I bought it mainly for Zelda:Twilight Princess. Barely used it since I beat it. I had it boxed for over a year after that. I finally decided to take it out and put it in the kids room. They play it on aregular basis. I gotta admit that party games are fun. One thing that I dont understand about Wii, With all the profit it has made with sales, How come they havent slashed the prices? The Xbox360 went down to about $199. The PS3 went down to $350 and is expected to drop down even more in the coming weeks. Why cant Nintendo do the same?
"A lie, Mr. Mulder, is most convincingly hidden between two truths." Deep Throat.
The $199 360 is the bottom of the line one that most people don't bother with, and the main reason that prices dropped was because sales had plateaued. The cheapest PS3 is $400 and that's with many features removed and again, price drops for the system were because of low sales.
Meanwhile the Wii is already (relatively) cheap and still consistently sells out everywhere after having been out for 2 years. There's no need for Nintendo to drop the price.
coz it sounded like a great deal at the time
traded my ps3 and 10 games for a wii with 2 wiimotes n nunchuck attatchments, about 8 games and an xbox 360 with 1 wireless controller and also about 8 games! now that was some sweet deal!
saddly, i didnt enjoy the wii much and the xbox360 is dead.
Pretty much to get my hands on every first party game that they make. Because while Wii has it's hefty amount of one-shot third-party gimmick games, Nintendo at least still knows what the hell they're doing with the Wii's technology. Granted, there are indeed a few third-party games that manage to make good use of the Wii with their games; most people tend to look at No More Heroes as a primary example, and it happens to be one of, if not my favorite Wii game. I have yet to play MadWorld, which seems to use a similar formula as No More Heroes: ultra exagerrated violence mixed with its own unique sense of action, a highly stylized graphical atmosphere, and a satirical punk-style sense of humor that doesn't abuse the Wii's motion contorls and instead saves them for more core elements such as QTE's or special attacks (instead of just shoe-horning it by adressing EVERY attack to the Wii's motion sense, which either gets old quickly or sucks to begin with depending on the game).
As far as scores are concnerned, MadWorld seems to be getting equally good ratings from the critics as No More Heroes, and I tend to prefer highly-stylized graphics over high-end naturalistic graphics, I just think it's a better artistic expression. Truth be told, where Wii lacks power in making graphics like the higest-end PS3/360 games, they compensate for actually bothering to look into the other kind of art-style which is underrepresented in the other consoles this generation imho (there's Prince of Persia, and Street Fighter IV, off the top of my head).
SSBB, zelda, mario, and to see what a shooter would feel like with its controls ..
i do not at all regret my decision to buy a wii...its probably one of the better gaming decisions ive made in my short life..
I've been playing Nintendo games since I was little. Big consoles from the NES to the Wii and I really like the franchises they make too (like Mario, Zelda, Punch-Out!!, Smash Bros.) so I wanted to see what they had for this generation. Of course, I also like to play those old games I had too and with the Virtual Console, I can do just that.
SSBB was also a major reason for why I wanted to buy it too and I'm not disappointed at all.
