I am currently having an argument with my cousin who is convinced that the main reason hand held gaming was invented was to make games 'easier' for children. He refuses to believe the main reason was portability.

He goes on to state that he would never buy a hand held or hand held game because they pose no challenge for him.

He also believes that the best games ever, are those that "open up a new world for him". He goes on to list examples such as the first Mario and Zelda games. He basically said that unless the game brings something new to the table, it will never be considered the best. How many games can revolutionize the industry though? I asked for his Top 5 games of all time, he could only say 3. He refuses to admit that games can take the basic formula from games such as Loz: OOT and built on it.

What are your thoughts on his stance?

Another thing that he is saying is that there can never be any best game ever, because it's all opinion.

He then said games like Skyrim and Last of Us can never be one of the best game ever due to it having glitches/bugs in the modern age of gaming.

How about Mario Land 2 offering an open map with a choice of level order. Like 100% choice, you can start on any world and do them in any order.

Do you guys agree with his statement that " The main reason for hand held gaming was not portability, but to make games easier"?

Your friend kind of sounds like an elitist douche...sorry don't know him but definitely sounds like if from what you said he said.

This.

Give him Fire Emblem:A hardest difficulty with perma death on and don't tell him children inherit skills from parents. Or Mario and Luigi Partners in Time, you put that game down for a few days you will never be able to get back in correctly.
