about the review. Nowadays, the term has become the cry of the PC Gaming Community, calling console gamers as filthy peasants because of their limitations in choices of games and the inferior specifications of their hardware.

But recently another race has come to dominate the industry, with mobile gaming and its skyrocketing journey to the top of the food chain. According to market analyst, Global Games Market Report stated that mobile gaming will continue its rise and will become $100-billion business by itself in 2021 when it will rule the gaming business and eat up 60% of revenue.
