Wii Need A Good Game: Why Licensed Games Are Keeping The Wii In The Kiddy Pool

On a trip to the nearest video game distributor (CB Games won't name names, but people often stop to get games there) CB Games found that their eye was caught on the selection of games for the Nintendo Wii.

"If the Wii is selling like hotcakes and aiming to get casual and serious gamers interested, then why are there so few serious games to go with the casual ones?"

so he saw few kids AIMED games along with Zelda and RE:4 yet he argues with him self there are no serious games....

" But the GameCube did poorly as a system because of the lack of compelling games and the plethora of games aimed only at children"
I don't know Nintendo aims for everyone therefor its kid-friendly not kiddy.

"but it is not trying to pull in the people who actually care about gaming as a hobby and sometimes as a way of life: the serious gamers."
this guy is on crack.XD

this article really fails. All this guy saw were some games aimed for the younger ones and suddenly its for kids only....blegh
