Future blames games - but did it fail to innovate as the world changed?

MCV - Future Publishing says the depreciated games market has hurt its growth. I'm not convinced that's true.

In fact, think hard about the notion that games overall are 'challenged' - at a time when the addressable audience for all kinds of games is bigger than ever - and the whole thing feels disingenuous. It's correlation, not causation.

It's not the first time this year the magazine and website publisher warned games were a challenge. When similar remarks came in May I chalked it down to a pre-E3 lull. (Culture)

lol, I love how the one thing everyone seems to take away from their college psychology course is correlation, not causation.
