There's no small amount of love and nostalgia for Nintendo and everything it does -- especially when most of what Nintendo does is upgrade its consoles and re-release the same kinds of games. The Wii represented hope for the future of gaming, but as it turns out that vision has gotten lost in the mix as game consoles have adopted far more advanced features, graphics, and motion capturing-controllers (like the Kinect).
