New Nexon CEO: Mobile games 'letting consumers down'

Jef Reahard

New Nexon boss Owen Mahoney had harsh words for mobile game makers at last week's Game Developers Conference.

"A third of what we've done in the last few months is Flappy Bird clones. We're letting consumers down," Mahoney told Venture Beat. "I know that, because as a consumer, I really want to play a different kind of game than just a casual, short-format game. I want to play a more immersive experience."

Mahoney believes that mobile devices and PCs will eventually converge, and he said that Nexon is focused on developing games -- and acquiring a North American IP -- with that in mind.
