    I havent played all the games that have came out, but i have read reviews for a bunch of them from Ign, ebgames etc.... i think Nintendo is going to have to count on there own games to really sell. SSBB, Mario strikers, SUper Mario Paper, Mario Party 8, SMG and more games they r making... SOme of the other companies arent there yet with the controlls. The only company i really see doing well is EA. They have done well with will the controls( but from what i am hearing not tiger Woods). So for the games that sell big, i think that it will be up to Nintendo. Nintendo should start releasing more info on these games!( SSBB, SMG, Strikers).. But i think nintendo will come through with those games and hope other companies do better with the controls

    This is how it is with all systems 3rd parties are never smash hits except a few rare cases 2nd parties are pretty good too

    The controls for Tiger Woods are fine. Takes some getting used to, but it definitely has a very realistic feel.

    Just because a game is violent doesn't mean it's good.

    look at all the great games that are coming out!

    Super Mario Galaxy
    Super Paper Mario
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    Animal Crossing Wii
    Metroid Prime 3
    Mario Kart Wii


    And yeah the 3rd parties are not doing the best job with the Wiimote, but they are doing ok.

    Well, that is a personal view.

    I see those games on that list and immediately the word 'kiddy' spring to mind.
    ( except for MP 3 ).

    The Wii must depend on more than just Mario, more than just Nintendo otherwise it'll just become yet another flop, lacking third party games like the GC. An opportunity missed.

    Grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory

    I don't think so. Third party has nearly trippled. With biggies comming to the wii like guitar hero, metel solid gears(snakes in brawl already..) Final fantasy, and tons other games. Nintendo has no problom with 3 party support. I myself think nintendo can easily substain on their own proven in the 6 and 5 generation console war with gamecube and the N64. Well. the more the merrier! :thumbsup:

    automatically from your statement i can tell your not a real nintendo fan. If you have nothing to do other than shoot people brains out don't play the wii and don't take part in the wii forum honestly. Because if you don't consider the first party games as real games, there is no need to be here. I would advise you not to fool around with nintendo when you look you sign up your self to stay in the hospital for a few weeks....

    your saying they should depend on their games and the next minute your saying they aren't good enough. What do you want from nintendo. sounds like your contradicting yourself. Kiddie has nothing to do with the game being a great game or good game, so get over it. You can't really judge nintendo and their games until online play has come in to full effect. i just hate the word kidde. nintendo been making games for years and all of a sudden everything is kiddie that come out you gamers mouth. It's quite annoying.

    While, yes, some of the major games are first party (and why not, Nintendo makes top quality games) there is a TON of 3rd party support as we have discussed. EA is really bringing some great games to Wii for once, which I think really suprised us because I was thinking Ubisoft would really be the top developer for Wii (with the exception of Red Steel, Ubisoft has brough some SERIOUSLY crappy games).

    But I'm REALLY looking forward to Sadness which is 3rd party. RE:UC will be good, I think. [I mean, it uses the RE4 engine]

    Yeah I believe things are looking up for Ninty this time around. A good balance of mature and everyone playable games is all I can ask for:cornut:

    Err, where did that come from?

    What I wrote is my personal view, and I don't expect other people to have to conform to it - of course - that would be highly arrogant.

    I consider Mario etc to be kiddie games. .. and Nintendo should not expect the Wii to sell because of core Nintendo games. Personally, I don't like those particular games - but others do - and of course, I respect that - I hope people have fun when those games come out... however, Mario games are not for me.

    You can advise me all you want, I'm ignoring it! I like the Wii, and I really want it to succeed - but on the basis of 3rd party software support. For Wii to succeed and compete in the long term, it will have to provide a broad range of games, from "Kiddie" games, to more serious games, and the casual gamers. Its up to the 3rd party to provide that range because Nintendo won't, in full. 3rd party will make or break the Wii, remember GC?

    When did I shoot other people down?

    With new gamers coming to the Wii - and they see the games list - they will think "Kiddie". Its a concern of 3rd party developers, like I've said before. Like it or not, Nintendo have an image of being Kiddie - its well documented, and Nintendo want to remove that too.

    I bought the Wii because its innovative with the controllers. I want it to do well, but I'm frustrated by the current games - PS2 ports, or just very poor games to begin with. Its early days though. I don't have to like Nintendo games to enjoy the Wii.

    it's good that you bought it for the controls and thing but my main thing is i'm sick of the word kiddie. It's like the new word of the century. Why i'm am tired of hiring it is because this was never an issue before. But my main thing was how could you buy a wii and not be into the 1st titles. But i don't force people to do nothing either. Play what you want to. i'm just a versatile gamer, i can play anytype of game once its interesting, whether its kiddie or not. Some of you people make kiddie sound like amateur porn. I just feel like with games you can't be that picky. See why i don't like the kiddie word is because nintendo has mature games so thats why i hate to keep hearing it. No matter how much mature and adult games nintendo come out with. It will stay witht he name kidde, all because people have poison other people minds with it, so before they can play it they have already judge the game. How could you tell if a game is kiddie or not by its name. But i respect your view but you can't expect nintendo to count on its 1st party titles and then you elimating some of the 1st party titles

    i think thats what it should be that Nintendo make their own games and have a few 3rd party games as well, i think it makes it better you dont see sony making their own games do you!

    For whatever reason "Kiddie" is an issue now and 3rd party game companies are concerned by this image too. I don't want Wii turn into another GC, and thats a real possibility.

    You can tell the game is 'kiddie' by its history, and I'm going to use Mario once again as an example. However, Zelda has changed itself.

    How could I buy a Wii and not be in to the 1st titles? Easily. I'm not at all interested in Mario... its done to death.

    I'm more interested in the 3rd party games. Saying that, I'm very impressed by Zelda and I'd buy the next one in a shot.

    Us older, meaning 11-12 year olds who just got the idea of sneaking in Rated R movies. Older GAMERS don't care about blood and gore they care about gameplay. Nintendo always had blood and gore, you just don't buy a gamecube want blood and gore and buy mario kart you buy resident evil.
