"Until recently, I would have told you that I loved the Wii as well. I recently realized something. I have not played my Wii since January. None. Not one minute. I have bought a couple of other games, some that I really like. I just have not had a desire to play Wii. There have not been any games I have wanted to buy since the launch. I have not finished any of the games I bought at launch. The Wii is a great system - for those who do not like games. It is easy to pick up, learn the controls, and master it. This translates into being overly simple, having limited control, lacking depth.
The controller has its limits not because I suck at using it but because the controller kinda sucks. The fact that I often get beat by my four year old nephew at WiiSports Tennis when all is does is wave his arm up and down shows the limited control you actually have over the controller. The fact that over the holidays, the entire family would play together and no one consistently won shows that the games involved more luck than skill.
I really do want to love the Wii, but I realized I don't. It is fun as a party game, during the holidays, or any other time non-gamers would be inclined to play a game, but it is not as fun as a person who actually enjoys playing video games."
