    Nintendo is giving the Wii, DS, and other Retro Systems the "cold shoulder"...

    It's saddening when you think about it... You don't see any new GCN, NES, SNES, NDS, etc. games, but lo and behold, "Nintendo's latest game for the"... What's the thing... Oh, yeah, "3DS." Hey, Nintendo! NOT EVERYONE OWNS A 3DS, AND HERE YOU ARE, GUILTING PEOPLE INTO BUYING STUFF WE DON'T NEED. What's wrong with the DS? If it's a camera you want, BUY A CAMERA! Need to draw? USE A PENCIL AND PAPER! Want to use the internet? USE A COMPUTER! We are entering the "Lazy generation". For example, I asked some random 3rd graders if they knew what paper was. Guess what their answer was? "What's paper?" Seriously? (FYI, I asked 20 random 3rd graders at Fashion Fair.) This is what our children have become... "What's a pencil?" "What is a Palm Pilot (These are 21 y.os who ask this one)" "Writing letters is hard" and the biggie, "What's the [beach, forest, mountains, etc.] like?"

    First nice name, second reason the make new consoles are when the are outdated and or other people in the market make something. If there was no Sony, Microsoft Nintendo might never have made a another system from nes and the days, but who knows.

    P.S You must have asked mentally retarded kids for those questions.

    P.S.S This generation is adapted around technology, so the sidetrack and stuff.

    Hope that helps.

    You're broke, and wish you had something fancy this Christmas. I think that's accurate enough.

    The lazy generation indeed... But really, don't blame the companies; indeed, blame the generation. The fans demand gimmicks, console designers give said gimmicks. Once it starts it begins to spiral out of control, and every console is trying to out-gimmick the other, among other things. So now we have game console, phones, etc. that do everything a computer can but worse at it, and a ton of other useless shit. If Ninty decided they wouldn't make the 3DS this crazy 3D shit, had no camera and no internet capability, they'd lose huge sales to the new PSP. I'm not saying everyone would go buy a PSP instead, but kids are always looking for the most shiny, multi-feature toy.

    Also, I'm calling bullshit on that paper question. >_> I mean, what the ****... I don't even understand how that's possible. Even I have more faith in humanity than to believe that without seeing it myself...

    Yes, lets stick with retro. Hell, let's apply that to cars. I'm sure you'd love to have no AC, airbags, or anything that overshadows the outdated. Because that's what "gimmicks" do.

    Air bag =/= gimmick. AC certainly is a gimmick; a really, really awesome gimmick.

    Not all gimmicks are created equal, indeed...

    I did NOT ask mentally hindered children that question. If I wanted to, I would ask a brick wall first. Go to a construction site and screw yourself in a plank of wood.

    Where do you find room to store this bullshit? You must have to purchase a lot of Glade and Air Wick...

    Caps lock is indicative of rage. The subject that is raged is ownership. Therefore, you lack a 3ds. It can be concluded you most likely can't afford one.

    I think he has a point. IN MY DAY calculators were banned from school and you had to learn to make nice letters and cursive (that's words connected with a line). Now we have spoiled little brats who can't learn a thing so they dumb down the school curiculum enough so these loser kids can put pickles on my big mac when I tell 'em no pickles....

    Wait what does this have to do with nintendo? lol
