Farewell to the Wii: Returning to Nintendo

PixlBit | "I was a Nintendo fanboy as a kid, but then again, what child of the 80’s wasn’t? I obsessed over the secrets of Mario’s games, fought against the forces of evil with Mega Man, and had my first addicting RPG experience with the original Final Fantasy. I devoured each issue of Nintendo Power when it arrived at my house, and had a complete freak out when we got a Super Nintendo for Christmas one year. I fought with my cousin (who probably couldn’t care less) about why the SNES was superior to his Genesis, and had my mind blown by games like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Final Fantasy III, Super Metroid, Super Mario World, and Donkey Kong Country.

All that changed with the next generation of consoles." (Donkey Kong Country, Nintendo, Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, Wii)

I liked the Wii, me and my dad spent about 100 hours playing Wii Sports over the years playing just bowling and golf and then playing a couple of the really bad party games on there which are perfect for drunken antics with friends.

Plus I had a couple of good games for it like A Boy and His Blob, Twilight Princess, couple of Mario games... I never bought too many games for it but I did like the system in its own way.

I believe that Wii U is two consoles in one as it is fully backwards compatible with Wii and all its peripherals including the excellently accurate "Plus" 1:1 motion control.

So, even fans of the Wii and its awesome motion control will still get their fix as strictly motion control only games or as an added method of control for more traditional games like FPS, RPG or action games, which they can still play with the GamePad or the Pro if they want, but this time with the benefit of HD, superior hardware and contemporary online infrastructure, for example, I am buying CoD:BO II on Wii U to enjoy playing it with the Wii-mote and Nun-chuck, although I have all consoles and don't care about the graphics of this game on console-comparative basis.

That's why I believe the Wii will essentially continue to live within the Wii U. I see it as "smoothly passing the disruptive torch" to the next gen.
