So, the other day, I found myself in a Best Buy trying to figure out on what to spend the gift card my sister had given me. I was intending to pick up a couple of comedy albums, but, quite frankly, they’ve gutted that section.
So I thought, Eh, maybe a video game.
It’s not as if I had enough to play already; all those games sitting in my Steam library.
I went over to the game section and looked around. I quietly lamented at all the generic shooters and saw Zone of the Enders: HD Collection for the 360. This came highly recommended to me, so I picked up the case.
While still lamenting over the state of gaming, I glanced over toward the displays they had set up. There was a Wii and a Wii U display, and a couple of kids milling around.
One of them, a little girl, went up to the Wii display and said, with all sincere glee, “Mario!”
The machine was loaded up with New Super Mario Bros. Wii, you see.
I stopped walking and watched her play for a moment. She looked over toward me, grinning brightly, and then turned back to the game.
I realized then that we probably don’t have too much to worry about regarding the future of gaming.
