    WiiGod. I think Rajveer's comment was directed at Kittie Rose, not the original thread author .

    And Kittie Rose, poking fun is all well and good, enjoyable even. But I can't help but sense a malicious undertone under your surprisingly obvious sarcasm (That is not an insult, sarcasm is hard to do in just text...). You have the vibe of a 'disappointed past believer', or perhaps a 'hardcore gamer with the classic mantra "graphics really don't matter, and if I say it enough I'll really believe it"'....
    Could just be me though.

    Graphics do matter. They are a part of the gaming experience and to think it makes one less "shallow" is ludicrous; if the Mona Lisa was heavily pixelised and in 16 colours, would it be just as much a masterpiece? Probably not.

    Graphics aren't everything, for sure, and they have been overemphasised. However the Wii has UNDEREMPHASISED them, and Twilight Princess aside, has underemphasised the "epicness" games like Final Fantasy, Shenmue and MGS tend to have, which is often tied with the graphics.

    I am genuinely disappointed because I was a huge follower of the Wii. I truly believed they were going to charge only $200 for it w/ Wii Sports, and that the graphics would be a tiny bit better; either that or it comes with a second Wiimote. That's what I was expecting to get. I paid over $325(in euros) for the console with Wiisports and ONE controller. So of course I'm disappointed. Since I'm a huge Nintendo fan I was prepared to pay the price but I still believe it's unfair, many of my friends can't afford it, and I feel sorry for them as they're missing out on the fun.

    How do you think I feel about your "Appeal to Maturity"? What a terrible way of arguing, or posting in general.

    kitty, i think the good games are on their way. I think nintendo is just holding back a few of its secret at the current time. This was a HOLIDAY launch. I think nintendo's current focus is to suck in all of the non-gamers first during the holidays. This would be easy for them right now because it is the cheapest console of the three and has the most availability (discluding xbox 360.) I think after they have gone through the initial sales of consoles, THEN the good games will come. Have you seen screens or vids for super smash bros? The graphics are AWESOME.
