I kinda like the Wii U's gimmick, though with the Wii maybe they went a bit too far, considering that most Wii games don't even take advantage of the motion sensing controls. I can think of Skyward Sword and Metroid Prime, and that's about it. Aside from the shitty sports games.
Mario Kart is exceptional.
I also tend to enjoy Mario Party for multiplayer, but my friends tell me it gets old quickly. I wouldn't know, as I've only played it a few times.
I still like the current gen....
If I was to take your opinion, though, I would hope for Gen after next > Older gens > Current gen > Next gen
I ain't at all wantin' no cloud gaming either, but what're the largest flaws 'bout such a system? Never really thought on it since I'm sure it's a load'a bollocks anyways.
