Anyway, I hope Fargo is sincere about what he's saying. However, having been a witness to the old breed of major PC game developers abandoning their bread and butter franchises to chase the mass market in the early 1990s, I'm less than convinced that it was nefarious men in suits in far away big cities that were the initial cause of the problem, though that certainly was an issue once it had become a mantra in the industry that development had to reach out to the largest possible demographic.
Yeah, because it's immoral to enjoy more than one type of game, right? Or maybe people have just been able to settle for lesser quality RPGs.

If I ever find myself in the midst of a famine, I'll not accept anything less than a steak, lest CraigCWB think less of me.
