A post of mine from another forum. I'm REALLY not happy about brawl online
"In your effort to "save the children" from scary online predators playing videogames you've completely alienated an entire demographic of people.....adults. I bought SSBB in hopes of great online gaming as well as equal gameplay between either mode...moronic "friend-codes" or "anonymous". You failed miserably. What I get as a 31 year old gamer looking to go online for gaming with SSBB is nothing more than a barrier of friend codes, wii codes and a stripped down "anonymous" mode that doesn't even work. Look around Nintendo, kids exchanging codes with other people online and playing is no more or less safe than just letting people connect and play online. If anything, you've made it easier for pedophiles to target kids on boards by making it obvious where to get children's information....RIGHT HERE on IGN, Wii Chat, etc... Anywhere where there's Wii code exchanges, there's kids. Bet you didn't think of that did you Nintendo? Do you honestly think every gamer is still in 5th grade reading Nintendo Power? Do you really think we want to spend weeks collecting new wii codes and friend codes everytime you release another game with idiotic online architecture behind it? I'm so disgusted with the pathetic effort they put into making online gaming easier for people over 18 that I give up. You let me down Nintendo."
