Yeah really, do I press the button or pull on it?

I'm confused.

As long as they make money doing fairly complicated games, there will be studios doing that. Even now there are companies doing PC-only advanced strategy games like for example Paradox Interactive and Matrix Games.

Sure there might be less blockbuster big number games. But maybe the easy going crowd isn't really interested in buying a lot of games, and most are really happy with their Wii and few games they got. Therefore there isn't a huge end of the rainbow pot of gold market that these guys seems to believe exist. Hope it backfires and the easy mode idiot game pushing idiots get burned.

This is very true, at least for strategy and RPG games, but I think a lot of us would be sad to see the death of larger budget games in those genres with any intelligence.

I like retro-style indie games with small budgets, but I don't want them as my only gaming outlet.

Indeed, the "blockbuster" productions have already moved to consoles in large. But maybe we will see a shift back sometime, hard to predict the future of gaming.

Saw that Lionhead looks for PC-people now, maybe Fable will be converted to PC.

Why not keep all the casual dumbed down games on the consoles anyways? Isn't this what the wee wee was made for?

Because the market for Casual Games on the PC is far larger then that of consoles. Have you ever seen PopCap Series? Heck Farmville on Facebook is one of the most popular casual games in the world... The PC is more popular platform for casual games then consoles so stop crying when they announce casual centric games for PC, its not shifting to that style... it's already there.

You are talking about two different types of games here so you really don't have a point. Fable 3 is not Peggle you tard. :P IMO a casual game is not a something that takes hours to complete or even has an ending.

I usually do not involve myself with such PC gamer bravado, but I literally have no interest at all in Fable 3 on PC, not only because we never got 2, but also because it just will likely not be a game I would enjoy playing at all.
