    How has your gaming experience been on Wii?

    Hey Fellow Gamers,
    I'm doing a paper in my class on gaming and how it's changed with the technology of controllers that are out. With the release of the other systems this year that "mimick" the Wii, I just want to hear your take on why gaming in the Wii is special to you? Looking forward to your answers.

    Dealing with the controllers, I took on the wii because I was excited to use something new. Video game controllers have always kept a similar design, and the wii blew that right out of the water. In the following ways and more:

    -2 parts: one for each hand
    -triggers on both parts
    -Sensor bar (pointing at the screen)
    -Speaker within the remote
    -Motion registration (the ability for something to happen when you shake both the wiimote or nunchuck)
    -Home button
    -Power button on the controller
    -Ability to use an appendage with the controller, such as wii wheel or guitar

    These are very basic.

    How has gaming changed with the controller? More motion and interaction with a game (so when you jerk your controller to the left in hope to win a mario kart race it actually happens). Also the wii's motion-esque gaming style has greatly increased interest in video games among all ages, and are much more family-oriented.

    Well considering I have played on my Saturn more than I have on my Wii this year id say not at all.
    The Wii isn't special to me

    Why, how now Prinny! That's not a very good source to cite for this child's paper. Flat knavery, if you ask me.

    The new Wii Motion controllers, to me, were very innovative until Nintendo started to go ass backwards by making No New motion control games, but side scrollers that you only use the controller sideways like NES. If I wanted that, I'd buy an actual NES or SNES.

    ^True, but lets face it there is only so long that a game that makes you stand up and move around like a five year old on a sugar rush can be fun for

    Isn't standing up an optional thing, or are there games that force you to? I never stood up for any games except Wii Sports Golf & Bowling. Didn't play baseball.

    I spent years not moving my arms while playing games.
    Moving them round like some noob playing a racing game isnt something I like to do

    I don't understand peripherals like the Wii Wheel, Wii Fit Board, or the Zapper. I never enjoyed playing Mario Kart Wii with the Wheel or playing SKATE iT with the Wii Fit Board plus I don't own one or a Zapper. I enjoy what I am given from the start, the Joystick, but since this the Wii its Motion Controls.

    A little thing, there´s no need to argue (I hope), is that the Wii has set the standars of what gaming is going to be in the future, good or bad, is up two you to decide it.
