    Wii games MUCH easier than earlier Nintendo games?

    When I got my Wii I though that was the case, SMG is tons of fun but really is pretty easy but I thought it might have had something to do with the fact that when I was playing SMB, SMB2 and SMB3 I was 9-10 years old and didn't have the dexterity or mental capacity that I have now so those games seemed easier.

    Well I downloaded SMB3 for NES and MAN is it ever a lot harder than SMG. You have to finish an entire level without dying to be able to save to the next level and you get so few 1ups that it makes it quite a lot more challenging.

    Other games like MOH H2 are also incredibly easy, even SSBB on intense is a lot easier to get through than SMB3.

    Anyone else have the same experience?
    Being really good at video games is not a real accomplishment in life.

    Its not just nintendo that does this, its the whole industry. If you can beat a game fast, you will move on to the next game. This means more sales. Even for a game of this generation, SMG is easy.

    Yes sadly this is true.
    But HEY - if you guys want to get your asses rocked into a whimpering puddle of tears, then I highly recommend CONTRA 4 for the DS.
    I myself am a videogame warrior from the NES era and can stomp just about any game I come across and well......Contra 4 had me on the verge of an aneurysm and a 1/2 second from smashing my DS into a million pieces.
    It is F#$%ING HAAAAAARD. No joke.

    But also realistically, to get all 120 stars was pretty difficult as well, to 'beat' the game was easy but some of those purple coin challenges were pretty insane. Like 'Luigi's Purple Coins' and that final one on the ship that auto-scrolls....ridiculous.
    Metroid Prime 3 was too easy, No More Heroes was fairly easy onece you got the hang of it....on and on.
    Contra 4 though....*shudder*....

    Bring back the old school difficulty of games such as Kid Icarus or Battletoads or even better at least give us a difficulty level!

    I thought getting all 120 stars in SMG was also a decent challenge, which was actually a surprise. But yeah, it's games across the board. The one thing I can't stand is the "one size fits all" difficulty settings on some games. At least give us a choice. The more mass market games become the more the hardcore are left out. It seems that game makers are looking at the casual players as their target audience more and more. Thank goodness for online multiplayer.

    I agree. The later the games become, the easier they are.
