Nothing makes me regret having traded in my PS2 more than this.  Not Dark Cloud 2.  Not Final Fantasy XXX Yuni's Dance Studio.  Not Grand Theft Auto: Blow Up This City.  This, is the game that makes me long to have my PS2 back, and with that I welcome any armchair pop-psychology analysis you can muster.

Nintendo Wins, I Eat Humble Pie
