How old are you? 14? You're sounding the part.

You had no complaints when GTA was on a console weaker than the Wii such as the PS2 and then the PSP, yet now that its no longer a risky 100 million dollar endeavor you don't like it?

Oh, and of course it will be Shovelware, right? GTA Nintendogs confirmed. Great job kid, you called it. Make him a Mod now ioi this one's got potential.

I remember the first time I saw the Nintendo console. My thought was … “What the heck is this thing?”

After all, the unit looked like a toy and was marketed like a toy. The controller was very different than anything that had come before. Its game selection appealed toward a younger audience and lacked the current and continued hits, and it seemed to emphasize gimmicks with a variety of add-ons.

Over time though, I grew to understand what the system was all about … and I eventually got one for myself. Of course, I am talking about the Nintendo Entertainment System which sold only over 60 million units worldwide as it redefined, reinvented, and revitalized video gaming (particularly in the United States).

But it was so much different than what had come before. No joystick (the preferred controller of the previous era), no real space shooters or arcade classics in the early line-up (the dominant genre of the previous era), unusual things like a light gun (sounds familiar) and ROB (not as successful commercially but now a collector’s item). And the graphics were not really all that much better from the top-end systems of the previous era (the NES early games were more colorful but not really that much better than Atari 5200 (8-bit computer) or Colecovision (similar to MSX) games.

Still, if you were a 20-something in the mid-1980s and wanted the game from the company whose system you had backed (by Atari or Coleco or even Mattel), seeing this in the stores was a shock.

Now admittedly, today is a little bit different. There are actually other active console makers (which there really was not by that time. Atari was doing computers, Coleco went under, Mattel sold out, and Magnavox had gotten out). Nevertheless, the reaction to the Wii – and its success – is still the same. So contrary to what some may think – Nintendo did not and "ruin" gaming and is not "ruining" gaming. It is merely starting the next evolution in gaming.

This is stupid. Nintendo brings the balance of innovation in a war waged between Sony whom is hungry to find a media format and force it into everyones homes and Microsoft whom wants to monopolize the gaming industry after they try to beat Sony within an inch of their life. Look at Nintendos lifespan work, they've always risked for innovation and either lost or reap the benefits.
