BioWare on Casual/Mature Games

BioWare: Mature industry can drop violence from games is a quote from this morning's BioWare interview. It seems they are not talking about hardcore gamers here, it sounds more like they are talking about expanding to a more casual audience. Specifically Dr. Greg says: "I think once we've got the breadth of audience available to us, there could be really good opportunities created by different people coming to games that are story-driven."

I'd never noticed the casual gaming crowd until Overlord 2 came out, oddly enough. It's an easy game with a couple of puzzles that can get a bit frustrating, but the reaction on the codemasters forum has been ridiculous. Constant posts asking for solutions to the simplest of puzzles, screams that the game is bugged when people can't solve them. Threats to return the game because they didn't include an option to skip the puzzles, all sorts of things.

It's the first time I've really encountered casual gamers and I can't say the petulance and sheer lack of patience on display makes me glad they're apparently the future of PC gaming.
