Finally glad to see a Dev get off the band wagon and say whats true. Little apps or Iphone games are not and never will kill the big triple A games and the thought of such is just laughable. Sure they make a good amount of money but the market they are appealing to is 100% different then that of the Triple A game market. It's like saying Books are killing Triple A games. Nothing can be further from the truth.

plenty of people have suggested that casual mobile games would destroy the more traditional gaming.

i couldn't agree less.
personally i think casual gaming will bring more people into gaming rather than stealing people away.

they'll play casual games when they wouldn't have considered games before, and then upon discovering they enjoy it they might look for more involving experiences.
which is where the more traditional gaming comes in.
