Are video games being dumbed down?


You hear an awful lot about how games are being dumbed down to appeal to casual gamers or console gamers (two terms I do not particularly like). Is there any truth to this, though? A lot of the changes that are being made do streamline the game, but they don't necessarily make them any less challenging (though I can think of a few cases where that does happen). What do you think? Is there a real industry trend that is sacrificing game quality in the interests of accessibility and the bottom line?
