    Not ruined, but I think simple knob twiddling and button mashing can't compete with the newer more interactive control methods that are increasingly been developed.

    I honestly think that in a few years we'll look back on standard controllers and wonder how anyone could ever have used one to play a game!

    I'm not saying either that the Wiimote is the be-all-and-end-all but it's definitely a step in the right direction - I mean, would you rather push an analog stick left and press a button to return a volley in a tennis match, or physically swing your controller and the speed and angle determine the type of shot?

    To get back on topic, I suspect that some 3rd parties will keep on releasing shovelware and poor versions of hastily converted titles which will continue giving the Wii a poor name amongst some gaming fans, but hopefully Nintendo and forward-thinking 3rd parties will still be releasing gems amongst them.

    I still haven't got Scarface which is supposed to be an excellent game, there's plenty of 3rd party great games (but some crap too) - you just have to avoid the bad stuff and vote with your wallet, and hopefully they'll get the message

    Ugh no!! I don't want joypads to be the thing of the past like black & white TVs. If that happens games will eventually become virtual realities which you controls everything in mid-air with your hands. I really do not want that, that would really suck horribly. I think if that ever happened gaming would be a thing of the past for me.

    Well true, if you can't just pick up and play a game easily then it sucks, but somewhere between the two would be nice!
