For the record Popcap owns and always has and I've rarely seen anyone air an opinion to the opposite here. Plus when you're making the accusation I'd say the onus is on you, not everyone else but whatever, I'll leave you to...whatever this is then

I posted this as an edit to my earlier post but since you since posted this, it seems applicable here. The onus should be on me, but it's self evident. I thought. This is the crux of why I'm continuing this pointless debate: people seem shocked that I'm suggesting casual gaming wasn't very popular and that genuinely baffles me.

What are you hoping to gain here? I really don't get the point to be honest. Do you want everyone to just bring up every bad thing every company has done to be fair and balanced? Do you work for EA or Zynga? If not who cares? People will never be 100% balanced or fair, that's not human nature and you're not excluded from that either.

Beats me. I wanted to highlight the same snobbery and hypocrisy that floods this site when something that might have a console version gets released. Turns out, hypocrites don't like being called out. To be fair, there are those who did like some PopCap games, more than I thought.

I don't work for EA or Zynga and have never had anything to do with either apart from being an occasional customer. I may never be 100% balanced or fair, but I'm damn well going to try to be. I don't see what the "bring up every bad thing" has to do with things.

On a larger scale, I'm saddened by the way this community is going. Maybe I'm just getting old, but the saying seems very true: never read comments on the internet.
