Nope, lack of huge games did. It's not that people don't want to play "console-like" games, it's more that the games weren't popular enough. Are Mario Kart and SM3DLand not console like experiences, for example? Are they not very very similar to Wii/gamecube games?
No, you're using wrong examples. MK7 works nicely on home/portable consoles.
3DLand is designed specifically for the 3DS, that's a horrible example to pick. LOL.
