There's an older guy, about late 40s/early 50s that lives next door to me, I see him and talk with him every now and again when I go out for a cigarette. Earlier, he was talking about how back in his day everyone used their PCs just for work, but now it's just to play games. He wasn't happy lol. Would you agree?

Absolutely not. Almost every single job you can get in a first world country requires computer usage, usually almost nothing BUT computer usage. Very, very few people play games on their computer by comparison

So any thoughts as to why you think he thinks that way?

He's one guy who didn't put much thought into it? Didn't think it through to the logical conclusion?

Maybe he meant at home? Overall there’s no way that gamers outnumber work PCs.

It makes sense if your considering only computers at home, and not the ones used at work specifically.

Either way it doesn't really matter, since more then for work and games.. Using it for porn is a far more universal truth in all times and places hohoho.

It's because these days nearly every household has at least a moderately capable PC in, whereas back in his day PCs were so expensive that not many people owned them for personal use, so they were much more common in office settings.
