Improvement's in gameplay will only happen if the Miyamoto (Maybe not spelt right but hopefully you know who I mean) genius strikes gold again. All innovations in gaming today IMO have come from that softly spoken gaming god. Apparently even he is running out of ideas.
PREACH ON, MY BROTHER!
though I would not consider Miyamoto to be the end-all games guru, I completely agree with what you said. However Im not bored with consoles, except those which are 'next gen', and the Dreamcast. I quite like the DC.
My Gameboy Advance is the king of today, though
