Maybe by that he means less AAA games? Which is still fine by me, unless he means more browser and facebook games.

I'd like that. More middle-of-the-road games sounds just fine to me, I don't really need cinematic "experiences" in everything I play. >_>

So, short answer? F*** you, CliffyB! :o

He means smaller budgets targeted at smaller audiences, which is fine by me. Sometimes that will manifest itself as a shitty facebook puzzler, but other times it means Project: Eternity and Wasteland 2.

He is the ultimate mainstream developer aiming at the largest male audience possible, so he sees doom in current sales numbers trending toward gaming as a whole remaining somewhat niche. I don't blame him for being worried about his career and millions. At the same time though I can laugh and not agree, because I literally think the best thing to ever happen to the gaming industry would be all these publishers going out of business.

Middle of the road means boring and appealing to as many people as possible... the AAA games are the middle of the road ones.

What I mean by middle-of-the-road is basically somewhere between small-budget indies and AAA. So yeah, something like P:E or the upcoming Torment. >_>
This guy used be really cool but now he's just pathethic.

Ah yeah, that's mid-budget rather than middle of the road.

Sure, AA games like Amnesia, Chivalry or Mark of the Ninja are the type of things I hope to see from the games industry.

He might have meant the microtransaction-laden, Zynga style games though which I hope is not the path developers take, since Echo Bazaar was the only facebook game I liked and even it I couldn't play because of the "limited actions per day" style.

I don't give a fuck about Cliffy B, just release Jazz Jackrabbit on GOG plz!
I can't believe that they are still today peoples using the "if we get rid of used games/piracy/etc... prices will go down" silly argument.

The only time the industry managed, at least for some time to nearly get rid of piracy, not only the prices didn't go down but they even increase significantly. If piracy and second hand sales ever disappear the industry will either simply find another scapegoat or just use a BS excuse like that they didn't lower the price because instead they decided to increase the "quality".

Thinking that it would result in them lowering their price is naive at best; if anything I doubt we would see that many xx% of Steam or other sales if it wasn't for piracy and an attempt to fight it.
There would've been more mobile and PC games anyway because the recession and HD make it more difficult for high budget releases to be profitable anyway.
It's not nice to poke fun at the mentally ill.

Elenarie: EDIT: Battle.net sells first-party games only, yet it makes more money and has more users than GOG. Are we going to exclude that one because it doesn't sell third-party games?
Battle.net doesn't make money from selling games, it makes money from selling monthly subscriptions and virtual items.
