Why Zynga? Why not EA? Why not Activision? Why not iD Softwareblah blah

Because I don't want any of them to close, despite their flaws.

I don't even understand what your argument is anymore. Is it that I secretly hate the casual market but give popcap some kind of pass? I didn't call for the closure of any other casual studio and last I checked there were way more than two devs. Popcap doesn't hold a candle to Zynga when it comes to stealing ideas.

Casual market ok, Zynga bad. Are we done here now? I certainly am.

Basically, yes. There was a lot of people here who consider casual gaming to be beneath them, no? Am I wrong on this point?

What do you mean "give PopCap some kind of pass"? If you don't know why I think PopCap are getting a free pass, you haven't read the thread. PopCap gets a pass because they're now seen as EA's victim. As mentioned before, criticising EA isn't EA bashing, but rewriting history to make EA look bad is EA bashing.

You might want a word with Verno about bringing up everything bad companies have done. I'm not saying Zynga aren't bad. I'm not saying PopCap is worse than Zynga.
