That wouldn't force everyone...just Windows users. Linux has had x64 versions available for quite sometime now as well.

I skipped the advantages/disadvantages part because that's all been well-documented. However, if someone is a serious enough gamer to base their OS choice on it, then this gamer would likely be using 4 GB or more memory, and should already be using a x64 OS. Someone that serious about gaming wouldn't be using only 2 GB or 3 GB of memory. Some games can chew that much up alone, and would seriously impact the performance of that game.
