Loot Ninja challenges Miyamoto: "I am sorry but spazzing out to a rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is not more interesting than taking an enemies head off in Fallout 3 or tactically dismembering an enemy in Dead Space, not even close."
I think Miyamoto is way off base saying that Wii Music is more interestign than video games. To who? This game does not gear itself toward any type of gamer except the casual gamer and children.
It's just his opinion >_>...and if you think about it he just crushed every game he made into the ground just by saying that. Really i do wonder if its not a "lost in translation" thing...
I also hope it's a "Lost in the translation" thing because if it's indeed Miyamoto's word then the legend has indeed lost it. If Miyamoto really said that then the man who brought gaming back to life and gave it many gifts in form of Super Mario Bros, Zelda and Mario 64 has gone insane. I hope that it's definitly a "Lost in translation" thing.
yeah I hope it was a translation error, it sounds callous to me and like you mentioned kind of throws dirt in the eyes of classic games that he himself helped create.
Wii Music better than any video game… ? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOT.
this, to me, is strictly an example of the vast differences between our culture and his (Japan). Japan is known for loving some absolutely crazy stuff that seems so trivial to us. this is just another example of something that will be very popular there because of their tastes. it could still be popular here, but i doubt it's as popular.
Nintendo had a horrid conference and now they are tap dancing to try and salvage themselves. Surprised that Miyamoto even made the comment at all.
and are now jsut talking non-sense. I think they're just blown away by what's happening with the wii and really think that this is what core gamers really want and enjoy. Nintendo have taken too many funny mushrooms and are indeed high.
They are super successful right now, but the people that really play games are growing tired of them. The hardcore gamer is feeling neglected by Nintendo and for those people that rushed out and got a Wii expecting support they have been lef tout in the cold for cutesy casual games. Wii Music is a gimmic any way you slice it.
in my opinion for me this has been the worst gen of nintendo. i used to be a mindless nintendo fanboy waiting for the Wii like the second coming of Jesus but not anymore. what argument i have to back up my opinion? just look their freaking E3 conference and all the games that they have released in all this time. they are not making any better than the N64.

So, my 3 year old can press random buttons and do just as good as I can? I cannot see how this could be fun for even the most braindead soccermom. No matter what button you press, the game plays the right notes. How is that fun? And why would you put a Wiimote up to your mouth unless you are a Clubbiefan who resides in Boystown? If the pitches changed with the angle that you held the Wiimote I could "kinda" understand the appeal to grandma. But if ALL you do is press whatever button you want and the game plays the right note...HOW IS THAT FUN? I would have more fun throwing rocks, playing Air guitar, watching weeds grow, picking my nose, (you never know what your going to get right Forrest?) taking out the trash, wiping my 3 year olds bottom or patting my head and rubbing my tummy at the same time....all of those activities take MORE skill than Wiimusic. Nintendo deserves No respect and nothing but ridicule right Mr. Dangerfield?
I think Nintendo have just lost their spirit. This is comming from a long time Nintendo Fan, i also want to add, i own all 3 "next-gen systems" so fanboyism or anything wont come into this. I'll admit, there have been a few great Title's in the last few years from Ninty, but 90% is pure crap. Okay, i enjoy my Wii, i enjoy playing games i want to play on it. Mainly Brawl (i'm in EU) and House of the Dead 2 and 3 (i just love them games) but thats it recently, and it annoys me, because they do have the calibre to make amazing 1st party games, also there have been amazing 3rd party games in the past. But the problem is, Business. Lots and lots of Company's release crappy games on the Wii, simply because they will sell. The market has been flooded by all this crap, and shifted the balance in a big bad way, Nintendo have become there own worst enemy. Pretty much every Nintendo Fan (before the Wii.) will be on some level a core gamer, and we all know what Nintendo has done, and when the Fad (yes Reggie, i said it!) of the Wii dies down, and its only seen in a core's bedroom; althought it will be gathering dust, Nintendo will suddenly realised what they have done. Nintendo will in the next 10 years will epically fail, when they realise, they've pissed off their Core audience for too long, and they moved nicely onto a system that caters to their needs and wants, And atm for me, its the PS3, although, there are still games i want to get, to play on the 360, and for the next year my list of "to-buy" games is about 20-25 for the ps3/360, about 10 for the PC, and 1 for the Wii, maybe 2 if Kid Icarus looks any good. And i'm assuming most Core Gamers will feel the same about the Wii and Nintendo. Sorry for the rant, just had something i wanted to say.
I think Nintendo is a victim of their own marketing. I look at Wii Music and I see something someone might pick up once and have fun for 5 mins goofing off and then your done. Watch those cheesy Nintendo commercials where everyone is smiling, cheering each other on, patting each other on the back, living in Fantasy Land. Nintendo is starting to drink their own kool aid thinking a family of four is going to jam out twice a week to Wii Music and have a grand old time. There's not that many happy pills in Wonderland. This game will sell for the novelty, but I bet if there was a "collects the most dust" award in software it will go to Wii Music. Now give me some fricken titles where I can move my arms around in ways I can't on other consoles and I'm willing to take a hit on the graphics if the gameplay is fun. Zelda is one game and when that comes and goes, what are the Nintendo hardcore going to be clamoring for next?
lol @ wiimusic.. like you'd wanna play that over rb or gh
yeah how can Miyamoto say it is more interesting than somehting that takes skill to play. It is like comparing painting with smearing poo on a wall.
We lost Miyamoto
I htink he means in a creative state.There is no way he meant in general...or did he?
In either sense of the word I think Wii Music is about as intersting as a p00flavored lollipop.
Amen...Nintendo said Funk off to its core. I feel sorry for those guys who bought a Wii waiting for actual third party renditions to land. Now they are just thinking of any stupid activity, adding Wii to the front, and expecting millions.
Wii Sport Wii Play Wii Fit Wii Music Wii Sport Resort Whats next? Wii toilet training? I wouldn't be surprised now.
Seriously the more i see this lame joke the more i ask my self if any of you are original yourself? XD
not really sure what your getting at, but i think most of us are getting at how disapointed we are in Nintendo.
like if most of the disapointed supported Nintendo in the first place? Its just stupid to think there are no traditional games comming from nintendo, E3 says nothing. You guys just pretend E3 is the end of nintendo.
