But you're also underestimating the computer-power needed to drive a game with Civ 4-5 complexity. Those games bog down SEVERELY in the mid-late game even on the most powerful PCs.
The heart of any RPG would not be the interface - but the feature-set and the content.
Agreed again. Also, things evolve all the time - and no one can predict all the new platforms.
Sure - but my point was that I didn't mention them - and as such they're not relevant when countering.
As you can imagine - I feel the same way about those platforms - largely. Except of course that they're dedicated gaming platforms - and as such, they will tend to have better games - simply because that's what the audience will expect.
