If you grew up with ___ as your first console:
NES - You deserve respect
SNES - Deserve respect, but not as much as someone who grew up with an NES first
N64 - bleh
Gamecube - You know nothing
Wii - I laugh and spit in the general direction of your face
The fact that someone was born in the eighties and had played games made by other people (and most likely purchased by their parents) warrants respect? Wow, that's a new one.
NES games are just as flawed as the shovel ware we get today. Technically limited games that are/were amde to cash in on the revitalization of a popular market. The way I see it, the NES and Wii are the same system. When the NES came out, it was amazing because you it could handle multiple screens in the same level. The introduced motion controls. It was new and exciting.
Also, when you're a kid, you can't really expect me to believe you could understand the difference between a AAA title and a shovel ware title, when anything that moved on a T.V screen was awesome.
On the case of the Wii U price, it wouldn't be equal to what the 3DS was at launch. 300 to 350$ seems good to me.
