    In my case, I'd say that the Wii has indeed lived up to my expectations!

    I'm not really a gamer. I only bought the Wii for our family (and also friends who visit) to enjoy. In fact, if not for the Wii then we wouldn't have any games console at all. If I would've bought an XBox or Playstation, only our eldest son (7) and maybe myself would use it. The simple reason is that most people (who aren't into video games) can be bothered to sit down and fiddle with controller pads for hours on end.

    So far, the family (myself included) has had lots of fun with the Wii and it's definitely a big attraction when friends come to visit (even more so when we have parties). The games are short and the control mechanism is easy to understand (what could be easier than swinging your arms?). This means anyone can play and you can quickly take turns.

    Sure, the Wii can't compete with the XBox 360 or PS3 in terms of raw processing power but it's obviously not meant to. The Wii was designed to appeal to a broader market. Of course, Nintendo needs to address the needs of the true gamers and I believe they will. Firstly though, I think they need to capture this wider target group.

    Considering the fact that I (and I guess others like me) have bought a Wii and that I'm happy with it, I'd say Nintendo has succeeded.

    if you dont like the controls to Call of duty 3, its probably because you CAN'T AIM.

    COD has the best first person shooter control scheme for wii, hand down. The graphics are bad because it is just a PS2 port with wii controls.......like most of the games that are out right now. Patience is the key here. Good games are coming.
    Death to false metal!

    Hail Nintendo!

    The more I play the wii the more I like it. I agree that we should all give it some time to really show it's capibilities. As for game selection it is not a issue for me as I missed out on almost all Nintendo games in the past.

    when people say controls suck, what they really mean is that they are so shit at the game they have to put it down to something wrong with the game and nothing wrong with there shitness.

    I just got a Wii and honestly I'm a little let down but I still like the system. Every game has originality thanks to the controls but at the same time they all feel mediocre. For example I see great potential with FPS games for the system but talented developers need to improve both the controls and graphics and add in multiplayer (looking at COD3), just look at Red Steel its fun game but bland graphics and sloppy controls really dropped the core on it.

    The other problem I'm having with the wii is minigames its going to get old fast I have Warioware, Wii Play (bought for the extra controller), Wii Sports, and Rayman Raving Rabbids so I definetly don't want Mario Party or any other party styled mingame collections anytime soon.

    Virtual Console is kind of a bust emulation has been out so long the only thing I would ever download would N64 titles. I think if Nintendo wanted to really blow gamers away add wiimote controls into some classic games heck I would pay a little bit more money for Perfect Dark, Golden Eye, and so on if I could control it like Red Steel (example).

    I think the Wii has an extreme amount of potential but developers reaaly need to step up to the plate to make the games feel substantial or the console will turn into a giant media fad failure.

    So far it's lived up to my expectations. I'm not using it much at the moment, but I guess that's to be expected if you get a system as soon as it launches. It'll probably be about a year until I can give a more precise opinion, since most of the promising games aren't out yet.



    I never add friend codes.

    I've only played Zelda & Wii Sports, but thus far, I'm happy with it...

    With Twilight Princess being one of the best in the zelda series made (I'm a hardcore Link to the Past fan.) I was extremely happy with, as someone else put, the 'subtle' controls that worked amazingly well for the game.

    I've put a lot of time into wii sports, particularly boxing... being someone who used to box in real life, it's not the same, but it's just as fun (and doesn't hurt after haha.)

    I really wanna play Trauma Center & Wario Ware, as well as Wii Play..s
    There's a handful of titles I absolutley cannot wait for (Smash Bros. Brawl)

    As far as titles currently released... I agree with Aylwin..
    Wii is the only one of the current 3 consoles that ANYONE can pick up and enjoy... first you bring out the easy stuff that might be fun, but not fill a regular gamer's desires, but overall, it will increase the number of gamers in existance... do you really think that 30+ year old couple who really had no interest in today's gaming would pick up the new COD, or some other type of 'hardcore' game like halo, a final fantasy game, or anything else that would take effort for them to play, if they would get frusterated on figuring out the 98279874 button controller?

    Sure in general, a lot of the people on this board won't have a problem with it, I've gamed all my life, and can handle whatever the industry wants to toss at me, but looking at Wii as more than a toy, it's Nintendo's investment, you gotta respect them putting down a platform that will succeed, not come close to failing for the company as previous attempts almost had.
