In other words, what would you consider the most recent Nintendo innovation that was really a game changer?

Personally, I'd say that in terms of tech it was motion controls introduced by the Wii.

In terms of a game, it was the original introduction of Smash Bros in 1999.

The DS
Dual screens are the best

The idea to bundle extra games with Bayonetta and Mario Kart 8. That will really help push software sales. Get those guys on the hardware marketing team
If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.

I'd argue that the Gamepad was a brilliant idea if it hadn't fallen flat on it's ass. The last idea that strikes me is the Wii motion control and Wii Sports. It was an instant hook for anyone I think. I think the 3D part of the 3DS is one of the stupidest things they have ever done I must say.

I'm going to second the DS. To me the Gamepad is nothing but a different take on the DS, so I'm discounting it here.
I got in trouble on Gamefaqs for the word "cracker". It was bad enough to put me on probation

I'd say the analog stick. Sure they didn't really invent it, but they were the first to implement it in a mainstream system. And it's an innovation that has become the norm. You don't see controllers without analog sticks anymore do you? Motion controls were a fad and, thankfully, are fast fading. Dual screen is okay, but not nearly the innovation that the analog stick was/continues to be.
