    I agree.

    It is true that most games on the Wii are aimed to please the younger audience. But it is also true that not all games will be aimed to the younger audience. Plus, some of the "younger-looking" games don't literally take a five year old approach, and the age limit can extend to anything. Althuogh certain cgames entertain kids more, they are also capable of entertaining others. For example, the Mario series WAS aimed to a younger audiecne (or at least that's who gave the most attention). But that didn't stop "older" people from playing it, it still proved fun. And again, it doesn't take a baby-like approach that treats it's players like a little kid. The same goes for "older-looking" games, those that are considered "fit" for an older audience. Younger kids can get a high off of them too.

    Just because a game is "cartoony" doesn't mean it's for children.
    Granted, Dewy's Adventure for example, clearly has a target audience. This doesn't mean that an older player won't be able to appreciate the puzzles, however. Stepping out of the realm of Wii games, a certain one comes to mind which is a perfect example of this: Final Fantasy Tactics. Displayed entirely by "cartoons", this game is certainly over the head of the "kiddies", ending up one of the most respectable adult games ever released.
    On the gamecube, Killer 7 was displayed in cel-chading style, but it's certainly no "kiddie" game.
    Just wait until the new Manhunt drops. Then tell me Wii is for kids.
    Also, I think the Wii is the only console that allows you to surf for porn! Correct me if I'm wrong.
    I tend to get on around 8 o'clock PM Eastern time, and mostly play until I get too drunk.

    No.
    Sure the Wii has its kids games, but it also has a lot of games that appeal to older gamers, something the ol' Gcube did not do very well.

    We are seeing more and more mature titles.

    Also, although they can be rather easy, the controls for some games are made for older gamers.
    Funner, perhaps more advanced controls, that many young users can not grasp, but the older ones find great enjoyment with using them.

    Wii isn't for just kids but it is Kid friendly unlike 360 and PS3 which have very little kid games.

    Before I start my usual rant at people that say the Wii (and indeed Nintendo) are for kids, could someone suggest an age range that fits the 'kids only' monicker? I have been playing games since 4 (now 28) and just ondered when i supposedly stopped being a kid cos the games i play have barely changed...

    Wii is for kids, girlfriends who is a first time gamer, and casual gamer. By no means is it a hardcore gamer.

    Its a kids game because of all the cartoons. Mario galaxy, mario party 8, Mario's freakin everywhere even the vc. I'm hardcore and I play the wii only when my little bro wants to play it. You think that I would waste my game time that is 12+ hours per day on mario party 8?

    The Wii is not aimed at children. I would say that very few games on the wii are speficially for kids, and the majority that are are multi format anyway so this does not help your arguement. The whole if a game isn't for hardcore gamers it is for kids is also crazy. I admit that there are less games on the wii just now that really suck you in for days on end, but that doesn't mean that sports, mazza party, monkey ball etc etc are for kids. The cartoony visuals are nintendo's trademark almost and just becasuse something looks like it is for children doesn't meant it is. Is the simpons aimed at children? Family Guy? Manga? These are all cartoons are they not? I hav been playing mario bros games for over 20 years and cannot wait for galaxy, hopefully the best platformer ever (a dying genre in this hyper realistic HD FPS age we live in) and come on how can it be for children? Looks are very often deceptive and it is time the current playstation generation of gamers realised that just becauase something looks pretty and yyou get to shoot people, doesn't make it adult.
    Besides Red teel, Zelda, Scarface, Bully (when it comes out), Day of crisis, Manhunt 2 (not tha i#ll get to play it here in the UK) and undoubtedly many more, are all mature games not suitable for children. If young people these days (and by all accounts most of you are averging 16years old in here) think playing mario party is childish then i gotta say, u am glad i grew up in a world where mario and sonic ruled as these are the games i played as a boy, and these are the games that do it for me now too, i love Halo, Gears of War and the like but no one really makes games anymore that really do make you glad to be playing them, only Nintendo can really do this, adn maybe it is becasue i gre up with them, or maybe i am a big kid, but as long as i keep getting these great 'kids' games to play then i really don't care.
