    No it is for everyone even hardcore gamers thats why the Wii had so many Product Sales but yeah most of the games are for kids but some games are just for everyone you know? like Wii Sports for everyone, Resident Evil 4 mostly for Teens/Young Adults, Zelda for everyone.......

    Although Nintendo themselves mainly concentrate on "kiddy" games, at least they don't stop third parties publishing more mature titles like back in the SNES days. There's Resident Evil 4, Metroid Prime 3, Godfather: Blackhand Edition, Red Steel, etc., none of which could be described as kid's games.



    I never add friend codes.

    Yes, i've noticed that too. But it's not a kid's console. This image of the wii being for everyone is pretty much true (that includes hardcore). Right now, wii is very mainstream, but hardcore titles are hitting soon (bwii) (MOH H2) (Super Mario Galaxy) and (smash 2008). Plus all the other Napalmbrain mentioned.

    Of all the titles mentioned it could be argued, however it's games like Manhunt 2 that remains a "no contest" on the kiddie only factor. Not only was this game banned due to it's "Adult Only" rating, even watered down it still remains banned in the UK while set for release October 31st.

    Wii is for everyone, that's nintendo's target as well.....

    even for women who never play video games, even for people who never played video games before, the sales say it all.....

    For some reason, there is a very vocal subset of FPS gamers (The so-called "Hardcore" gamers) who feel that marketing games other than FPS games some how invalidates a system.

    Wii has over a dozen T rated FPS games, and half a dozen M rated FPS games, with more coming, but since they also market games aimed at other groups, like party games, Zelda, and Mario, this somehow makes Wii a 'kiddie console'.

    They also tend to say that RPGs are stupid and pointless.

    I'm sure that somewhere there's a group of FPS gamers who have quit pleasuring themselves over a copy of Halo 3 just long enough to make a dozen forum posts about how Beautiful Katimari is killing the XBox 360.

    Dude one of the most cartoonish games that I am playing at the moment is battalion wars... Let me see a kid play that game and beat the first 3 levels. I don't know what is wrong with this generation but from what I remember all the old golden games WERE cartoonish... What is wrong with that anymore? I mean comon, what did mortal kombat do to your poor soul.
