I walked away from doing reviews because, after a while, I felt as if I was just picking on the Big Fish Games catalog, primarily, and not actually getting to play and review some really interesting games.
Yet, today I realized that this is how mediocre productions flood an industry and lower not only the expectations of consumers and the bar for creators. When a distributor with a large enough consumer based continues to release unimaginative and problematic games, it does so successfully because no one pays attention.
So I’ll pay attention. Perhaps we can share some thoughts on casual gaming, how developers and distributers should do better, and sharpen the tools that allow us to examine all types of media we consume.
Hold your crowbars high and let’s play some boring-ass HOGs!
