Today we reveived the first images of The Sims for Nintendo's Wii. This version will be a bit different from the ones we are used to, since the whole graphical style is cartoony, instead of the more realistic Sims we know from PC.
It looks like harvest moon ffs. What happened to that graphical style I used to love?
this looks effin cute!
Obviously Nintende saw The Sims game and how well it has done and decided that's the kind of game they wanted on their Nintendo. Although Nintendo decided they needed to up the CRAP-ness factor. I can imagine the Nintendo Bosses saying "It needs to be much more baby-ish and crappy looking to be on a Nintendo" then occasionally adding "it needs to be more crap then that! more crap, more crappy!" "Hey why not add a dopey Mario looking chef too! OOh YEAH! now THATS Nintendo!!"
Are you serious, EaziG? What's wrong with it looking different? If the game looks like it'll be fun to play, then what's wrong? Just because I does not look rough and gritty, the game is immediately crap? So what that it looks childish. I’d rather play a childish game for years on end than get stuck playing a crappy violent game for a month or two until a ‘better’, more violent game comes out. Games are supposed to be played, not looked at. If you want to look at something, go rent a movie.
Nintendo is never going to be taken seriously by teens and 20-30 something gamers if they keep making cutesy games that are embarrassing to be caught playing.
Girlfriends/wives are going to be all over this. Mark my words, this will be another system seller for Nintendo.
i like the chibi anime style. it fits nintendo/japan better. it's what's popular there, and here to a decent degree.
this is going to sell, smart move from EA.( i mean animal crossing on the DS did well too)
Still marketing to 6 year olds, I see. *sigh*
MicroGamer - Agreed, I bought a Gamecube before and waited for some decent (non baby, kiddy) games to come about. but i ended up waiting and waiting. ...nothing. about the only decent one i found was Resi Evil, but why have that title 'solely' on a babys console when it first came out? Nintendo is a kids console, and don't get me wrong, i really Love the Japanese and think they're very cool, but Nintendo is just soooo Japanese. hardcore European and American Gamers are just not going to buy stuff like this. i feel another laughing fit coming on.
