In any event, there is "consolized" stuff but I mostly see it as technical. A bad UI on PC meant for gamepads for instance, or Deus Ex: Invisible War's tiny little areas and frequent load times.

Stuff like "every RPG needs to be real time!" though is more about appealing to a wider audience and that takes place on every platform. I don't think that trend reversing anytime soon and it will probably get worse and worse… even after DA2 got spanked in sales and reviews Bioware employees are still talking about streamlining and appealing to more people on their forums, they ain't giving up.

Thank god for indies!
