Just to clarify, I wasn't reaching at all, if by that you mean I was trying to make the wii seem like a better console than the ps3/xbox 360. I was just trying to point out that it can deliver real games too, not just gimmick ones. Both ps3/360 both have the power to deliver the future. What I like about the wii, is it's a little of both worlds. It has the ability to deliver nostalgia, and it has the ability to deliver next gen games (obviously not at the degree the ps3/360 can, but which good developers, the games will still be great, just w/o high def graphics.
Personally I think HD is over hyped. I'm biased though, I know lots of people who really get off on the visual stimulation HD graphics offers. But to me, its all about gameplay elements. I still play the fallout games to this day. And I don't think the jump from ps2/xbox graphics to ps3/360 are that amazing. Sure they are better, but the difference isn't as big as super nintendo to n64, or even ps1 to ps2. HD game graphics is an improvement, but not a revolution. The last NHL game on ps2, will still play the same on the ps3, just a little bit prettier...Yet somehow I don't think it'll give me anymore of a wow feeling than playing nhl 64 on the genesis. Why? Because the gameplay is the same, and for the graphics, well i've seen 'em before.
