Here's what I don't understand.
Aren't we supposed to be gamers? Didn't we evolve with gaming, from the simplistic experiences that the Atari 2600 offered to the immersive visually impressive experiences that the PS2 offered?
Didn't we all get excited when we saw the SNES or the Amiga come out and suddenly music sounded 10 times better than their predecessors? Suddenly there 16 million colores instead of 256?
Why did we suddenly stop caring for better graphics and sound? How come the Wii comes out, and now it doesn't matter that its hardware is essentially the same as the previous generation Gamecube?
Why did we stop preferring a First Person Shooter against a simplistic game where all you do is waggle a remote control?
We were supposed to hate the Wii from the beginning, because it took away our beloved gamepad, and it didn't offer us HD graphics.
Some people say "HD graphics don't excite me". Well, "why not!?" aren't we supposed to be technophiles? We are EXPECTED to like HD graphics, because it's part of hour hobby. Leave those "HD graphics don't care" statements to the nongamers and old folks. We are expected to like a game BECAUSE it has HD graphics. And if a console on this day and age doesn't support it, we're supposed to be disappointed about it... as the gamers we are, no?
