    GervGirl got a reaction from Justin in Nintendo Switch   
    Well it did not wow me ether but I am excited because I do love Nintendo almost as much as Atari. They have always looked to be different and in a lege of their own. Honestly I think it is going to take a lot for them to top the Wii wow factor. That was great technology when it came out and have yet to really see them top that. I have a teenage daughter so we will for sure get one of these at some point. Another reason I love Nintendo is I am a sucker for the Zelda games and Donky Kong Country games which you can only get on Nintendo of course. They have me sold on their exclusive games and there for no matter what I will be a sucker for buying the newest gaming system just for those games alone. ....... My 13 year old on the other hand think the new switch is awesome. I can wait a couple years for the price drop.

    First of all, my theory why some of us (myself included) feel that new systems no longer induce the "wow" factor feeling. 
    Graphical leaps are getting smaller and smaller.
    Going from 2600 to NES...Wow!
     
     
    From NES to Genesis...WOW!

     
    Grainy FMV on Sega CD...Wow!
    Genesis to PS1...Wow!

     
    PS1 to PS2...Wow!

     
    PS2 to PS3...meh.

     
    Here's another one. Mario kept looking better and better, but once the gamecube version hit, he didn't really improve all that much.

     
    We're visual people, but the room for improvement is getting smaller and smaller. It's actually smart that Nintendo is focusing on innovation. (Wii, DS, 3DS, Wii-U)
    Yes, they have had some duds (Virtual Boy and Wii-U as far as sales go).
     
    Switch doesn't floor me, but it does intrigue me. I like the option to play on either a TV or laying on the couch while someone else is watching TV.  The 3DS is my current favorite system and Nintendo is my favorite game maker. Even if it was just another plain system, I'd probably be interested just for the next games in series such as Zelda and Mario Kart.
     
    Two last thoughts:
    1) Portable no longer means having to fit in your pockets, thanks to massive smart phones and iPads.
    2) I hate to say it, but we (who grew up in the 80's and 90's) are no longer the target audience.  Now it's all about Millennials, who, on the whole, have different tastes than us. I believe that is who the trailer was targeting. However, future ads may target more kids and families.

    This is great news! The Cyberpunks (who put together Stella Gets a New Brain, the Starpath CD comp) rounded up a bunch of Atari 2600 people in the late 90s for interviews. There were 2 Stella at 20 VHS tapes released of these interviews after that, but that was it. Nathan Strum has uploaded all of the RAW interview tapes to the Internet Archive, where you can watch them for free or download them all. Go get them!

    Hello gamers!! I am Diane. ???? I joined here a while ago but forgot and now here I am again lol ...... I grew up in the 80s and 90s, I had the Atari 2600 and C64 growing up. I think I was one of the last one of everyone I knew to get a Nintendo which at that point it was SNES. While all my friends had NES I had my C64 and now looking back I am glad I did. Anyway me and my husband are gaming collectors though I am more into the older stuff then he is. We have 5 different Atari 2600, C64, NES SNES, N64, Game Cube, Sega, PlayStation, PS2, Wii, WiiU, Different handhelds, etc. Right now I am most into collecting Atari and always looking to add. I have two daughters 13 and 3 so that has keeps us busy. ...... ok sorry for the long intro, I hope to be able to join in on chats when I can. ????
