Why do people blame this problem on the "casual"? As if these players cannot apprecaiate quality, when every one of us was once a "casual" or inexperenced player?
I see it as the fault of the industry in underestimating the intelligence of inexperienced players, as if they need their hands held though a game. People wonder why third party sales tanked. Like do they really expect people to buy garbage?
I also find fault with the attitude of gamers as a whole, with their attitudes of eletism and contempt for "casual" or new players; with all the arguing and fighting over what machine is the most powerfull, which one is next gen, last gen, so on and so forth.
Edit: What bothers me is that Nintendo is expected to carry it alone, even though it isn't connected to a larger body, like Sony's and Microsoft's Gaming devisions are.
