I sincerely got a problem with the philosophy of 'a game for everybody'. Super Mario Bros. wasn't a 'game for everybody', and yet it changed gaming forever. It looks like Nintendo is trying to do (force) something which can only happen spontaneously and without any effort. Taoists will understand what I am talking about.

Day by day I get more disappointed in the way things are going in the 'games world'. And I don't think I'll get a Wii U because of it.

Master Wizzy Don't give up on the Wii U. Look I am retro fanatic like you and I will hold on dearly to the "good ol days" of the NES and SNES but Nintendo is sure to have some great upcoming gaming experiences for us.

Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I'd say, don't hold yer breath :p Only a very few (dearly beloved) titles prevented me from selling my Wii for the second time (I bought one again when Metroid Prime Trilogy and Resident Evil (the Gamecube re-issue) were released), namely Donkey Kong Country Returns, Twilight Princess and the aforementioned games. But man, it's just not the same 'great' thing anymore when buying new games. For me, the real magic died out for quite some time now. And I really have the feeling that I am pursuing a carrot on a stick; looking for that something which surpasses gaming's golden age. It just will not happen, because it cannot happen....

Lately I began comparing all of my Wii titles with the classic ones I have on the Virtual Console, and came to the conclusion stated above. I loved Other M, but it's just not Super Metroid. I loved Skyward Sword, but it's just not Link's Awakening or A Link To The Past. And Galaxy 2 is fantastic, but it just isn't as mind-blowing as Mario 3 was. I should have kept my NES, Game Boy and SNES and my large amount of games instead of selling them in 1997. So, yeah, I'm disappointed in myself, for fooling myself for so long now. But I'm also glad that I have come to this conclusion.

Games also have become too mainstream in my opinion. 20 years ago, I was proud to be a gamer (the term 'hardcore' and 'casual' didn't even exist), but now...almost everybody's into it. It is part of my character, that when things get too casual, my enjoyment of being part of something which was initially (relatively) small and more personal/intimate, fades away, and I tend to leave it behind without question. This has been on my mind for some time now, and I don't want to bother people with my personal stuff, but there it is...
