I'm thinking about buying a Wii, but I am aware that the Wii is reaching the end of it's life cycle. If you were in my shoes would you still buy a Wii or wait for the Wii U? I'm new to video "gaming" so I don't know much about games or their consoles. I was given recently a Playstation 3 and while looking around for games I found some Wii games that I'd really like to play. I went ahead and bought them off eBay. It may seem like a stupid thing to do as I don't own a Wii (yet) but I gotThe Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Ōkami and Monster Hunter Tri for £12 (I thought this was a good price).
I can't really justify buying a Wii for three games could you please recommend some Wii games similar to these? I Also quite like the Final Fantasy games on the Playstation how do the Wii FF games compare? I know the gameplay is quite different for obvious reasons.
Finally I can't decided if I do buy a Wii if I should buy the "orginal" (vertical) Wii or the newer horizontal Wii. I know that the newer horizontal Wii cannont play Gamecube games but as I don't have any Gamecube games this isn't really an issue. Is rather any reason to favour one version other than backwards compatablieity?
I apologise if I have posted this in the wrong section of the forum and thank you for reading.
