Back in '06 the Wii was Nintendo's promise to revolutionize our favorite game genres with a unique new interface that would make gaming more immersive than ever. Well, it's 2009 and for the most part that promise is still unfulfilled. Nintendo now caters to the casual crowd-bored housewives and grandparents who never played videogames before the Wii-and they've largely abandoned the hardcore gamers who've kept them in business since the '80s."
