Game addiction has become a major source of criticism for both PC games and console games alike, focusing on the potential for minors to be affected by violence and other objectionable content.
The game was originally distributed through the shareware distribution model, allowing players to try a limited part of the game for free but requiring payment to play the rest, and represented one of the first uses of texture mapping graphics in a popular game.
Personalcomputers have at times been superior to their equivalent video game consoles, and thus capable of playing more graphically sophisticated games and prompting the rise of entire genres such as the first person shooter.
Like console games, personalcomputergames primarily require a processing devices contained in a computer case, a display device in the form of a computer display, and input devices in the form of a keyboard and mouse by default to function.
Personalcomputergame are usually distributed using standard storage units for personalcomputers, such as compact discs and most recently, DVDs.
Personalcomputers, due mostly to input available from the keyboard, mouse, and third-party joystick peripherals, have been the home of genres that have never proved popular on video game consoles.
