[QUOTE="r11011b"]In order for a true gaming revolution to occur, you'll need more than just a new controller. I mean, sure the Wiimote has changed the way you play the game, but fundamentally the games have not changed much -- you could just as well use a standard controller to control the actions on screen. What will bring about a true revolution would be a fundamental change to the games themselves. What that could be, I don't know. But as long as the Wiimote is only used for the standard FPS, platformer, racer, fighter, sports, etc. etc., it's not revolutionary. It's just innovative.XenoNinja
When was the last time we had a TRUE gaming Revolution?
Fair question, and if I were to follow my own definition of a supposed "gaming revolution", it'd have to be when video games were first created...taking things like sports and racing etc. and converting them into a different form (from physical reality into video).
I wouldn't necessarily call what the NES did a revolution. I'd call it a revival. Let's face it -- Atari was a nice first attempt at a home console, but the games were of relatively low quality, and very simplistic. Nintendo came in and rescued the market from death, providing higher quality and value, as well as a deeper gameplay experience that, among other things, included storytelling. The games themselves were leaps and bounds beyond anything that existed on the Atari, and so they "revolutionized" the industry, so to speak. But again, I'd still call that innovation because the fundamentals didn't change much.
I guess whether or not the Wii will revolutionize gaming really does depend on your definition of "revolutionize."
I agree, Great post:)i think the last and real revolution was with PSone , and thats in a level of increasing the market and the audience of gaming , maybe wii can do something similar , but not for me i am happy with my 360 and my PC , and all the testing i did with my friend`s wii ( yes that sound awful ) didn`t make a "believer" ...
