Well technically, you could use the excuse. Considering it was its first year which saw barely any online games, and the one's we did get were not too great. Mainly because Nintendo has not been big on online in the past and are just starting to get the ball rolling. Games like Brawl and Animal Crossing could have great online, online can be done on the Wii.Originally Posted by T3kNi9e
Also, the thing is with most Nintendo games, online play just wouldn't work.
I know you used Metroid Prime 3 as an example, but the online in that game would have just been weird. Honestly, I never once thought Super Smash Bros. would have an online game, I just didn't think it would work. Games like Animal Crossing would work nicely with Online play if done right.
What Nintendo needs to do is make more games that would be good online material, like you suggested..More FPS's etc. But if Nintendo plans on keeping pace with their casual stuff, online for Wii may never be accomplished, at least not to what it could be.
