A game with completely new mechanics (that work very well) always has more wow effect than one with just subtle evolutions. But as there already have been thousends of games it's just pretty hard to come up with something very fresh that also works better than conventional mechanics.

Back when you were a kid you had a lot of these "I've never played something like this before" moments, nowadays most games are evolutions of these games you played before.
