To Hardcore Gamers: Wii Doesn't Suck

TheParanoidGamer Writes: "As a hardcore gamer that primarily plays Xbox, it’s easy for myself and others to be dismissive of Nintendo’s little white box that could. Motion controlling is usually annoying, the graphics are behind the times, and awesome game series like Assassin’s Creed and Mass Effect don’t come to the system due to it being so far outside the others experience that porting wouldn’t work. However, if you’ve never tried the Wii out because you considered it too kiddy or you were just too busy with your other system you might give it a shot. It could just surprise you."

The Wii has plenty of "hardcore" games. Most people just don't do any research to find any.

Be honest - most of you don't click on the Wii tab here at N4G and IGN, and GameTrailers.

Any knowledgeable gamer knows that the Wii has a great library.

I don't. I know the Wii has great games, but the controller and the fact I have an HDTV, just makes me not care... I'm not the only one.

Shok1574d ago

That's fine. As long as you know lol.

You don't have to like a system, just don't be ignorant of it's library, ya know?

I also have the Gamecube playback model, and some Wii games function with Gamcube controller pads (Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Goldeneye:007)."Monster Hunter Tri" is a core as a game a game could get, and people still are ignoring it.

Even if gamers miss out on the Wii generation, the Wii U will have Wii playback - so you'll have a chance to try out Wii games you've missed out on (imagine playing Wii games directly streamed to the Wii U pad controller, while in bed!? Amazing).

Shame not all the games are compatible with the controller.

I think the problem is that Wii positioned its self as a casual console which meant, in a mainstream sense, people just... forgot that it has a library of core titles.

Theres no such thing as Hardcore games just Hardcore gamers

Blaine1574d ago

So Demon's Souls and Angry Birds are the same, in your eyes?

Its sad that an article like this needs to educate the morons.

The wii had a far superior hardcore exclusive library than the gamecube did. Thats for sure

The Nintendo Wii entertainment console has an outstanding amount of hardcore games. The games may not be full of guns, blood, and profanity. But you will have a more difficult and challenging time completing any Zelda, Mario, Metroid, or most other Nintendo in house exclusives then most shooters.

I am personally using shooters because they dominate the playing field on the rival HD consoles.

There are plenty of great full complete hardcore games to be played on the Nintendo Wii console.

Rated E For Everyone
