Interesting read about the fundemental principles of game design as applied to Nintendogs
sounds very interesting. i dismissed nintendogs previously becuase it came accros as a small game that you'd play for a few weeks then lose interest in. but judging by the popularity of it thus far it might be work checking out. the article also makes it sound much larger and longer lasting than i previously thought. not that i'm against small games or anything, it's just that at $70 a game i like something that's going to keep me interested for a decent length of time.
