"It's arrogant to say, but I think that most of the games on the Xbox and PC aimed at hardcore gaming add complexity but they don't actually have depth." (c) John Vechey
Very-very-very interesting statement(and related not only to XBOX, but also to PS3, Wii and PC). We have complexity, but we have no depth. It's a reason why last few years I am almost stopping playing seriously. Games are either old or shallow. And personally I do not believe in reborn of games with deep gameplay. Time is over. Now I am playing for fun, for easy fun.

This interview is dripping with irony. The founder of PopCap games, home of tons of shallow time wasters, says that console games lack depth. (Which he defines as "extra characters and extra powerups"). He then praises the Wii based on the controller (I'm assuming he isn't saying the Wii has tons of titles with "depth", because that would be funny.)

The title imply all games, the quote "most of the games" does not.

He actually says most console and PC games have no depth, even the so-called "hardcore" ones.
