This is like the game that defies all logic. It's a game that shouldn't exist in our reality.

Given the Kickstarter I'd argue it was the publishers defying reality. Also since budgets seem to outpace industry growth that probably makes this the truth of it.

Yup, exactly what I just said. Publishers are too focused on garbing casual gamers, trying to grab as many sales as possible that perfectly viable games are denied funding.

Nah, casual games as they're commonly defined are dirt cheap to make relatively. It's these big budget AAA games that are problematic, I guess that may be what you were thinking of with casual, but I think that's more "mainstream gamer", as in targeting the average person serious enough about gaming to get consoles at a minimum, not just the people who want to have quick fun in a web browser or on the phone.

Err, thats what I meant by Casual gamer.... Usually, Hardcore gamer refers to people who will play this type of niche game.

There is a middle ground between casual and Hardcore, though. As Eusis said, that's usually referred to as the "mainstream" gamer.

Anyways, I'm tempted to go play a bunch of Ys games since this topic popped up. I'm kinda lost in the first game, though...
