    I don't understand why people get so upset about casual gaming. It doesn't affect you as a person. If you don't like them, don't play them. I don't play casual games but my wife does. She also plays games like COD, Bioshock, and Dead Island. People should just play what they like and quit Bitchin about the rest.

    i agree with you. personally, i feel like, as long as the goods keep coming, i have no reason to take issue with casual games, as everyone should be allowed to play what they find enjoyable. but i think an issue for many 'hardcore' types is that of resources. there's only so much time and money. quality can tend to take a back seat to making moneys. just look at what happened to rare (seriously, what happened to them?). there's also the idea of 'peeing in the pool'. it's like music; i mean, i'm glad that just anyone can buy a recorder, some instruments, and post their art on the internet for the masses, but holy shit has that diluted the overall quality of what's available. in short, i agree that people overreact on casual games' behalf, but that doesn't mean it isn't contributing negatively to gaming(as a hobbyists' pursuit, mind you) in some ways.

    I'm playing Ni no Kuni at home, but when I'm out doing laundry I play games on the iPad that only take a few minutes, and are made by companies that don't make console games, and therefore don't take any resources away from them. Playing casual games when there are full size ones nearby seems a little silly, but there's a ti me and place for them.
