Reminder: Update your PC info for the next round of statistics updates

By - | Views: 12,702

This is your once a month reminder to make sure your PC information is correct on your user profiles. A fresh batch of statistics is generated on the 1st of each month.

You need to be logged in to see when you last updated your PC info!

You can see the statistics any time on this page.

PC Info is automatically purged if it hasn't been updated, or if you don't click the link to remain in for 2 years. This way we prevent too much stale data and don't hold onto your data for longer than required. If this is still correct and it has been a long time since you updated, you can simply click here to continue to be included. If this isn't correct, click here to go to your User Control Panel to update it!

Could you do store statistics again ? That was very interesting and that would let see the big trend. I'm very curious about the relative result of GoG vs Steam and Steam vs 3rd market store and how many Linux User use Epic + Wine (still have not dare doing that despite the free games, I'm still shy about using proton too extensively).

Not opposed to it but it would need careful wording, since this is something that people don't update every month.

Happy to take suggestions.

"What's your favourite store to buy a game?"
[ ] Steam
[ ] GoG
[ ] Humble
[ ] Itch.io
[ ] 3rd party Steam key sellers
[ ] other

"Favourite" wouldn't be subject to frequent changes.
Maby one should add something like ("it it would be available at all stores") or the like.

Who the hell is this absolute mentalist? Utmost respect, if not trolling...

Edit to add... holy cow, there are THREE such people. Three. smh.

How about a checkbox instead of a radio button? Because I'm not buying only in one store, though there might be the most favorite one.

But if the question would be more like: where did you buy games in the last month? And then you select the stores you used to buy something. And with buy I mean actually paying money, not grabbing the free EGS game. This could reflect if a store became suddenly interesting, because of an exclusive has been released (e.g. Stadia). Of course there should be a way for Linux users to use this store and play its games. But I think atm they are all somehow useable (lutris, heroic, Chrome browser)

What do you think about an option for subscriptions? Stadia Pro, Geforce Now, EA Access, etc.?

Wouldn't be a PC Info survey anymore, but well ;)

Problem with that is the same as with the wine/proton questions that used to be there. It changes too frequently to keep the data somewhat reliable. For that sort of thing you'd be better off running a periodic poll to get the view of the moment.

The favourite store question has issues too though. Humble serves as a both a key reseller for all stores and a distributor of DRM free builds. But at least it's not likely to change frequently.

How could you not recognize my ASCII art checkboxes?!? :D

This - obviously! :p - is what a radio button looks like:

Yes, but it would have the problem the WINE question had back in the days: It would need frequent updates by the users, which most people probably won't do.

It was a good job I wasn't drinking my coffee when I read this. :)

I really did laugh out loud.

I did recognize the checkboxes, but the question "What's your favourite store to buy a game?" implied for me only one possible answer, which would result in a radio button ;)

Hmmm, I thought the monthly friendly reminder would help with that. At least I'm quickly cross checking every time if my answers are still up to date. And I'm sure everybody else does so too
