Realism is overrated.

The sales could also be related to the fact that Nintendo relies a lot on the DS dominating the market. I can easily vouch that my DS collection is more vast than my Wii collection, and I enjoy it more. Maybe with four DS's out there, people are finally saying "**** it"
That could be it as well. I personally still have my original phat DS, and it has served me very well to this day.

My only main issue with the DS Phat was that the screen was a bit dim. The DSi is pretty good, but I still think the DS Lite is the best one overall so far.

I'm with ILS on this one. Also, I could never get the snaking right in Mario Kart with a DS Lite.

Good. Snaking destroyed MKDS's online mode, and I'm glad it was eliminated in MKWii.



QFT indeed. Look at Okami. Hugely unrealistic, but one of the best-looking games I've ever seen.

I think too much importance is placed upon realism, yet I think it is confused with believability, something I feel is more important than any other stylistic aspect of a game.

Nintendo tries to hard to be casual. I'm glad to see that there's a chance they may learn from their mistakes. Casuals care about quality games too, just look at Halo. No one can shut up about it, and it doesn't seem casual at all. >_>

A game is meant to entertain, nothing more or less. You generally wouldn't want a FPS set in WW2 where everyone looks like they were made for a PowerPuff Girls episode [Who am I kidding, that would be great to have Him in a WW2 setting] since that could ruin the 'in actual moment' mood the gamer is looking for. Then again, what is seen as entertaining differs from person to person.

I would love to play a game that is entirely about kittens, and as a kitten you attack your human 'owners' and plot your iron-fist rule over the house. You would watch out the window for birds and go on 'missions' where you would be either looking for items in the house or completing certain tasks, even those a kitten could never accomplish in real life, like the assasination of your owners. Eventually you would move out of the house and fend for yourself in perhaps a city/urban/farm enviroment [picture a grand-theft auto style enviroment, very sandboxy, but with exquisite detail]. You would communicate with other animals and perhaps kill them in your effort to survive... For a game like THAT, well then hell yes, it would be funny to see a realistic looking cat pounce on to its owners back and sever said owners jugular in a fit of rage... I love cats. I need this.

Maybe I'm hoping for too much, but this game would be addicting and fun.

Not one word about my kitten wish...

Glad someone openly shares my viewpoint though ^_^
