There are a lot of myths about the Wii, that it just fizzled out and had a short lifespan when it was the first home console from Nintendo to go over 5 years since the SNES and that people only played Wii Sports and it otherwise gathered dust when it had a higher attach ratio than any Nintendo system - home console and handheld - save for the Gamecube which had a slightly higher attach rate.

Yeah, there were a lot of myths invented to try and discredit the Wii's success.

The "people bought only bought it for Wii Sports/Fit, played for a weekend, then never touched it again" is one of the most absurd. According to Nintendo's own internal data, the Wii has a software to hardware ratio of 9:1, so on average a Wii owner had 9 games for it. It's attach ratio is actually higher than the N64, which was 7:1.

So the average Wii owner bought more games than the average N64 owner.

I hadn’t heard about the attach ratio being THAT high, but yeah...it’s not like Wii software didn’t sell. Mario Kart Wii, New Super Mario Bros, and Wii Sports Resort remain some of the best selling games, period.

And on top of that, the Wii remained the top selling console for most of its life. It did peak early, but something that was a top selling console for four years and sold over 100 million in six was hardly a “fad”.

So you too try to "make fun of me" huh??. The last one who said something similar to me (that he and others like him thought that way in this forum) ended burned by their own words in just a matter of days. He of course did not appeared later apologizing of accepting he was wrong because here, NO ONE IS WRONG EVER. This bully mentality from a section of posters here is absolute CANCER. It was so pathetic i didn't even tried to show everyone how wrong he was because it would've been overkill, so please don't force me. You are just another pawn in this site who doesn't want to accept other points of view. There's a thread asking why this forum is becoming deserted, and it's because people like you. You really think is you making fun of me??? You are making fun of yourself sir....People never learn good lord.

Go win the battle of fanboys that like to warring in an internet forums if you want. It seems is the only thing people come here nowadays....

And by the way, the last comment proves that you're not paying any attention at all at what i'm saying in this thread but you stil try to offend me anyway. I ALREADY SAID ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE THE SAME FAD TO ME JUST IN A PREVIOUS POST. 

I take it you are referring to me? My apologies, first of all if it seemed as if i was trying to make fun of you at the time. I really wasn't. Also, my apologies for the stuff i said and accused you of in said thread. In the context of the thread it looked accurate to me. In hindsight, probably not my best judgement. Also, kudos for your prediction. It was pretty much spot on and iirc you were literally the only one here who was predicting those results. I admit i was wrong. I guess i took too much stock in some of the higher predictions both here and over on resetera. (In my defence there are those on there who are insiders/have insider information) so someone like you (No offence meant) who literally just follow stuff with logic and make their own judgement should have no right making better predictions than them. So again, kudos to you. I will certainly pay much more heed to your predictions/marketwatching in the future. As for why i didn't apologise to you on the actual thread it was because it fell out of my activity feed pretty quick and i couldn't remember where it was. Also because much like this thread, i don't want to drag it off topic too far,

So, once again, both apologies and kudos to you. I would take my hat off to you if i had one! See, we're not all too bad on here and contrary to popular belief, i'm not actually solely on this site to make enemies! 

Thank you very much, i much apreciate your comments and don't worry, you're forgotten for my part. Not just you needed to apologize to something, I made mistakes too, and in fact i regretted that comment i posted to HoangNhatAnh inmediately after, so i will apologize publically here to him too, so sorry HoangNhatAnh. I guess all of us have rough days sometimes....

There is no need in this forum to treat us like this with petty comments or insults. I only wish people woule believe me at last when i say that i have no bias or agenda against Nintendo. It's always my most sincere opinion when i post or predict. 

But yes, i will talk with anybody here every time, i have no problems, and i expect to discuss things again in the future with you.

Np. Hopefully none of us will have hard feelings after this. I look forward to future, civil discussions with you! As for this thread i should take my leave, as i'm dragging it off topic.

HOWEVER... On topic, personally i preferred my time with the N64, retroactively but i can also see why people also prefer the Wii. I loved both consoles and have fond memories of both. However, my single and multiplayer memories of Wii sports, Warioware, Smash, Mario kart Wii etc. don't quite compare to my memories of single and multiplayer Goldeneye, Mario kart 64, Rush 2, Mario tennis, Mario golf, Mario party, Smash etc.



DON'T WIN ME CHIBI BUDDY DON'T WIN ME.

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

With all this discussion of fads and such I never actually got to weigh in on the thread topic.

I love, love the N64. Games like Banjo Kazooie, Ocarina of Time, Starfox 64, and F-Zero X comprise some of the fondest memories of my formative years as a gamer.

That said, I have to give this one to the Wii as while the N64 has some real gems, the Wii simply has more of them; Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Metroid Prime 3, Xenoblade Chronicles, Zelda Twilight Princess & Skyward Sword, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Monster Hunter Tri, Sin & Punishment 2, Rayman Origins, The Last Story...

Worry not, i won't easily feel offended by it, they way i said, it's just my style.

Have you played Pandora's Tower yet? Along with Xenoblade and The Last Story, they are the famous Operation Rainfall trilogy RPG on Wii in it's final years

Yes, I have Pandora's Tower as well. Good game, but I thought Xenoblade and Last Story were better.

XC and TLS focus more on story and characters mix with gameplay, while PT focus a lot more on action gameplay mix with light story and multi-endings



Definitely the Wii. Only system I ever stood in line for.



N64. Super mario galaxy is not better than Mario 64 and Skyward Sword is the worst Zelda ever released by Nintendo.

How about other 1st party games too?
