You guys in Edmonton did it. You got me hooked again. I bought a Nintendo Gamecube.
Does it have cutting edge graphics? Not really. Is it the bleeding edge technology? Nope. The stunningly realistic games? Not a chance. My computer can beat is six ways from Sunday on all of those counts. Why, then?
Simple: gameplay. Nintendo is still the king of making FUN games. It's about having something more fun to do than watch a movie with a few friends over. It's about being social.
If you don't think Nintendo is fun, then I challenge you to play Super Mario Strikers in 4 player mode. You'll be surprised.
