Godfather is a terrible example. Zelda is too.
Now, if you want to hammer away with the Bigs, well you have a good example because the other versions were online.
Have the motion sensing controls reached their potential yet? No way. The console hasn't been out a year yet and this is a completely new way to play. But, we've seen a few games that show us some potential. Madden '07, Godfather, The Bigs, the list goes on. There are a bunch of games coming out soon that will really be made for the Wii and its controls. Let's hold off blasting this control setup until the various game developers have really gotten down how to use it and how to develop for it.
Again, there was no reason at any point to believe Metroid Prime 3 was going to be online. Nintendo and Retro never gave any indication it would be online. We had people a week ago arguing that the absence of the WiFi sticker on the final box art didn't mean anything. People buried their heads in the sand because they wanted a big first person online game. Metroid isn't that. Wii will get one eventually.
