It's a throwback and that's a good thing. Back in the day, everyone played their Atari 2600 or Colecovision or Intellivision for fun. There were no fanboys. It could be argued that Wii-only owners are the real gamers, playing to play, without a care in the world about what Sony or MS are doing.

The Wii reminds me of what is good about gaming.

Wii doesnt remind me of the old days. Still to this day i can play Super Mario on the nes. I cant say that for any wii game, Only time i turn my wii on is when it is blinking blue. I hit the power button then i turn it right back off. I am not saying your wrong i just see it different is all.

And the reason there was no fanboys is cause there was only 1 system out at a time.

i wouldnt say the wii is absent of its own fanboys. Although there are alot fewer of them.

I find that most criticisms against the Wii are true, although the way that the criticisms are presented are through fanboy-like bashing most of the time.

When did people start hating on the wii? Has the writer heard some of the stuff being said about PS3's and 360s?

edit: let me clarify. All the "wii bashing" isn't really bashing. It's valid complaints with the console's staying power/Nintendo's view on what gamers want. They are very valid concerns for a lot of people. I wouldn't call any of it bashing, because I've never seen anyone rant or flame about the Wii. I've only ever heard people rationally voice concerns.

Compare that with 360 or PS3 where anytime you hear anything good or bad you hear "RRODLOL!" or "ATTK WEAK SPOT FOR MASSIVE DAMAGE!!!"
