But, still, it felt like there was something missing. And while, personally, I feel like Super Mario Galaxy was able to do some things that were very unique, at the same time, from another perspective, certain elements of it do feel somewhat conservative. This is something I've been talking to both of those teams about ... hopefully [the next Mario and Zelda] will feel newer and fresher than their most recent versions.' MTV Multiplayer also commented on Portal's mechanics and gameplay, to which Miyamoto responded, 'I think Portal was an amazing game, too.' GameSetWatch has a related article criticizing Nintendo for relying on the Wii's input devices to develop game franchises rather than improving actual gameplay."pa href="http://games.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/10/30/2312211amp;from=rss"img src="http://games.slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?from=rssamp;op=imageamp;style=h0amp;sid=08/10/30/2312211"/a/ppa href="http://games.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/10/30/2312211amp;from=rss"Read more of this story/a at Slashdot./ppa href="http://feedads.googleadservices.com/~a/DKkA6TygpHqa-iJa4ZLV7hbnPcw/a"img src="http://feedads.googleadservices.com/~a/DKkA6TygpHqa-iJa4ZLV7hbnPcw/i" border="0" ismap="true"/img/a/pimg src="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Slashdot/slashdotGames/~4/MhhXfeA2ycg" height="1" width="1"/
