    The latest gen games just don't have the wow factor that their Snes/N64 counterparts had.. games on the 64 were fresh and revolutionary. The games that are coming out now are basically the same with a few minor changes.. At the end of the day there's a big difference between revolutionary and evolutionary and while some people like the total familiarity.. if you want a game that plays and feels exactly like the N64 version.. go play the N64 version. Look at Mario Power Tennis/Halo 2.. this is exactly what a sequel should not be.

    After watching Nintedo's E3 conference it's clear their main focus is expanding the market by producing err "games" which appeal to non gamers... well fair enough but lets face it.. the wii was designed solely for this purpose with core gamers nothing but an after thought.

    (And no I don't own or intend to buy a 360/PS3)

    I do have to agree that most of the games coming out are just the same, and they'll only hold our attention for about an hour or two, but there are some games for the core gamers out there.

    You got the Big 3. Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Although Brawl won't utilize the Wii Remote's motion capabilities, it's still a good game.

    Also, games for the Wii Zapper such as Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles and Ghost Recon, and those look hardcore.

    The main point is, it just takes a while for some good games to come out. Once companies can get used to the Wii, then we'll get some good games. Probably by 2008 there will be some really tight games.

    The only reason I'm playing my Wii and not my 360 is because I burned the **** out of my hand and can't properly hold an Xbox controller with gauze wrapped around my hand. Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying the games I'm playing on Wii (Super Paper Mario and Mario Party 8 at the moment), it's just that I would rather play other games.

    But I bought my Wii for four games: Metroid Prime 3, Zelda, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. If those were the only games I ever bought for my Wii, I think I would still consider buying my Wii to be completely worth it (provided those other three games turn out to be as amazing as they are expected to be).

    It's not really revolutionary considering it seems pretty similar to the original on the GC (Haven't played it) and online play is nothing new.

    Mario Strikers is pretty awesome if you can get a few people round but without being able to communicate with who your playing online it's very similar to just playing against the computer.

    Get a decent gaming PC.. its the ultimate platform for gaming.. First person shooters are unmatched on the PC. The precision and accuracy of a mouse is far superior to that of the wii remote or analogue stick. The only genres which the PC falls short on are Beat em ups and platformers.. but if you are only getting one platform to play games on.. it has to be the PC.

    But if you really want a 360 or a wii.. I'd say if your gonna get a wii make sure you do it for the games and not the wii remote which does get old after a week.

    agreed in fact, My comps a Toshiba sattelite! The 'mote does get old, but for me Mario lives forever! It depends on your taste and how much you fear your console breaking down.

    Four reasons why people think the wii is boring.

    1) They haven't had a ps3 or 360 and fail to realize any console gets boring if you play it too much.

    2) They only bought a wii because they thought it looked neat.

    3) They aren't Nintendo fans, and are probably newer to gaming.

    4) They just flat out spend too much time gaming

    I have all three consoles. I have gotten bored of the wii once, the 360 once, and the ps3 once. Now I am interested in the Wii again.

    It's just a cycle that happens. The only gaming platform I have ever been hardcore into for a long period of time was PC gaming, which I am definitely going to be spending time doing when bioshock and crysis come out.

    If you like Nintendo franchises, then get the wii. If not, then don't.

    Too many people bought this console with no interest in Nintendo, they just saw it as the latest trend.

    No offence [to all who think this] but have you even read what you have written - how can a set of controls get boring? Surely isn't it the game you are playing which gets dull and not the control system!

    If you prefer analogue controls fair enough but to degrade the Wii controls because the game isn't as exciting as you wanted just seems weird!

    I didn't say the controls got boring.. but old may have been a bad choice.
    What I meant was buying a wii for the control mechanics is a bad idea because after a bit the wow factor wears off and it feels standard [not boring].
