For christmas I received a total of $300.00 in ebgames gift certificates, and I was thinking about what to purchase.
I currently own a pretty decent PC and an Xbox (not 360)
I am 35 and like different types of games, rpg's, fps, strategy, action etc..
Lately however it seem that most games that are coming out seem to lack alot of originality and is just the same old playstyle with a new paintjob.
So what I am asking is how original is the playstyle for the Wii. Is it something that really gives gameplay a "fresh" feel. Or does it feel like more of a fad, cool and fun at the begining, but you see yourself losing interest in the long haul. Not necessarily about the Wii itself but the controls.
I am thinking of getting a Wii mostly because of the new control system, but I like the following as well.
Virtual Console - I love the old school games (hey i am 35 )
Online gaming - I really liked x-box live, but i dont expect Nintendo to get at the level since it's free. But I do hope that it's somewhat similar.
And last but not least Nintendo's original games.
So is this the right buy for me? Or is the Wii idea just a hopeful one and will pass by the waysside with VR and Eyetoy
