The Future Looks Dull

Natalie Alderman, who may be an average social gamer, points out in this post on the Guardian that "dull", "unchallenging", and "not particularly innovative", games are very popular. This, she explains, is because they are played by people who use social networking sites like Facebook.

Alderman goes on to suggest that the ranks of gamers will be swelled by people "who haven't previously thought of themselves as gamers" and, while this growth will result in a more diverse range of people playing games, "more diversity doesn't necessarily mean all the games will be great".

Can't wait!
