    Oh, and all video game systems are "fads", if you look at the statistics. They are incepted, they last for awhile, then they make way for newer hardware. I'm not going to convince you that this system is somehow superior to everything else on the market, but it holds the public interest and marketshare. It will continue to dominate unless it starts exploding or causing people to die.

    The third-party support isn't even necessary to the system's success. They keep enough first-party games moving to keep people playing.
    so ur tellin me without 3rd party help u will be content with ur wii? Not me. There is no way i am goin to sit there and play "kiddie" games everyday cuz we all know thats wat nintendo is known for. and not all video game systems are fads...take the ps2 for example i can bet any amount of money that people who have one are still playing theres..i know i am.... i just find this funny cuz im having the same debate in 2 different threads...but if u go to the other thread i think its call where is the 3rd party love or something i quoted Miyamoto and he stated how the Wii IS the gamecube.

    Content? Yes. Ecstatic? No.

    "Kiddie" games? Which ones? Like Galaxy, Twilight Princess, MP3? I'd never really thought of them as kiddie games, but I guess since they aren't "hardcore" like Halo and whatnot that they might be classified as such in comparison.

    See, I like to play games based on entertainment value. Simply put, if a game is entertaining (kiddie or not), I will play it to death. If the game sucks, then it sucks and that's that.

    PS2 is a fad. It's reaching it's end-of-life while we speak. The only reason it hasn't died out completely is because it's successor (PS3) isn't doing so well. If the PS3 suddenly started selling and having a ton of great games, the PS2 would be dropped faster than F-bombs in Superbad. I own a PS2 and stopped playing it months before I got the Wii. The last game I played was FFXII, and that pretty much killed it for me.

    I accept that the Wii is an upgraded GameCube. Like the PS3 is an upgraded PS2, and the XBOX360 is an upgraded XBOX. What's the difference?

    It's getting off-topic. The Wii is in no danger, not for at least a few years. I'm saying that the Wii could survive that long with only first-party support--it doesn't need the hardcore gaming community's support to exist thanks to genius marketing towards "casual".

    You keep saying 'no third party games are out' because they dont want to 'downgrade'. Like i said there are 5 Wii games on my Christmas list and all 5 are third party games so im not sure where you are getting the idea that there are no third party games.

    So you think next year the Wii will be a forgotten fad because nobody will want to play SSBB or Mario Kart, i mean, those games have never been successful right? No casuals are going to want Wii-Fit either right? Thats just crazy talk.

    I've got the holy trinity of Nintendo, but I've also got MOHH2, RE:UC, Zack and Wiki...I'd have more if I could afford them. There are several good games for this system--don't give up hope for it yet! It usually takes developers almost a year to fully understand how to work with a system, and another year to master it. Look at the DS, it wasn't great in it's first year. Now, it's got a TON of fantastic games and is doing better all the time.

    I can't really speak about the cartoon-like characters Nintendo uses. That's their trademark, I guess. It's going to be up to the third-party guys to give us more realistic characters, or at least less-cartoony ones (is that a word??)

    But, if you don't like their games, it's like you said--you still play your PS2, right?

    You really need to get out more and see what games are actually available. Trauma Center, Godfather, Scarface, RE4, Manhunt 2, MOH Heroes 2, RE:UC etc etc etc, none of these games are actually cartoon character based, quite a few are very violent in nature, some more so because of Wii controls.

    You are probably in a very small minority that thinks SSBB looks good but the gameplay is not.
