[QUOTE=Alienblue]And have fun with your 3-D until 6-D comes out![/QUOTE]
We already have 4D in the Matrix -- didn't you read those memos from Sony?
Anyway, could you predict what you think 6D will be? 4D is "time", so how could you even think that 4D will be presented, let alone 6D? And by "time", I mean something more than the mere ability to travel in time as a gameplay element. I mean "time" as a purely visual element. Otherwise we could say that a 2D game like Chrono Trigger or a 3D game like Ocarina of Time are 4D games.
My point is that both 4D and 6D as visual presentations are meaningless to a gamer. 3D is not meaningless, just as 2D isn't.
A LOT of us grew up playing 2D games. What we didn't do is grow up with a learned hatred of anything new. Many of us still love 2D games. That didn't keep us from being able to play 3D games.
BTW, if you don't like playng as Yoshi, play the original SMB64. It's Mario from the very beginning.
Anyway, Alienblue, you are one of the more likeable people here, so I don't want to argue with you, especially over something regarding preference. But I think you should give 3D more than a passive chance, and quit talking about it like it violated everything decent and good about gaming. By all means, feel free to move into 12 years ago, even if that move has to be slow and gradual.
