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:
Letâ€™s talk about Fallout 3 for a moment. More particularly, letâ€™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. Iâ€™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!
