I actually really like this article/thingy haha... I like how they mentioned Pokemon in it; its still my favorite game/s to this day and my friends and I play all the time lol. And I can really relate... good find!
Yes. Strategic play needs brought back! The problem is that NTs are a small audience and so game developers who wish to maximize their profits (all of them) tend to target young SPs. Which means little complexity and all graphics.
That's not the only issue with videogames though. There is also the issue of just quality. They've taken a serious downturn since the fifth and sixth generation consoles in story depth and overall content within games. But perhaps a few seventh generation games can argue that?
