Markets change. Today's gamers simply didn't own PCs ten years ago.
They couldn't afford them. There were gamers back then, but they
were not mom-and-pop. They were business people who primarily used
computers for business, and sometimes used them for games.

The demand for high-speed game graphics made mincemeat of the
old-guard computer graphics market, too.
