    i got the wii last christmas, along with the games zelda and nfs carbon, i rapidly became bored, and stopped playing, i havent touched my wii untill recently, but even now, i find the reson i stoped playing last time, due to lack of games, is still here and agin i feel like stopping.
    they havent bought out any "adult" game, for example something like gta, instead we are "blessed" with paper mario :sick:
    the game i really wanted to play the most is EA skate, unluckly it isnt out on wii, :wtf: not that it supprises me.
    we have been let down by nintendo, they are too lazy. what ever happend to "wii is going to be the leading console" i remember someone quoting.
    am i the only person who hasnt touched there wii for along time, due to lack of game and the games that are out, being somewhat boring after a couple of hours.

    thanks.

    Well, no your not the only one.
    People have vented their frustration with their Wii's for some time now, saying similar things to you.

    But there are good games out there, and good games coming.

    Games to check out now:
    Metroid Prime 3 and Super Mario Galaxy.

    Games coming:
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl, No More Heroes, Wii Fit and Mario Kart.

    Its all about finding what you like, and ultimately when it comes down to it, if you still find yourself bored, it may just be that the Wii is not the console for you, in which case, you can either sell it, or keep it.

    I never get bored with my Wii, I have played some great games on it.
    And if I am waiting for a Wii game to come out or become available I play a Gamecube game or play around with the various channels on there.

    So before you make a choice, and say your really "bored".
    Make sure you make good use of the Wii's potential and features it has.

    I started to get bored with my Wii about 6 months ago, but then a plethora of great games came out and I picke up my Wii again and can't put it down. I also own a 360 and a PS3 so I really never get bored with any system anymore. Each console has thier own great games, but I think Wii has the most intuitive. There are almost 200 VC games, maybe you should try some of those.

    First, seeing as this was like your 2nd post or something, you're obviously here to ***** and complain about the Wii. If you don't like it, take it back.....go get a 360.

    Nintendo hasn't let anyone down.....if they don't like the game selection, don't buy it or play it. Bitching won't help.

    What idiot told you to buy the Wii for "adult" games anyway? Where did you hear that? You have a better chance of getting killed with a falling coconut in Alaska than you do having GTA come to Wii, besides, have you even tried Godfather, or Scarface? They're good in my opinion. Have you played Galaxy? Doesn't sound like it.

    And for the record......the Wii IS the leading console....in sales. I don't see massive demand for the 360 or PS3 as I do the Wii...hmmm, wonder what that means?

    I haven't got a Wii, but many games look really boring nowadays because Nintendo want everybody involved into gaming, which makes more games easier and user friendly. Thus making the hardcore fans more bored of getting decent games. Bored.

    I wonder if you even beat Zelda or played/ beat super paper mario?

    Yeah Metroid Prime kicked ass.
    Zelda rocked.
    Super Paper mario was fun
    Super Mario Galaxy is FUN~
    Zack & Wiki will challenge your mind.
    Mario Party 8 rocks.
    Resident Evil 4 is a great addition.

    i do wish there were more games out but what can ya do. Nintendo is not lazy. They are basically the only ones making good games for the wii, if anyone is lazy its the 3rd parties porting all the crap games.

    And you're helping by...suggesting he take back a year-old system? GG.

    You seem full of loathing and hate, and are looking for just as equal an opportunity to take out something here, or on persons who in your eyes are "bitching".

    That being said: I've only had my Wii about a week, but we can't get enough of it. I usually have people over nightly, and with the 360, or the PC's around here, the entertainment is limited. The wii is just soooo good for co-op with friends. We were even having a blast goofing off on Umbrella Chronicles, and Wii Play, later someone wanted to be Luigi on SM-Galaxy.

    Finally kicked everyone out around 12:30, hehe.

    So to the OP's question, a suggestion: I'll presume you're a teen, or living with the 'rents? Find a way to get a 360, get your "adult" games- GTA 4 is out in a few months, Mass Effect was fun, Assassins Creed..etc..etc.

    Lack of games?

    I bet you got about ten hours into zelda and stopped, try to go through a lengthy game it is enjoyable and an amazing experience. Wii has some of the highest rated games of all time, Galaxy and metroid the leading examples.
    The wii has over 405 titles, that is in a small amount of time and just developers getting to grips with the hardware. More games are to come and better but as of now the only lack is the lack of you trying to find a game.

    You may be surprised but Nintendo were in talks with Take Two about GTA and sadly the wii was rejected due to the route GTA is taking, the GTA future games need raw processor power. You may also be surprised to find that many people purchased and enjoyed paper mario.

    Maybe you could purchase the latest Tony Hawk skating game which is available on wii.

    Hmm, wrong *LOL*

    Thanks for assuming so much from not knowing me and reading 1 post I've made.....good job yourself :)

    You obviously haven't been around long enough to hear all of the "bitching", last time I checked it's perfectly ok to voice opinions.....if he can, I can, so get off the high horse kid.

    Regarding taking back the year-old system, apparently you read way too much into that, obviously they're not going to take it back, I'm in general suggesting he jump off the Nintendo bandwagon.

    Wow, I guess you make #3, you're pretty aggressive yourself.

    If you find yourself bored or tired of the current content of Wii games, then I would say the wii is not for you.

    I am definetely a hard core gamer, stating way back from the Atari of old. And I find myself able to stay completely happy with the current game selection and the future titles to come. No I don't have any other consoles, but I do have a computer which I play some random MMOs or other games from time to time (Galactic Civ, Civ 4 and EQ2 - had to quit WoW)..maybe only 10 hours a week, most playing is on the Wii.

    Current games that I have enjoyed or will be enjoying (when I finally obtain them..but have played friends copies):

    Metroid 3, Fire Emblem, Zack and Wiki, Medal of Honor, RE4, RE: Umbrella Chron, Ghost Squad, Galaxies, Trauma Center, Guitar Hero III, Paper Mario...I could go on.

    New games coming: Brawl, No More Hereos (probbably your style, has a good GTA feel), Mario Kart..

    If you feel that you just can't get into these games, then maybe try another console or go to a PC.

    Best of luck to you.

    Sensesfail, I think that is the most intelligent response I have ever read in a thread regarding this subject. Don't sit there and whine about it, if you don't like it do something else, its really not that big of deal.

    Personally I love my Wii and play it a ton, but then I have all the great games for it and they are all games I have been playing forever so for me it is great. What works for some doesn't always work for others, just how it is.

    Saying that is a mere opinion. A person enjoying their PS3 could easily say that it's the leading console because it is (for them).

    If you were to say that it is the leading consoles in sales, then you would be correct.

    Just pointing out. :)

    If your Wii is the only thing you "Game" on then anyone can get bored quick with only a handful of games,

    What I do is alternate between my PC and my Wii so I don't get sick of any of my games I don't want to wear out.


    alot of good PC games are free and I find new ones everyday...

    Try DOSbox it's a free legal DOS emulator and DOS games are freeware and sharware... :smilewinkgrin:

    If your a bit narrow minded and you want some shooters, GTA and skate, etc. sell your Wii.

    If you are not interested in a brand new way to play games and not interested in the top games like Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, etc. then sell it, don't complain.

    I did not mean that in an insulting way, the Wii is good or bad depending on what games you like and if you like the new controller.

    there are weeks i dont touch my wii
    but i wouldnt say i was bored with it
    360 or ps3 have more game developers cranking out fps but thats about it
    gta 4 wont come out for the wii but eventually these publishers realize that that theres a demand for it

    not only did wii surpass the 360 in half the time but if they could produce them faster who knows how many wii they could sell

    plus nintendo has a plan to keep implementing new features
    remember they just starting coming out with online games

    rumors about headset

    nintendo is coming out with usual games with great upgrades

    as soon as publishers get used to the wiis controls there will be a lot more games

    wii has some good rails especially with the implementation of the zapper

    fps will take some time but im sure there will be some good ones

    driving games do need some work too

    party games (better and more selection then other systems)

    adventure games (nintendo made most of the good adventure tittles zelda glaxy and metroid but wii has em)

    sports games (wiisports isnt for sports fans but ea has made many of there games for wii but wheres fight night?)
    i hear decent things about fifa and madden personally i like mario strikers
    rockstars table tennis

    free roam
    scareface godfather
    bully is supposed 2 b released
    wouldnt it b cool to have a gta 3 ported to the wii
    pretty new genre of games i want some more wii games

    fighting games
    ssbb is coming out and i seen a few anime fighting games but not my genre to know whats good

    if ur bored of ur wii u must b getting the wrong games or dont like the games wii has to offer yet
