XBOX kinect is the fastest selling gadget of all time. It has sold around 10 million copies. PS move isn't doing terribly either, with around 9 million units sold.
more and more games are indeed focusing on the casual market, the idea is everyone and their dog should be able to do it.
a sideeffect is that even the more hardcore and oldschool games are getting more and more easier remakes.
I'm not really concerned with difficulty. That's why there are difficulty settings in any half-decent game. Me, I go for storytelling and immersion. THAT's what's really getting lost.
That's part of why I didn't like Pokemon B/W. It felt more like a step by step process than a journey.
who needs a story as long as you can shoot on things that are allready dead.
but i agree with doomyoshi, i also used to spend way more time on hard games then i am now, i guess i'm 'spoiled' by all the easy games and once a game gets hard i'll usually just pick up an easier game unless the story is REALY good. (or the gameplay). but it does sadden me that so few games have a good story anymore.
