The Nintendo Revolution,and why Wii were wrong

From Shacknews:

but it's high time they make more games to an adult's liking. i bought one because i expected more games and it just hasn't happened - and i wanted to love this console so much. Wii Sports, Metroid, and Super Mario grabbed my attention collectively for about a month. its a great system "for parties" - how man times have you heard that?

...clearly, my opinion is in the minority as sales records suggest. this is kinda like when the mini-van revolution took hold in the late 80's.
