They scape from complexity and Angry birds is the epiphany of something basic that gone massive because you don't think/act like you do on daily basis you just only have to calculate the angle in a way that silly bird will hit those green pigs.
Is getting back to basics like i said, many people miss using their imagination. (and i will not add to this equation read some book)
Atari/commodore era for example, all the games had the same graphics = black/white and dots and was funny as hell to play that.
You give people many options, they will get more confused.
If you reduce that spectrum of options to some basic ones they will work and relax faster.
Agreed again. This also explains why Mario games are so popular since the NES days.
