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.

This isn't about casual gaming as a whole though, its about Popcap and EA. People don't just blanket hate all casual gaming either, that's another general comment that ignores specific things and companies that people don't like in the casual gaming market. I hate like 90% of the casual gaming market because it is honestly tripe with no design ambition or original thought but that doesn't mean I hate everything casual gaming.

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. 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.

You didn't really do any of that though. Something bugged you and you said something really broad and inaccurate that you should've just walked back instead of digging your heels in. There's nothing wrong the community here either, go back 10 years and you will find just as many troll posts and all of the other colorful parts of the internet in general. Lumping everyone in with those is a bit frustrating and just helps create the messes you're criticizing. If there's a problem with Blues remember that you're a part of it, I'm a part of it and so on.

Geez I remember reading the site 4-5 years ago when most of the PC devs took off for console land, port quality was atrocious if they arrived at all and every second article seemed to be announcing the death of the PC. Rose tinted glasses my friend

Anyways we've given this topic way more attention than it deserves so with that I'm off to sleep.
Playing: XCOM 2, Diablo 3
