Alex had me look at some Nintendo Wii porn, and I have to admit that I'm intrigued. The thing is appealing because it is not only compatible to the Gamecube and its controllers, but you can buy games online going back to the entire line of Nintendo consoles, and the Sega Genesis. That's pretty cool.
The problem with video games is that I love to play them, but never make the time. I have a stack of games I've not finished. When I do play, I play the downloaded Xbox Live Arcade titles because there's a lot of brief short-attention-span things I can do. Firing up Tomb Raider, Splinter Cell or Sponge Bob requires more time.
Although, that's one of the appeals of getting access to the entire Nintendo back catalog (even though you can get a lot of it via emulators). The older stuff still has an appeal that modern games can't deliver on. It makes sense though, because the old school stuff shared some mind set with arcade video games, which by the practical matter of having to make money 25 cents at a time, had to be brief. Even the old Mario games allowed you to play in short bursts and still accomplish something.
And come to think of it, that's probably why the first Xbox 360 games I finished were Project Gotham Racing and Perfect Dark Zero (it had nice short missions). This would also explain why even though I'm interested, I can't get into RPG's.
