    I'm totally happy with the way gaming is today. I'm fed up with all this touch screen and motion control and 3D-malarky. I'm happy with just controller and a TV screen, as long as it's a good story, decent graphics and has competent controls. Admittedly, I do have a 3DS, and that INCLUDES both a touch screen and 3D gaming, but... Dream Drop Distance wasn't going to be released on a home-console any time soon.

    "Personally, we're glad that Nintendo is going in a different direction with the Wii U." Because gyroscopes and touch screens are so much better for gaming than waggle, right?

    The Nintendo DS would like to have a word with you.

    Isn't gyroscope an overall improvement on Motion anyway?

    Virtual reality sounds like the most awful thing ever for someone like me with a motion sickness problem. I've felt sick after playing some racing games on a laptop, and I don't think trying to plug the game INTO MY FACE will provide a great experience for me.

    Most of these were expected to be terrible. Why did anyone ever think that 3D gaming was going to be a hit? Online multiplayer is still pretty crazy to think about though. Boggled my mind 6 years ago.

    A rather interesting article, were never getting what we internally expect, NEVER. We get something else that we learn to like or hate depending on how it does

    i would say there isn't any virtual reality to speak i mean we didn't really get that virtual reality we dream of so What we got is: nothing.......yet sure it's not the same as like 20 years ago but still

    Even if the Whiil isn't great (I used it exclusively on MKWii though), all it does it make an average system (dual analog) look better than it is.

    I'd like to think the situation's better than it looks. A lot of the things here are newly emerging and variably untested. As was stated in the intro, gaming has come a long way over the years, but a lot of these newer "innovations" still haven't had time to mature. Just look at how long Nintendo held off on producing another 3D handheld after the Virtual Boy flopped. The best way to make progress is to make mistakes. I'm sure Nintendo, Sony AND Microsoft can all secretly agree they made mistakes in the whole motion-gaming space (and, say, digital; pricing structures are godawful) and will be working to improve those experiences. However you also have to account for the fact that most of these things probably also seem "trivial", or a novelty, to developers so nobody ever puts as much effort into them as they should. Why bother making the 3D jump out the screen when the vast majority probably won't even realise? However I'll be concerned if next gen machines come out and not a lot has changed.

    I'm pretty happy with the games I'm playing actually. Give me a good story, a responsive controller and HD graphics (games that came out around the time the 360 and PS3 were released are still fine in my book) and not to much loading screens and I have not that much to complain about. But there will always be something, we dutch are a glass half empty kind of folk.
