Im wondering if anyone else is in the same boat as I.
I'm 30 years old, married, have a kid on the way, and work a 9-5 job in advertising. I've been gaming since the days of the 8-bit ninendo, started with that, then the super nintend, PS, and PS2. I wanted a PS3 when they released but were to expensive. I ended up getting a wii off craigslist a few months back, and was initially over excited about the purchase. The level of entertainment it adds to partys and groups is quite valuable.
But now after the initial wow factor has worn off, I am starting to think that the wii is rather dry and lacks depth. Of all the games I've played Zelda is the only true game that keeps me coming back, and that is Nintendo's trademark game. But I can't help but think that it could be the same game with a standard controller. Tiger Woods is the only game I've played that really emphasizes true wiimote actions, and it does that only at a mediocre level. I got the bigs, which is fun, but lacks a lot of depth that a baseball game should have, and I got bored after a couple weeks. I bought Strikers, super fun game... but again, it lacks depth. After 2 weeks of play, I've seen all there is to see. There is nothing to gain anymore from play, the only thing left to do is go online and play people, over, and over, and over. Excite truck was fun, for a couple weeks. All the other games I have tried were seriously lacking.
I'm not on here trying to rip the wii, I just want some input from others on this board. Maybe some sort of motivational speech, or at least to hear that I'm not the only one that thinks this.
I've started to look at the games to be released in the future, and I'm not seeing a lot of promise. I can't help but think that future sports games will all fall short like the games we've already see released.
Bottom line, I've sunk enough into the wii with games and accessories, that I could have gotten a PS3 by now. I still have fun on the wii, but is it a lost cause? Can I just sit around for a year until developers start to 'get' it? The wii lacks graphics, proper sound output, data storage, complex games...
Just don't know what to do.
Anyone else have anything to say? Again, please don't flame. I'm not some big PS fan coming on here trying to ravel the wii community. Just another wii fan on the fence.
