    I think that same game developers should look at SSBB and realize that not EVERY game needs to use the Wiimote.

    I know it's the main feature of the console and all, but there are some games that would be better off using the classic controller or even the old gamecube controller (which I really think was one of the best designed controllers, ever).

    The new Mortal Kombat game for example, I don't see how they would use the Wiimote for it and still make it enjoyable. I guess most of the examples I could think of would be fighting games. But I'm sure that there are others.

    Dragon Ball Z plays like a charm with the Wiimote..and what are you talking about? SSBB will use the Wiimote too, jeez..and you wanna know how they'll make Mortal Kombat enjoyable? instead of pushing buttons to punch, you are going to be able to actually "punch" with the Wiimote and Nunchuck, how's that for enjoyable? and making uppercuts, long-range attacks like Scorpion's...just watch the videos: http://media.wii.ign.com/media/845/845775/vids_1.html

    Give developers time. Everything will pan out much like it did on the DS. First generation DS software used the stylus in horrible ways. Nearly every developer thought that the touch screen had to be used as much as possible.

    Sooner or later, Wii developers will realize that the Wii controller doesn't need to be the focus of every game.

    Wrong it's perfect for every game in theory it has 50 controls about 10 are buttons and 40 are motions games that use the classic controller suck especially MK or Brawl if they didn't they would be just like the previous ones. I think from the games I've played they use the perfect amount of buttons and motions and the Gamecube layout kinda sucked it's got weird handles and the buttons are oddly shaped and small.

    Oh it sucked? and I bet the Xbox one was perfect? that big old thing which one couldn't even grab, oh and the ps2's was the best I bet huh? because it's the same old boring stupid design as ever..what nerve, you obviously don't know what creativity and confortness is all about

    Good point. I see nothing wrong with using the Wiimote as much as possible, I think it's a great piece of hardware that really expands gameplay possibilities. But I'm a big fan of old school fighting games. The video of MK:A looks sweet, but something inside me just wants to button mash when I'm playing fighting games......It's half the fun!:lol:

    DBZ: BT2 is freaking awesome with the Wiimote and I haven't played any other game since I got it. I can't wait to see how multiplayer is (nothing more fun than stomping your bro.. in any game).

    hey I'm 20 and my bro is 15 and I always used to beat him in every game right? but now he's kinda surpassing me lol, I say it's the games that are becoming easy for next generations and less suitable for us hardcore gamers

    I'm 19 and my bro is 11, and I tell him that games are way easier than they used to be. He found this out trying to play Mario Brothers. ;)

    He is getting better than me in Wii Bowling, which is sort of embarassing. D: I need to practice.

    my brother is two years older than me, but we started gaming at the same time, when we got the N64 for Christmas. I can beat him down in Super Smash Bros Melee and Brawl (He's only Captain Falcon, who sucks) and He couldn't survive a Zelda fight to save his life. He is just liikes Madden, which in my opinion, takes no real skill and is retarted. It is always fun to beat down your brother. Games arn't nessicarily harder than they used to be, Some games are, some games aren't.

    One, I assume you are talking about SSB64 and SSBM, not brawl that is the wii title. Secondly, Captain Falcon does not suck! he is one of the higher tier characters that a lot of tournment players use. While Zelda is a bottom tier character... and if you meant link, still link is a lower tier character as well.

    check this out if you aren't sure what im talking about: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=81928

    Granted, I don't like playing with captain falco because i'm not that good with with him... probably the same case as your brother. If I'm just playing for fun with my girlfriend (ssb is our fav game) i'm usually dr. mario as I find him the most fun. If i'm playing some hardcore ssb players I go with Fox.

    --

    I really hope SSBB is gamecube controller compatable, it's simply the best control scheme. They've already said that SSBB is going to use the wiimote motion capabilities, so while it is possible I doubt they will use the wiimote at all.

    1. ssbb will NOT use wiimote much at all if any. (unless they changed)

    2. fighting games(and most others) are perfect for wiimote.

    All games are required to use the motion sensor to some extent even metal Slug uses it to fling grenades

    The difference between the DS touch screen and the Wii Remote is that the Wii Remote is the main feature and with DS the touch screen is just a way to say their product is awesome

    And Yeah DBZ controls are so cool even though you don't need to I like to pull both Nunchuck and Wiimote back and scream Kamehameha from time to time it's so fun

    thats the most absurd thing i have ever heard. i would make the assumption that ds stands for dual-screen which would in turn make me think that the whole point of the ds is the second screen. to say that it is "just something to make their product awesome" is ridiculous

    Sorry I didn't put that the way I meant it, it was just something to seperate them from other handheld consoles but the Wiimote is the main feature where the touch screen is secondary
