Are you saying that casual gaming is welcomed here? Are you saying that PopCap have been respected here?

Edit: that didn't take long. Once again, Verno was the voice of reason but look at netnerd's comments, and NegaDeath's to see how this is changing to the latest casual gaming baddie.

That was only 2 months ago, AFTER EA bought them, and AFTER they announced they were firing George Fan. The EA virus was already infecting them. Please show thread after thread of Popcap hate from two years back or earlier.

Also, hatred of Zynga has less to do with the fact that they make shitty casual games than the fact that they see some cool indie game, and force their workers to work 18 hour days to make an identical copy in three months before the indy developer has gotten their legs. It's rank thievery that puts innovators out of business.

Popcap on the other hand has always been viewed as an innovator and respected for that by most people.

EDIT: After reading the entire thread, I see others have made my same points earlier and better.
