Tyler Bleszinski, older brother of Gears of War designer Cliffy B, and SportsBlogNation president, has expressed concerns that the success of Wii could have a negative effect on videogames for hardcore gamer like himself.
"My problem is what this new crowd appears to be drawn to. Games like Wii Sports, Wii Play and Cooking Mama have become some of the biggest sellers, and that is what has me worried. If these are the type of games that become blockbusters, then you can count on other gaming companies who cater to the more hardcore gamer-aka me and the milions of others who've been driving this business-to promptly change direction. If we've learned anything about videogame companies, it's that they all are quick to follow each other if one is successful with something."
