Does anyone play Casual Games anymore?

I'm curious just how popular or not casual games are to the average person. Like puzzle or arcade games, or many facebook games, things that don't have a lot of background/story/depth but are just a series of levels to beat/survive---maybe even riddle games?

An example would be this video:
Looks like the perfect stereotypical casual game yet it only has 10 downloads. Are casual games dead?

As for me, I do play them, but it's kinda half and half between those things and more in-depth games (read: big name games like Starcraft or Play Station).

Just here for the pie

People still play casual games, but the standard has risen. Say all you want about games like Candy Crush, they're highly polished. The game in the video you linked has terrible production values; many larger companies have moved in on the casual market and increased the quality standard way beyond that. If anything, this has attracted more people to the casual gaming market than the "hardcore" gaming market, you just don't hear discussion about casual games because they aren't games that are made for discussion.

In all seriousness though. I might play a flash game or something that isn't as 'hardcore' as the usual games I play. This might include anywhere from Newgrounds or Armor Games' lineup, or very rarely Bejeweled on Facebox.

Who remembers Bejeweled? :awesome:

Personally, I don't. But I think many people do, including some of the people I know.

I'm on level 488 of candy crush saga. I love casual games honestly. :awesome: My favorite is Bubble Spinner.

I have less and less time to game as the years pass, and I simply cannot keep up in a competitive game with other players who have more free time and dedication than I do.
