Great game and fun to play. hell I still play pacman, digdug and many other 8 and 16 bit games. Some of my most favorite games were on the intelevision console. Hell pong can still be fun when you get to good players going at it.
I don't think anyone is saying that they want graphics > gameplay (that should go without saying). But if you give me the option of playing COD on a Wii vs. an Xbox 360/PS3, I'll take the latter every time.
Likewise, given the ubiquity of HDTV's and their low prices, it really doesn't make sense to still be rocking a Tube TV. Why would you buy a Ferrari and then use the lowest grade fuel in it?
To save money, some do like to do that ya know. just because the more expensive version is out there does not mean you have to have it to enjoy what you got.
