My wife bought me Zelda for the Wii and a $250 gift card to purchase the console. Problem is I was looking at the game list for the Wii, and so far nothing has me too excited. Sure Zelda is going to be solid, it's an awesome franchise, but I played Gears of War at my friends house this weekend, and all I can say is "Chainsaw Bayonet!"
Seems Nintendo is making the same mistakes it made with the Gamecube; limited online play, poor third party support, relying too heavily on nostalgia and kids games.
Granted I have yet to play a Wii, and I'm pretty sure it'll be a blast, but it was the same with the Gamecube. Cheaper than everyone else, graphics not bad, but not amazing, fun games that get people together laughing. Then after a year, third party games seemed to lack features of the other two consoles, and third party games not being released on the Cube. Kids games flood the market, and you wait a year to get a game like Resident Evil 4.
I was excited about the Wii, but after seeing reviews for games released so far, I don't think I'll be purchasing it. Looks like it's already started, only a few of the games have online multiplayer, some are missing content that the other consoles have, and the next big thing is Brawl Brothers.
