I'm not referring to the buttons. I'm referring to a pick up and play design. Although simplifying the buttons would facilitate that style just because you don't have as much to memorize, not because of the Wiimote. Such a style would work better with fewer gamepad buttons as well.
Im refering to games on the Wii in general. A casual wii gamer cant play Wii FPS YOU JUST CANT. And RTS and FPS arent easy to pick up gameplay either. So whats Malstrom saying about consoles and games today except FPS have no arcade gameplay quality to it? Its like The Warriors on PS2 even its a sandbox/beat em up game through its core wasnt the arcade type gameplay that he talks about even it have multiplayer. Simply because it have OMIGOSH CUTSCENES! STORY! Its from a movie after all. DIALOGS! OH NOES TUTORIAL! In fact, the whole first stage are full of tutorials.
above, a vid that makes Malstrom shivers. This game according to him should be forgotten or dumped in a landfill in Mexico like ET
