Gamers with Jobs takes a shot at console-ization

There's a neat little editorial over at Gamers with Job focusing on why consoles are killing off the quality of PC games, including mentioning the incredibly dumbed down Deus Ex 2 as well as the recent thing about Black Isle getting closed:

Let’s talk about Fallout 3 for a moment. More particularly, let’s talk about the possibility that Fallout 3 and Black Isle were laid on the sacrificial altar with their throats cut and entrails spilled so the console game Brotherhood of Steel 2 could get a transfusion. I’d be happy to hear anyone argue that Brotherhood of Steel 2 is going to be a higher quality game than Fallout 3 would have been, if only so I could mock you in public and perhaps even slap you around with a wet fish. But even I would have a hard time taking the position that, even if it proves to be a monumentally inferior game, Brotherhood of Steel 2 would have made less money than Fallout 3. Fallout 3 and the demise of Black Isle studios is the perfect example of how PC gaming is being beaten to death by mass market console sludge.​

Right on, E! Stick it to the Frenchman!
