They have casual appeal because they are familiar characters, but they aren't "party games."Originally Posted by Cpt.McCloud
Judging from your post count, you clearly like to spend more time interacting with digital people than real ones. If that works for you, fine.
As far as the pre-teen with bad grammar telling me that I'm the reason Wii doesn't have decent online play:
I've played videogames since 1987. I've owned every major system except PS3 and all different types of games. Because of my support for the industry, I am a reason the Wii, 360 and PS3 were made along with you and everyone else than loves and purchases videogames.
However, the Wii is the first system to me that doesn't start to feel like work after a while. It's always a pleasure to play, like videogames are supposed to be. They're meant to be a distraction, not some life-consuming addiction.
So am I not a hardcore gamer because I don't want to play strangers online? If yes, then fine. I'm not hardcore. But I have a lot more friends than friend codes. And I'm happy with that.
