Formerly known as the Revolution, the Nintendo GO! looks like my next huge console purchase (after the huge price drop of course a few months after retail). This is coming from the guy who has never owned a console since his teens.
This may be just me, but I found this more attractive than the consoles. On the console, you couldn’t do this – you couldn’t click on a dark tunnel and ask for Indiana Jones (another great game by Lucasarts) to describe what he saw. It didn’t feel as “freeing.” Of course, there were times when I’d borrow my friend’s N64 and finish Zelda: The Ocarina of Time because Zelda as well as the early days of Final Fantasy were always the exception to the rule
N.B. Times are different now and with the way gaming has become more competitive, people have upped the level of interactivity (or is it interactiveness?) to make gaming more immersive.. But the Nintendo Go has remained one step ahead by turning the controller into more than just a joystick.
Watch this marketing video. You might get what I mean.
