Whats so "fun" about the wii?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Whats so "fun" about the wii?

The Wii is a gaming machine, and most of these games aren't story-heavy and intriguing which fuels traditional gamers to play more and more. What's so great about the wii is that it doesn't use a traditional controller, making less complicated and therefore more enjoyable for people don't play video games.

If I received a dollar for everytime I heard my mom say "where's the A button." before the Wii, I'd... probably wouldn't be a very rich person because she didn't want to play again because of the controller. At least with the wii, the controls are simple because they require actions that are done in real life, therefore simple to most.

Whether or not the Wii can be called "fun" for people can't be truly be determined but for the most part, normal people seem to enjoy it.

Not everyone wants an extensive story with realistic graphics, it's more about being able to PLAY foremost.

I haven't really played a lot of serious Wii games, but the party games are what's fun about it for me. It's required playing with one or more people, but getting a group playing Wii Sports is what I've found the most enjoyable from the Wii.

I don't know, more casual gamers (including my parents) I've had to instruct on how to use the Wii controller with asked that question a lot. I'll agree that motion gestures and less buttons would probably be easier to remember, but I haven't had the same success as you. My mom has a habit of apparently letting go of B or "That trigger button" when she plays bowling in Wii Sports.

Every other post on this site, you read about how much "fun" sex is. But what is sex? Sex is an activity thats "enjoyable". That said, I'd argue that "sex" is entirely subjective and people should stop using the word as a synonym for "women".

I lost interest in the actual flesh of women that the world seems to focus so much on. There's a girl in my class, but I haven't touched her because there's nothing that interests me. I don't want to go and have sex. I'd rather go to my room (in the basement) and look at internet porn.

These days, it seems like I'm weird because I don't want to have "sex". But I find it relaxing and interesting searching through porn while lying on a bed and would rather watch a live webcam if I wanted to talk to friends. We scream when we she cums (in the cam), laugh when we make a comment about our huge penis (in the chat). Even though it could get frustrating when you start chaffing, its a sweet frustration and altogether "enjoyable" experience.

So my question to you is: aren't we (my friend' and I) having "sex"?

There ya go I fixed your post.

Hmm never been banned before on a site ever.  Oh well, this site pisses me off on how huge a whinners there are.

 

But whiners I can deal with, but the people that are only there to try and make others feel bad about their choice in games.  I believe I can find out if I like something or not, thank you very much.

 

Why the sexual innuendo? You think girls are my problem? You really need to bring your girlfriend around me lol. Lets not even go there. I play games in my basement because I like the peace and quiet sometimes especially after a hard day's work. It doesn't mean I don't socialize. You just might be banned for that kind of content. I won't be reporting you though because I really don't care. I've never been banned. There's a reason for that: I make sensible posts.

How did I make you feel bad about your gaming preferences? The wii can't take any criticism because it is perfect right? I didn't even mean to criticize the wii. The thread was only meant to give recognition to other consoles as well.

Many posters seem to have failed to read the OP. I was actually trying to prove that the wii is NOT the only "fun" console not that it is not "fun" to its owners. My post title is a little misleading because it relies heavily on my personal views and I personally, didn't have any "fun" with the wii.

I must be lucky, then again my mother only seems interested in Tennis and Boxing. Neither of which require much A/B/C/Z action.

wasn't exactly talking about your post in making fun of someones gaming preference. that was to the majority of the posters in this site constantly making topics that are "indirectly" a bash at someones tastes.

And the sexual inuendo was it just was easy to fit that into your quote. I had something else typed that had to do with controls, but then just seemed like I could do one of those things where you throw in a word in places and read the sentence over again. Well the way you described fun and what not sex just fit in there easy. NOt much changing.

Was no real bash at you, just thought it was funny. And what would bringing my girlfriend aroudn you do, you think you can steal her away or something your so smooth. I seriously have never in my life ever met a cool fanboy. Any one i know that is totally against a console or just loves one hardcore is just a total typical nerd looking guy. ANd pretty much every friend I have plays games or has a system and only the select few fanboys are the super nerd type



I wasn't refering to you



the graphics



You know... i kinda get what Pristine is saying.... I mean theres been a few times over the past generation of gaming or so where I don't have as much interest in playing certain games, and I've found my self playing some games as if it were a chore just to get through them and not really enjoy it.

I might get flamed big-time for this but the most recent one was Brawl... I mean I had already spent hundreds of hours in multiplayer with buddies and unlocking trophies on my own in Melee, n by the time Brawl finally got released after years of waiting it was just ho-hum for me and felt like more of the same... i completed Subspace, unlocked all the characters and did the events and after that i havent really touched it since, and i had to force myself through alot of it too in order to complete it. Just wasn't as fun for me as when i first played Melee all those moons ago.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

Truth is, I may spend some of my free time defending the ps3 on this site but you may be mistaking me for someone who wears a t-shirt thats says "play b3yond" and that every other word popping out the person's mouth is PS. I have friends that are xbox fans, we hang out and party together. We just go home to play different consoles. I've played some Halo 3, Gears of War, Bioshock and other 360 games. Its thanks to my friends. Its all games people!

I'm not saying I'm super smooth. Most girls find me attractive is what I was getting at. This is easy to tell. I'll leave that as that because I don't really want to turn this topic into what it is not lol.
