    The Wii remote has proven easier and more unified between player and game than most PS3 and 360 fanboys realize.
    Just last night my wife was playing Wii sports, Bowling & Golf mostly, and she, much like myself is a gaming veteran who has played many sport titles over the years, but never liked any of them until now, and when i asked her why she said because she feels like she has more control over the ball in bowling and her golf swing, as if she was actually doing it.
    Coincindentally i was on the phone with my friend in georgia and at the same time my wife was playing my Wii bowling and his sister was playing his Wii bowling, and his sister said she's addicted to it for the same reasons, it just gives you more of an actual feeling of really participating in the actual game and more control over what your doing.
    So now since the Wii has the largest install base, i hope and pray more developers have the same realization about the unique control and large install base and use those facts to support and take advantage of the Wii's control scheme.

    But it gets old fast and then it is just like it was before. It is the normal thing and it is boring. And no, I'm not a PS3 or 360 fanboy, as I have all three consoles.

    i agree, once the gimmik wore off sports and play became a once every 2-3 month thing, and now a not-at-all-might-trade-them-in thing

    Yeah Right

    No you are a PS3 fanboy otherwise you wouldn't be advertising a PS3 chat link in a Wii forum, and by the way it's not the control scheme that gets old, it's the games, therefore if you have the patience to wait for another great Wii title such as Metroid or Mario, even Madden is a newer and better experience especially according to the reviews of Madden 07 on all 3 consoles the Wii version was the best.

    I'm just trying to get the site more members as it is lacking in that area, and it is ran by the same person as this site so its not like I'm advertising my own site and trying to steal members from here. I go to PS3 Wii and 360 Chat forums. And the control scheme does get old along with the games.

    Let him pretend he isn't a ps3 fanboy.

    You mean YOU FEEL the control scheme gets old? Because you definitely don't speak for me.

    Well then let me be the first to say that those of you Wii owners who feel that the games and or control scheme has gotten old then go and sell your Wii stuff on ebay or trade it in at your local game store and buy some PS3 or 360 stuff because you certainly are no longer a Wii fan and therefore don't even deserve to own a Wii let alone participate in this forum.
    This forum is for people who love playing Wii and everything about it, so if your no longer interested or bored with your Wii then get rid of it and just participate in another console forum.

    Thats mature, claim idiotic things with no basis to do so.

    Obviously everyone has different opinions, but there are many people who agree with me. Were you not around when everyone was making threads about hating their Wiis and stuff? More people agreed with them than didn't.

    I'm not going to sell it, because they are very cheap and if a good exclusive game happens to come out I can play it. So, if we aren't Wii fanboys and we actually acknowledge that the console has faults then we don't deserve to own one? There are people that come to this forum that don't even own a Wii anymore, but they still come. What you are saying is that if you aren't a Wii fanboy then you shouldn't come here which is idiotic much like fanboys of any kind. I'm not going to get rid of it, and I do participate in other forums, but that doesn't mean I'm going to leave this one. So deal with the fact that the Wii has many faults and there are some people that aren't fanboys on here.

    you just interupted a good debate, cammy for shame

    but on the MAIN TOPIC of this thread

    a lot of big third party developers are switching over from the ps3 to the wii, because it's more popular, and way cheaper to develop

    oh and paintballer isn't as bad as shiftfallout(sp?) he acts like we're all nintendo fanboys but he's the sony fanboy(just look at his sig if you see him)

    and i don't think the controller scheme get's old, i've never bought a racing game in my lfie, and i seriously can't even imagine playing excite truck with a gamecube controller, that would suck so bad....same with sonic, going to that fast in secret rings, it wouldn't feel right without the wiimote..........

    maybe it's cause all you do is play wii sports and zelda, paintballer but like vagrant and samus101, i am very happy with the wiimote and/or nunchuck

    1. Good for you Macmutt. I definately feel that the controller is something special, and definately adds to games (so long as it's implemented correctly).

    2. Paintballer, owning all three consoles doesn't mean you're free from bias. What you speak of is your own preference, and you cannot speak for anyone else (unless otherwise stated).

    3. Wiicammy, don't be so elitist on here. "noob" culture is something that only a certain aspect of gamers adhere to. As for calling him a "noob", I think you should be more courteous. If you're going to disagree, fine. However, there is no need for what you said.

    All in all, I feel that developers are starting to use the wiimote and other options more and more. The once feared "wiimote only" concept is breaking down, as more and more games give you the option of how to control. Likewise, I feel that the wiimote is starting to be better configured. Resident Evil 4 played like a dream on the Wii, and with the reports of a brilliant control set-up for Metroid Prime 3, I feel that the wiimote is finally getting the spotlight it deserves.

    As for the "gimmick" wiimote thing, I've been playing the Wii a lot lately, and have been really enjoying it. I find it very freeing, being able to control things with motion and movement, allowing a refined experience (again, when done right). Too bad for those of you that have been left with disappointment for the Wii, but I emplore you to give it another go with the next wave of games that are coming out. They all look to play beter in general than the exerimental first wave has been.

    My basis for calling you a fanboy is the posts I use to read from you in the PS3 section of the wiichat forums back in the day.

    And the only reason why the children were whining about their wii's is because they had some misconception that the ps3 or 360 is a lot funner.

    I have a ps3 and 360 and I have played gears of war more than almost any other game, and I still don't find either of them to be funner than the wii.

    How do you know what I play? Stalker? The reason I only play Zelda and Wii Sports is because they are the only good games that aren't extremely short. I rent games for it, but I haven't found any that would be worth of buying unless you have people over to play multiplayer all the time. The only other game that would be worth of buying is Paper Mario, but it is pretty short too and I could probably finish it by renting it again. I can tell you I'm definetly not a fanboy of any type. I am fairly neutral. On topic, it seems the developers believe that the Wii is just a gimmick too so they are producing shitty quality games very quickly to make some quick money.

    Edit: From what I wrote in the PS3 section? I was arguing against the PS3 for quite a while in there and I still do to an extent.

    Do you even pay attention to the gaming world...? Like how all these huge name developers are excited to work with the wii and how they are putting out these huge lists of games they want to develope.

    Just because you have an annoying font color doesn't mean you have to act dumb :(

    Being a Final Fantasy fanboy is almost as bad as being a ps3 fanboy.

    You can participate in whatever forum you want, but i just don't think it's appropriate that you complain or bash certain imperfections about the Wii.
    Everyone knows it's not a flawless console, but you should realize that there are alot of new members here that are also new Wii owners and by saying that this gets old and that gets old, your taking them off their new high of their recent Wii purchase and you might even make them second guess their purchase and thats not what we want.
    All of us want the Nintendo and Wii community to grow, don't forget Nintendo is still the underdog, no matter how far ahead they are in sales right now.
    Nintendo is still the only company that derives it's total income from video game hardware and software, while Microsoft & Sony still have their other products to build up their revenue. So the bottom line is we still need as much support and Wii fans as we can get.

    That is very stupid. It is good to make them think about their purchase so they don't regret it. I don't really give a **** about the company, I care about the console and the games it has. I don't care if the Wii community grows or not, that is Nintendo's problem not ours. About "taking them off their new high" I don't really care about them anyway.
