Indeed. And In my post, I said I don't care about a game's influence... I just care about the game itself.
Random tangent is random.
You are ignoring the fact that a game is influential because of the game itself.
Or.... you've misunderstood the implications of having a successful video game.
I said I don't care what effect a console has on the industry because I don't actively care about the industry, I just care what fun the console I intend to purchase is. Don't care, and don't believe certainly aren't the same thing.
If you truly believed in the importance of the industry, you'd care. Skyward Sword wouldn't be here if the industry didn't love Zelda.
