    i don't know if i should put this thread here, but anyway...

    *clears throat* ok, iv'e been a hardcore gamer for a while, and nintendo used to be all hardcore gaming, and no casual gaming (well some). but now nintendo have changed, and now there focusing on casual gaming, and it's working for there sales, but now i'm afraid nintendo are losing there touch on the hardcore gamers. and i'm acctually thinking of getting a 360. it's dissapointing to see how far nintendo acctually go to improve their sales,i mean without us, nintendo might not even exist.

    remember this is all in my oppinion, so don't flame me, or fill up the threads with complaints and stuff like that. just please just tell me if you agree or not.

    A lot of Wii owners are feeling this way, it seems. Just wait for the big releases. :D

    I don't believe in this opinion. Yes we have more casual games, but we still get our "hardcore" offerings. Zelda: TP, Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3 Corruption, Super Smash Brothers Brawl, Super Paper Mario, Battalion Wars 2 ect. I could go on further but there are plenty of "hardcore" titles. Infact we are getting them quicker then what we got on the Game Cube. These casual games can also be fun, mini game compliations may not be considered "hardcore" but if I have a couple of mates over they're a blast. Heck I'm sure you enjoyed Wii Spots, but that isn't exactly "hard core".

    Nintendo are standing firm that the WII is for casual gamers, they said there targeting the non-gamers with the console, so if u want "hardcore" games you will have to relay on the third party developers

    So you don't call games like Metroid Prime 3, Legend of Zelda or Super Mario Galaxy "hardcore"?

    I do see your point
    I mean the Online isn't close enough to good yet. And hardcore gamers need these options.

    Headset:
    Sure Nintendo don't want kids talking to strangers. So they could have a password protection within the parental controls to mute both mic and mic sounds during online play.

    A better online experience is needed really. The hardcore games are coming. But with Metroid NOT being online it was a sure let down. At least we have Brawl, but by then many people would've changed onto 360 or PS3.

    They have the casual gamers sorted now. They need to get on the hardcore train and catch up

    Oh come one, not another rant.
    This whole hardcore gamers thing has been banded about so many times on this forum, its always the same and to be honest its getting boring.
    If you dont like the games that are coming out on the Wii, and you dont play it anymore, and you dont think its the console for you, SELL IT AND BUY SOMETHING ELSE!
    Its just dull having to read rant after rant, nintendo should do this, nintendo should do that...
    They are doing what's good for their sales, there are more impressive games coming out, but they cant please everyone (just read some of the 'My letter to nintendo' threads around here).

    i agree with Eagles 100%

    There are plenty of hardcore games coming from Nintendo, and these are coming faster than they did with gamecube, by the end of gamecube's first year all it had was like luigi's mansion, loz: ww, mario party 4, metroid prime , ssbm and pikmin

    now let's look at the list again 'Luigi's mansion, loz: ww, mario party 4, metroid prime , ssbm and pikmin'

    we got a loz, a mp, and a mario party, and a lot more games(bwii, fire emblem, msc, super paper mario, excite truck) all from nintendo...

    trust me the games are coming out a lot faster, and think of the overall selection of gamecube games now....it's awesome, wii is going to have a better selection, especially since it's getting a lot more third party support

    I think we have the same amount of hardcore releases, but wayyy more casual games than ever before so people are thinking that the hardcore games are less hardcore when in fact they are not. i don't know why people don't see this. and if you think a games too easy--like zelda--why don't you consider the fact that the "omg so challenging " ocarina came out when you were like 9, so maybe your mind wasn't even old enough to think about the puzzles and it seemed hard.

    I don't really see why people expected metroid online. wouldnt you rather they took the time and got it right and made like a metroid hunters game for wii?

    but anyway i'm pretty sure no metroid on the cube had multiplayer and any other console besides DS so why would they start now??

    I just want Rock Band for Wii then I'm set. PC is for my "hardcore" games. Everyone knows PC's are greater than consoles for FPS's.

    Metroid Prime 2 does have multiplayer.

    Buy Galaxy.

    Honestly, I had been feeling the same way, although I don't mind the casual stuff as much as you.

    Then I played Galaxy. It made my proud to support Nintendo. Even little things, like the coin I got for reserving it (complete with a certificate of authenticity) are just a reminder that Nintendo still knows we're here.

    I personally think we're getting more casual or games that have been "casualized" because of the general focus on a specific audience by Nintendo. I don't have a problem with casual games built from the ground up, but I really don't like a game being dumbed down when compared to similar or the same title on other platforms. Wii isn't the only thing I play games on, so it doesn't really bother me. I have a PC for FPS, RTS (when I play them), RPGs, MMORPG... genres that are typically (not always) associated with a more hardcore audience.

    it was their cynnical plan to make us believe that it's coming out in Dec. 3 so that people would buy the Wii instead of other gaming consoles! Now that they revealed it's delayed, for some people, it's too late now...

    Very sneaky Ninty.... Very sneaky...

    Thats the thing.
    Wii is simply doing a better job of reaching out to the casual.
    But it has not left the "hardcore" in the dust so to speak.

    All I have to say is Galaxy.
    Wow, despite the E rating that may turn people away, its easily the best game I have played in a long long time.

    Then we have Mario Kart and Brawl.
    Wii's future is bright, don't worry about it.

    Uhmm... I'm not really sure SPM is a "hardcore" game at all. It was supposed to simple and attractive to casual gamers. There actually arent that many "hardcore" games out. Half the games out there are just mediocre games that devs just send out there to make extra cash. I can count all of the available "hardcore" games on one hand.
