The Wii U has been on the resurgence thanks to some recent releases, but does the system hold appeal for gamers looking for "grown-up" titles?
Yes. I just go with sales figures of mature titles. I really wish that it wasn't the case tough. But for me, games on Wii U that I'd want to play are Xenoblades Chronicle X, Bayonetta 2 and Devil's Third. And some of that Zelda too.
No, its just for Nintendo fanboys lol. There is a cult following who just love Mario/Mario Kart/Zelda/Super Smash/Metroid who will always buy Nintendo to play those games. I couldn't care less about them. I bought a Wii U when it released and it sat unopened for a month before I took it back to the store when I realized I had made a terrible mistake. Then again maybe I was thinking it was going to be a hard to get holiday item that I could flip for a quick dollar. Whichever the case, it went back to the store.
Mature Titles have nothing to do with it....
Has anyone read what nintendo said about the visitors to the nintendo eShop? It was something like 90% are adults. More adults and actually "mature" gamers own Wii U than XB1 and PS4. Those two cater more to the casuals than the WiiU does.
That logic gave me cancer. What sells on Wiiu doesn't determine who the can enjoy the system.
And what % of those 90% of adults are buying games for their kids?!
"I bought a Wii U when it released and it sat unopened for a month" http://www.reddit.com/r/tha... @UltimateMaster If you're waiting for those games then how the hell is your answer "yes". Obviously it's not just aiming for kids. So NO, it's not just for kids.
Well you neglect the fact that there are plenty of M rated games purchased by young players. Though even if that weren't true your logic still wouldn't be sound.
"Yes. I just go with sales figures of mature titles. " The way YOU think, is EXACTLY like " Money Guy", making all these made casual mobile gaming decisions.
XBL sat unopened? WHy would you get a wii U randomly then? I got a WIi U because of games like mario I didn't have nintendo as a kid I had sega and play station. When I first got my ps4 that had nothing to play for me as well but I didn't leave it unopened nor returned it, I set an account up and connected it online
so was the wii, it too was deemed too kiddy . ha , then MadWorld comes out, and theres nothing more creatively more rated M than MadWorld even KBFD for N64 on sony, micro nor PC machines (: and again just 2 wiiU UnReleased exclusives Devils' 3rd, and Bayonetta 2 more pervertedly HOLY and addicting and more over the top and more bloodborne than all the Gods Of Wars and Gears of wars combined . Nin(:love and light to you all p.s. Viewer Discretion is advised . wiiU http://gifsforum.com/images... . .. . . . http://gifsforum.com/images... . . http://gifsforum.com/images... .. . http://gifsforum.com/images... . plus already HARDCORE TW101, & DKTF . ssoo hhoh!
No, of course it is not just for kids, but I think thats the overall impression casual gamers get. I for one have never owned any Nintendo platform and dont intend to, but only because they dont appeal to me, not because they seem childish. I dont see how people who dont like Mario/Zelda and related stuff, might like Nintendo 1st parties.
theres more than mario and zelda, theres fire emblem, metroid, starfox, you also have 2 third party exclusives that is bayonetta 2 and and devils third, you also have xenoblade chronicles x, and splatoon.
I am pretty sure nintendo did a survey and it said most of the people who buy and play their games are adults. I mean I am 24 and love these fun, colorful games its a great escape from the shooters sometimes. I liked Mario 3d world, Donkey kong tropical freeze ( honestly a challenge), pikmin 3, monster hunter 3, mario kart 8 and I am getting hyrule warriors. I play that and my ps4. You can find them on there with my name.
The Wii U is for everyone, because everyone can have a good time with it. I don't understand why some people can't stand Nintendo games because they're "kiddy".
Is Bayonetta 2 for kids? :P
Kids love Bayonetta! https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW50...
Is this website full of shite?
If it was for kids, it wouldn't have Rated M Games for it.
Kids of all ages XD
Well put. I'm 32, married, just had a son, and I'm still a kid at heart, I guess. Nintendo's games and console remain my favorite. :)
I would like to mention that despite the pretty colorful graphics, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze is not a game I'd recommend for kids. Unless you want to end up with a gamepad broken in half and a wii-mote stuck in the TV screen. From my personal experience, the game is deceivingly hard. On topic, Smash is for all ages, Bayonetta is aimed at a more mature audience, so is Devil's Third. The Zelda series is also appealing to a very wide audience. Many Nintendo games are obviously aimed at a younger audience, but still usually offer enough content and challenge to be enjoyed by older people as well. To class the Wii-U as nothing more than a kid's toy would be a mistake.
That is what I was saying, Dk was a hard game!
The Wii U is for everyone kids adults and old people in diapers
The Wii U is also for people who don't know how to use commas.
lol story quality wtf
Well still have many great "mature" games like cod or something
They addressed this at its e3 reveal. It's for U.
Adults play Captain Toad. Kids play COD.
Short answer: No. Long answer: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
Just because a game isn't rated M it doesn't mean it's made strictly for kids. It just doesn't contain a bunch of unnecessary blood and gore and sex. And last I checked more immature 10 year olds play rated M games than adults. The Wii U is for anyone that wants to game and have fun with a large variety of exclusive games. Case closed.
Wow, who's the insecure child that disagreed with this?? It's true; The rating is just there for how graphic the content is. It's not an indicator of whether or not a mature gamer will or will not enjoy it.
Yes the Nintendo Wii U is for kids
yet you still play PS Home
I used PS Home and I don't think Wii U is just for kids. Why you gonna do me like that? :'(
No. It's not for children. My son is 10 and he thinks he's too old for it. So I would say it is only for small children.
Then your son is a little too big headed. I'm not a kid and I thoroughly enjoy my WiiU. I spend hours on Mario kart, AC4, fifa, 3d world, batman, and a couple of indie games. Nothing "kiddy" about it.
Yeah, nothing kiddie about Mario Kart, Mario, and Batman lol. All kidding aside, the Wii U was clearly marketed for kids. And you should add Rayman Legends to your list of games. Also, I think you meant "pig headed."
you shouldn't have kids
when a 10 year old thinks he's too old for it there's something wrong with him he'll probably have sex and use drugs by the age of 11 and be sitting out a death sentence by the age of 12
Doesn't sound like logic runs in the family. There are places where you and your son can get group therapy to take care of that maturity complex. There is still time...
I don't care if it is I am getting one for Christmas to play Bayonetta 1/2 and Wonderful 101, and play these games online MK8, SSBU, and MH3U with my friends buying one as well this holiday.
Nintendo don't make kids games...they make "family" games. That's an important distinction. Anyone who is secure enough within themselves to not care about seeming "Immature" for playing colourful games would be absolutely fine playing the Wii U. All the teenagers that are desperate to seem mature and gravitate towards brainless, repetitive gore-fests while blathering about how "adult" they are can feel free to miss out on some great games. Everyone else will be quite happy buying Wii U as a second platform and having fun.
And what...PS4 and Xbox One are for 'grown ups'? Give me a break... The Wii U - like the PS4 and Xbox One - can be enjoyed by anybody who enjoys videogames IF they are not near-sighted. The Wii U (thus far) has arguably some of thee best games in the last 4-5 years, its upcoming titles dont look too shabby either.
Is this writer trying to get hits by taking the easy road and bashing Nintendo(with the exact same type of troll article thats been written by other trolls a thousand times over)? Yes, yes he is...
"Are all the gamers adults? Why should we grow to play COD?" -Starts writing an article-
I own all consoles and play with people online and I gotta say arguing about age demographics for the most part has no place in console gaming because I see all types on all consoles.
it's not for turds who forgot how to have fun. Its for kids 1-100 years old. :)
The fact that people don't buy the half baked mature titles on it proves that it has an even more mature audience than the other consoles, mature people waste less money and those half baked ports feel like a waste of money...especially games from WB come on how much DLC you gonna have just make a complete game..
For the most part.
