Video Games Are Too Boring, Says EA

EA Chief Says Video Games Are BoringAs a general rule, you don't want to insult the product you're trying to sell ... but don't try to tell that to John Riccitiello, CEO of video game factory Electronic Arts. Riccitiello is quoted in the Wall Street Journal as saying that most video games are boring and that companies need to do more to appeal to the casual gamer. "We're boring people to death and making games that are harder and harder to play."

The comments come just shortly ahead of this week's E3 video game conference where video game makers are able to show off, hock their wares and generally pat themselves on the back. Riccitiello complained not only about the difficulty of games, but about the sameness. He charged that game makers roll out sequels to games without adding or improving on the original formula.

Given that EA is the largest game publisher in the world, perhaps it and its new game hating CEO can lead a video game revolution.
