Lack of glitz underscores low anticpation for Nintendo games

Remind me again why Nintendo gets overlooked by the gaming press (assuming you think they do) despite their surge in popularity? Is it a lack of glitz (HD visuals), the kid-friendly visual art, motion-sensing alienation, a lack of mature games, actual legitimacy, or something else altogether? No Mario Kart sequel mention in the above 10 most anticipated games of 2008 list is a shame. Additionally, not one handheld game made GT’s list. Not that there is one worthy — just sayin. Penny for your thoughts?
