Hahahaha, this post is priceless, it truly shows that a lot of you are not willing to move on onto new things! I'm happy for Nintendo and the Wii, I'm glad they came and are putting a stop to the ongoing sequels, I'm glad they stepped out of the box and stopped Sony and MS's monopoly! All of you that are not willing to move on sound exactly like those in the discussion of Blu-Ray vs Digital Media "uh, I rather have a physical copy cuz owning digital media is not the same." You're getting stuck in the past and eventually, everything you like an love its going to be in a collector's store cuz the mainstream that control the flow of the market has decided that they want to go where Nintendo is going, and its next competitor will have to follow it and improve on it.



What are you looking at, nerd?

How can it be fun if all you're doing is pressing buttons and otherwise staying completely still and not involved?

You just said you got into gaming on the NES, so presumably from then until now you've been a gamer. What were you doing before the Wii was released if it wasn't sitting down with a joypad in your hand pressing buttons? Your argument makes no sense at all unless you were being sarcastic and I missed it.

Same dude. The most popular console is also the most worthless one... unlike the three prevous generations (PS1, PS2, SNES are all A++ systems, together they are the golden age of gaming for me).

Personally, I don't count the Wii as a competitor this gen. The war is still going on - and we'll see who comes out on top - Sony or M$, they shall be proclaimed winner.

I'd like to add that it's nothing personal Wii fans... it's just that I hate the Wii and it's style of "gaming".

Hahahahahahahahahahaha.

Oh yeah, the PS2 was such a powerhouse compared to the graphically inferior Xbox and Gamecube. And the SNES was the clear technical powerhouse over the Genesis.

In the real world, the graphical powerhouse console has never won. The NES was a generation behind the systems it was fighting, as were the SNES and PS2. The PS1 might be considered on par with the N64, as graphics were about the same but the PS1 had longer load times.

 

As for the 'casual' games, you should be praising them. Every gamer starts out as a non-gamer, then becomes a 'casual' gamer, before graduating to 'hardcore'. The first game I ever played was some hilariously bad Mickey Mouse game for the original NES, and if it wasn't for that game I wouldn't be playing games now. In 5-10 years, you're going to be seeing a huge surge of girls who started gaming on Horsez find their way into the market as adult, 'hardcore' gamers.

 

Oh, and by the way, I hate the PS3/360 and their style of 'gaming'. How is it a game if all you do is watch cut scenes/stare at the pretty graphics. How can it be fun if all you're doing is pressing buttons and otherwise staying completely still and not involved? I hope we don't see any more of these stupid 'non-games' like MGS4/GTA4/Halo 3 which are more like Novels than Games, Amirite?

 

Who said the graphics even matter? I'd be fine with PS2 graphics now as well... don't attack me blindly and without basis. It's the PS2's games that are far superior to the Wii's.

As for "novels" and your cutscene problem.. it might be true about MGS, but Halo and GTA? did you play either? they are both 95% gameplay. Gameplay of higher caliber and interest for me than the Wii.

 



Also, the PS3 and 360 have done absolutely NOTHING to expand the gaming audience while the Wii is trying hard to do that.

What...you want less gamers in the world now?

Who could not predict Nintendo's success with so many amazing Gamecube titles smoothly porting to the Wii.



The thread starter, and all those who agreed with him, need to stop bitching and get over it. Such sissies.


The Wii is getting good games. And, imo, will have Ps2 success when all is said and done. I mean, Nintendo are focusing on Casual just like they are with hardcore. Doesn't mean they will stop caring! There will even be megahits of the gen on Wii. I even begin to wonder how many people in this thread liked Nintendo to begin with. (many sony fanboys flocked here like Jo21.)


So, if you don't care, shut the fuck up, grow some balls, swallow up your damn pride, and give credit where credit is due.

you graduate from Casual-gamer to Core-gamer, not hardcore. A hardcore gamer is a true gamer, some one who set out to master the games he plays. A hardcore gamer is neutral gamer who has no console preference.



Nothing to see here, move along

I don't care about gaming markets expanding , it doesn't put any money in my pocket , doesn't make gaming any more enjoyable.

 

I want the gaming I know and love to stay that's it.

The PS3's bought for watching blu ray movies will be later used for gaming, I'm sure of that. (or already are)

The X360 Arcade model is quite popular among casual gamers, and it's doing its part as well.

Maybe their investment into expanding the audience is not as big as the Wi's but it is there.
