Looking thru what has been said, some good points have been raised.
Drake: True, I guess their could be more innovative controllers to interact with games. Ultimately while our computers have evolved rapidly we see that our controllers are the same, so I guess I can see the bottleneck there.
Burseg: Ahhh.. yes good old marketing.. just as long you can sell ice to to the eskymos it must be a good product. Yeah .. we can thank marketing for pushing crap products on the market .. but that is the world we live in..
I guess that is why retro gaming will always have a following as todays fancy graphics offer little entertainment value compared with great original playability.
