    help me understand

    I just bought my Wii this week. I don't own a 360 or PS3. I noticed on metacritic that the 360 has 73 titles rated at 80 or above, the PS3 has 30 titles, and the Wii has only 9! WTF??? I thought the Wii was the best seller? Why so few good games? I guess I just want to feel a little better about my purchase.

    I am having fun with Wii Sports and just bought Zelda.

    Metacritic is great for getting the overall view.

    Those casual games that are selling a lot aren't getting that high of scores.

    WTF? SSX: blur got like a 7.

    they seem to be taking a lot of scores from bias magazines I wouldn't trust it. A lot of magazines and sites are anti-wii.

    you just have to find a few trustworthy ones and use those.

    *Also consider the wii 360 has been out A LOT longer.

    i notcided this the other day, while i alos notice 360 has hundreds more than wii on there list, yet it has less games in the red than te wii.

    but i generally listen to this as there are a lot of crappy wii games due to developers seeing games made for it as a quick cash scheme, so they rush
