Gameplayer argues that Wii fans could be their own worst enemy when it comes to demanding new games, likening the console to the gay son whose parents are in denial.
This piece was like music to my ears! There’s so much possible with wii and it’s just the tip of the iceberg right now. These people just want more of the same, and try to put the wii down because it’s different. The wii is totally the gay kid of this generation! It’s o.k. wii, I love you just the way you are. Don’t listen to those kids, they’re just insecure about their own controllers. I have been excited about the possibilities with this console since I first heard about it. I just hope it has a chance to try new things; we can all click on a few stories, read the replies, and know that this market has a hard time with anything new. I think N is saying “screw the gamers” this time around, but my fingers are crossed. Who can blame them? They make a gamecube (which was my 1st since snes and genesis, and late in the cycle, but I loved it) which i heard was most powerful, and people complain about kiddie. This time, adult stuff is on wii, but they get ragged about not being technologically powerful enough. N can't win with "hardcores" anyway. They've always had their own cool style, and now they're rolling with it. Three cheers! Am I the only one who could give a ratt’s arse about smash bros? I feel equally apathetic about metroid (though I must admit Mario will be cool). That’s why N got my $$, I want something original.
Yes, I've wanted hardcore games for the Wii, and that's why I haven't bought it. And if it won't get them, then good for me, I'll save a few bucks.
That's right, Wii owners bought Wii KNOWING they were getting a unique experience. They will never get the main Final Fantasies, the GTAs, the Assassin's Creeds of this world, that's the trade off. They'll get the unique titles like EA's Playground and Boogie, Opoona, Wii Health and Wii Music. Rejoice Wii owners, the truth is here and it's clear!
And thats why I DONT want a Wii. I want the main Final Fantasys, GTAs and Assassins Creed. I dont want Wii music or Boogie. rofl
Wow, we're all agreeing for once!
Oh man this guy speaks the absolute truth. This thought has been buried in my skull the whole time and I didn't even know till he said it.
I bought a Wii for the Unique.
Right on. same here.
I'm still playing my Wii & just picked up a copy of Mortal Kombat which brings my Wii library up to 35 titles in 4 months. By comparison my PS2 library consists of 53 titles purchased over 6 years. Personally, I don't want the Wii to become another PlayStation because I'm expecting more from it.
The main thing i dont get is: The Wii isnt out for a long time, so why al this racket? i remember having my PS2, only played it the first week and then it started collecting dust untill the better games came out. Same thing happend to my Xbox and GCN. Nintendo seems te get more developers on their side, and i think we need to give them just a bit more time and some better games will come out. I never knew Rockstar with manhunt would be on the Wii.
I wonder what the Wii 2 time line is: will it be out before the PS4 and X720?
Almost certainly. 4-6 years likely, they'll be competing with re-released versions of the PS3.
sure it aint all that but it did kinda offer a new experience for me and my family(now everybody in my family plays it,its easy to get used to) since i know it aint going to offer hits like Halo3 and Uncharted, i got myself a ps3 and a 360.so i could have the best of both worlds=D because of wiisports now my girlfriend is interested in games. she first thought it was dumb,but now she likes playing them with me..she's even beating my a$$ in tekken 5.
