    if ur looking for a fix ull always be feigning like an addict. have faith that nintendo knows what they're doing. they wont disappoint... at least in the long run!
    just my 2 cents.
    But if most of their customers are non gamers, then why would there be large amounts of "hardcore" games? I doubt that anyone who buys a Wii for the mini games and stuff is going to go buy Final Fantasy. (If it were on the Wii. Its too early for me to think of an example that is on the Wii...) I thought that Nintendo would know what they were doing with the GC last generation and it wouldn't be a disappointment, but we all know how that went.......

    Ok, 2 things.

    First, the Wii was not built to be played by yourself. If you're thinking that the Wii will be able to satisfy your singleplayer gaming needs, then I think you need to do some research. Nintendo has always been focused around multiplayer (with a few great exceptions), so if you lack friends, or if you don't play games with them a lot, then I'm not sure why you bought a Wii in the first place.

    Secondly, if you don't have a job, then how on earth do you intend to buy an Xbox360 or a PS3? Once you have that, how are you going to afford the $60 a piece games? Do you have a nice HD compatible TV that will utilize those pretty graphics? Are you planning on buying the core package, the premium, or the elite?

    You keep bringing up that you're going to miss out on some great games. Thats right, you will. But, if I'm correct in assuming that you only plan on owning one console, then this will always be the case. If you stick with the Wii you'll miss out on CoD4, Assassin's Creed, MGS4, Gears of War, Ninja Gaiden, Rainbow Six: Vegas, Devil May Cry 3, etc, etc. There's lots of games you'll miss out on if you keep the Wii. The same holds true for the Xbox. Then you'll miss out on all the Mario Sports titles, Mario Galaxy, SSBB, Metroid, MGS4, Gran Turismo 4, etc.

    Also, if you're already tired of the 15 games (?!?!) that you have, then maybe this type of gaming isn't for you. You'd be better off playing World of Warcraft or something similar. I refuse to believe that you've fully exhausted everything there is to do in all 15 of your games, and have you delved into the VC or Gamecube library at all? I just now found a Wii about 2 weeks ago and I'm having a blast going back and playing all my favorites from the NES and N64. Have you gone back through and mastered Super Mario 64 yet? Star Fox? Mario Kart? Ocarina of Time?

    It seems to me that you'll probably get bored of any system you get in a matter of a few short months, so all you'll be doing is crippling your game library (and your wallet) by switching through the consoles. Keep the Wii.

    I still play my NES. Consoles never grow old for me.

    If you want to switch, I'd recommend the Xbox, since its cheaper and has a better library of games than the PS3. Its online features will also keep you occupied for far longer than the Wii or the PS3. Plus its got some great games coming: Halo 3, Assassin's Creed, Devil May Cry 3, Grand Theft Auto IV, etc. Hell, Metal Gear Solid may even be ported over to it not long after its released.

    If I had to recommend some games that are out now, depending on the type of game you fancy, I'd go with:

    FPS:
    Rainbow Six: Vegas
    Gears of War
    Halo 2

    RPG/Action
    Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
    Ninja Gaiden: Black
    That zombie game set in a mall, I can't remember the name but its lots of fun
    KOTOR 1 and 2

    Cheers!
    Jason
