Obviously we disagree with this notion. Sure, it might not be the commercial power house it was back in the golden days, but it's far from dead. It's not even particularly niche either, since it's one of the best selling genres of the Nintendo DS.
You don't have to take our word for it. Recently the supreme chaps over at Ars Technica and IGN decided to revisit the "ailing" genre and found that it's doing quite well, thank you for asking. Fact of the matter is that it's feeling better than it has in a long time. Both articles make for nice reading together over a cup of coffee and some pastry, and can be found here and here.
Feel free to send us links to similar articles, if you know of any. We can't get enough of reading about this!
