1eugenewrayburnSat 16th May 2009 'milking' Mario...the big 3 games, Metroid Zelda and Mario, that all you got?Meanwhile we have an industry where replaying the same 3 cards in your hand console in and console out is status quo. (GTA anyone???)So where is the consistency there? Also, when Nintendo DID make creative and origional franchises that could pull the wagon better than the old warhorses, people cried foul, and invented a casual narrative to discredit them....I tell you what, as a NES traditionalist, that breaks my heart. Here are my questions?Is it impossible for the new generation to appreciate NES style gaming on wii?Is it impossible for the new generation to appreciate games that give no time or thought to CG and stroytelling?Is it impossible for the new generation to appreciate games that do not fall over themselves to be counter culture, negative culture?I truly wonder these things, I feel a man apart on internet forums.....
