Directional methods have been considered to provide solid proof for the direct detection of dark matter. Gaseous time-projection-chambers (TPCs) are the most mature devices for directional dark matter searches although there still exist several challenges to overcome. This paper reviews the history, current challenges, and future prospects of the gaseous TPCs for directional dark matter searches.
