There is nothing special about the wii. I have bought 4 retail games, and haven't bought a game since early 2007. The last game being Wii play (because of the controller) Now the wii only gets used when guests come over and they want to play wii sports.
Nintendo screwed the core gamer this gen.
Damn I really need some of that you are smoking.
Well, they did. Unless you like Mario, they screwed you. And personally, I've gotten tired of playing mario these past 12 years.
That mentality is why great titles like MP3 and FE:RD never get much attention.
