We live in hope my friend.

I'm not big on playing FPS myself, but I do enjoy them. The problem as I see it, is that FPS are not casual games. I'm not interested in investing hundreds of dollars to play Quake 4, for example.

I think the Revolution could go a long way to making FPS accessable in more than one way. Cost, intuitive controls and perhaps even some sort of balancing/handi-cap system for online play. Nothing more embarassing and discouraging than having a child toast you in a game of Half Life.

I have to agree with Mr eel's comment about some sort of handicap for varying players abilities. I used to think that Quake Arena was cool until I played it online. Five minutes after I played it and died many many times I decided that I never wanted to play it again. I think Nintendo would do something to remedy that kind of situation. They did it to Mario Kart DS.
