Default Perhaps its time to stop covering Bioware

December 2nd, 2011, 10:43
There's obiously a market for cRPG's that haven't disappeared. What exactly captures the spirit of cRPG's is difficult to pinpoint but I believe one of it's strengths are the diversity. cRPG's cater to many minds, the minmaxer, the grinder, the socializer, the stretegic mind, the puzzlesolver and the creative. These mindsets do not cease to exist due to market trends. They did not cease to exist when DOOM got popular.

Bioware are not a contender in the evolution of the cRPG market. They aren't a prophet for the new direction the cRPG's need to take. They aren't a voice in what's hot and what's not. They simply cater to a different mindset now with a different direction that is separated the future of cRPG's.

I believe it's time for RPGWatch and other RPG-community websites to accept that this is the case and stop covering them unless it's strictly RPG-related (which doesn't include Biowares recent opinions about why RPG's are no longer their direction).

Let them go.
