is casual gaming ruining games

computer games are big business.and all the big money is now keeping people playing who did not normaly play.what they call the casual gamers.research has shown the casual gamer dosnt want much difficulty in a game..this is why we get the caddy help in tiger woods.racing lines in all racing games.if a 6 year old gets wsc real snooker they will get a 147 break in a few days.how long is it until all games are like fable 2 where you just play through a  story.where we press  a button and the computer just plays the game for you.anyway thats  enough whingeing..im off to blast some zombies.

Whats wrong with zombies?

you must die expired zombie im coming to get you. games have turned me into a serial killer.

How can you kill something that is already dead? I will let you ponder over that one.

One thing I will say, casual gamers have ruined the multi-player community.

Before MW:2 come out you could hop in a game, play with a group of strangers and have a laugh.

Now you get thugs on there raping their threats at you......

Both LA NOIRE and Portal 2 were spoiled massively because they are far too easy in a big part, to pander to the casual market.

 

OP has a point.

I'm not so sure with L.A Noire, because I am a terrible detective as far as that game goes.

i would love to debate with you all night about zombies. mr expired zombie but my mam has just told me its past my bedtime. i dont know why she still treats me like this - im 34 now.

I do love zombies!

Games are currently approximately 10x easier than they were 10 years ago. This means that the easier modes are even easier and the hardest difficulties are appropriately 10x easier than they should be.

Games are getting easier, its only very rarely you actually get a game these which is actually difficult. And they are few and far between because people in this era dont like challenge, they want instant gratification at minimal effort.

 

You would have thought that as gaming as an industry went onwards the games themselves would be getting more difficult as people have been playing them for longer and are thus getting better at them. Strangely though people are getting better and games are getting easier. Thats a fact.


(10x may be a made up figure)

Really?

I always found older games easier. There was no real AI. Everything was all pretty pre-programmed. All you need was a good memory, and most games were a piece of cake.
