i completely agree with the article i find that old systems such as NES, SNES, N64 are much more exciting..
I dont find them the LEAST bit entertaining, though on some level I understand why the OLD timers do <wink>.
I prever snappy graphics mixed in with amazing gameplay mechanics, not that I have anything against paper mario for what it is.
I am also of that 'era' but I prefer stuff like mp3C, SMG, COTT ( reminds me of jak and daxter and I LOVED that on the ps2 ) etc....
To each his own.
Wii successs proves, that you win even if your not the most powerful system on the market because gameplay is what hooks people, not neccessarily amazing grahpics ( even though I suspect most of us prefer a supreme combo thereof? )
