Thank you for accepting "the Wii u is the worst console of all time" when actually considering the boundaries i created it and explained it a million times(Sega, Sony, Nintendo and Xbox.) Maybe next time you don't need to throw tantrums by calling me 'kiddo' or keep on bringing your 'goal post' metaphor. (I got it once)You pretty much hide behind the title and were unable to move beyond it even if I clarified it tons of times. Instead, you kept on complaing about the same thing over and over again and then trying to make fun of me based on ignoring what I said. 

@cannonballZ

What are you talking about?Again you are putting words in my mouth that i didn't say. Did I "thrash"  the Wii U, did i go and say "the Wii U sucks" "I hate the Wii U!" If you read the OP I said I wanted to be "realistic and objective" in regards to judging the Wii U. I don't see any evidence you have provide at all  besides your personal opinion "Mario Kart 8 is arguably the best...etc"or "X games are all wonderful." According to who? To yourself. While I did say that the was only  0.1 difference between MKDD and MK8 according to metacritic. I don't know if i should take you and San Andreas X seriously if you only rely on Ad Hominen attacks to try to discredit myself and my thread.

Ummm, I actually haven't accepted those boundaries. You created those boundaries after the fact. Nothing in your title OR your OP clarified anything of the sort. The way it looks to everyone here, you covered your tracks after multiple users called you out.

Words have meaning. "ALL TIME" = the entire history of video gaming. Your basic argument is deeply flawed.

The "kiddo" part was because you apparently think most video game history isn't important because you personally weren't alive to see it. Sorry, but it doesn't work that way. A large proportion of the VGC userbase has a longer memory and longer experience with video games than you do, myself included.  You discredited your own thread, which was either badly thought out or a blatant troll thread.  Better luck next time.

You haven't accepted them? I am quoating you "So sure, the Wii U is the worst console of "all time"..." and "Nintendo needs to change their strategy. There was no denial of that on my part." Your words not mine. You have accepted that the Wii U is 1) The worst console made within the big 4 2) They need to change their strategy.  So you  need to stop repetiting yourself and  move on. Instead, you keep on hiding behind a red herring by bringing you 'goal post' thing over and over and since you can't accomplish anything your rely on personal attacks "blantant troll tread." 

@canonballz

When did I say that "only consoles which I have experience with"? Again you are saying things I never said. Also you haven't read my response when I mentioned that it is irrelevant if I own the console or not.And then I made an analogy about it. You like San Andreas X don't respond to my replies. Instead, you stick with your  same position and repeat it. And then rely on insults or strong language "do I look like the kind of idiot." 


@everyone

I am clarifying my OP.

I am clarifying my OP. 


You point out insults, yet you threw some as well. I responded to the OP and you came it me with : "you musta forgot the is and the ? in the title." and the  "limitied perspective" comment came from you too.  Who responds to just the title?  You haven't replied directly to me either, you keep throwing comments in other peoples replies. You haven't answered my questions, 

Why did exlcude Virtual Boy and why define the boundaries to exclude so many other consoles if you feel you can come to a decicive and informed conclusion by researching them online? Is it because, dare I say, "it makes you uncomfortable"?

I'm not the one repeating myself at all, just check my posts. You keep gong around in a circle and it's really not helping you bring whatever point it is you wanted to make. You keep backpeddling as well. Your title wasn't thrown out there like you were just asking, your OP proved that. You went on to explain why you thought it was eligible to be the worst console of all time. Now you're going to pretend that wasn't what you were implying? 

 



Virtual Boy is still within those boundaries, which by the way, would still not make Wii U the worst console of all time.

Did you think that through before you clarified? Everything Sega, Nintendo, Sony and MS have made fall into that category.

Sega Saturn? I still have mine tucked away in a storage box.That console had way less support and very few games that made that purchase worthy.

Sega 32x or Sega CD? They were add ons but they were not that good at all. I was fairly disappointed when I bought that.

The point is, Wii U is nowhere in that realm and no matter how you word it or try keep repeating it to yourself, it's not going to fall into the worst of all category unless you exclude a bunch of other consoles to fit your agenda.

Saying Virtual Boy wasn't taken seriously isn't a plausible answer either. It wasn't taken seriously because it seriously sucked. It is the ONLY Nintendo console that I still have from back in the day that will not turn on or work properly when it does. By far the worst hardware that Nintendo ever put out.

And it wasn't an add on or peripheral, it was it's own platform. Wii U's library is still expanding, and will have a vastly superior Library to Gamecube. In my opinion, it already does.



Pokemon Mini was a better console than the Wii U? :D



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

No it's not, it's a great console, but Nintendo should give up on the gamepad the way Microsoft did with kinect.


No 

std controler with touch screen > std controler 

The touch screen actually makes the controler better (think features), how could you not see that, even cars are coming with touch screens as std for all the added potential let alone that phones have added that feature for a long time now, and we wont go back to old phones any time soon


MS just announced today to IGN that they absolutely did not give up on kinect and are going full force with it

What does that even mean? Full force on making games for it? So far kinect games have been nothing but a disappointment. I don't use kinect for anything other than chatting in parties and recording videos with voice commands. It works really well sometimes, and other times it's like it doesn't understand you.

I don't want to derail this thread taling about Kinect though. But I would like to see MS do better with it. 



OP has finally figured out how to alter the thread title, yet doesn't replace the "all time" portion with "since the Xbox launched in 2002"

Also not including Atari a group who effectively created or at least popularized the home console market as a serious manufacturer just shows that the OP really knows the Wii-U isn't the "worst console of all time" Think I've gotten about all the fun I can have from this thread tho, now tis just boring.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

That's great you know? But I find it really disturbing to get the same image I'm watching on my TV in the gamepad, with the sound not matching the TV, and that you can't turn it off to save some battery, since it really sucks (the battery life).

I really like the console and games, but I feel they force you to use the gamepad.

It has the best games of this generation. Worst sales? Yes. Worst console? No way unless you have no actual brain or haven't played any of its games. 

The gamepad allowing offscreen play alone means it is utilized. 


I do hope you know that offscreen play is not a wii u exclusive feature.

check out the vita/ps4 combo.

Or got the second screen enhancement, look at fallout 4.


And here I was thinking you had to pay extra for a vita :P
