Square Enix chats bollocks about 'casual' games

0

The farcical "casual games" conversation has come up once again, with RPG publisher Square Enix looking to fully exploit the market. Not put off by the fact that a large amount of its non-traditional RPG games are pretty crap, Squeenix is ready to provide games that "empower" newcomers to the medium. We take it to mean that "empowering" means "easy for drooling retards to cope with."

"There is a large audience for casual titles that is growing all the time, we see other viable routes to this audience," explains President John Yamamoto. "Not just via conventional hardware but via Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and the WiiWare channel.

"We are very interested in providing casual titles through these channels. If entertainment is enjoyable and rewarding there shouldn't be any barrier to entry, and casual games have empowered consumers of all ages and abilities to feel like they can give gaming a go."
 
Look forward to Final Fantasy: Carnival Games coming to a Wii near you!
