    What genre is Nintendo missing?
    Nintendo has it's Middle Age masterpiece in Zelda
    Its ultimate plat-former in Mario
    The classic Space flying action game Star Fox
    The great Sci-Fi Shooter and fps Metriod
    Arguably the best fighter ever in Smash Bros
    Awesome Party titles like Wario Ware and Mario Party
    The game that created a genre! Mario Kart
    A million casual games which was made by Nintendo
    A work out game? Wii Fit

    But what doesn't Nintendo have? (Specifically the Wii)
    An Online FPS made by Nintendo!!!!!
    Ok, we got MoHH2 but that wasn't made by Nintendo, and you can tell! The game is great, fun and its online is good... But it doesn't have the Nintendo feel, and it doesn't have the great FPS feel either...
    It's obvious that the MAIN genre right now for most systems is an FPS...
    I mean imagine a game like HALO with the wii controls...
    Not a WWII game, thats not Nintendo.... (although Battalion Wars is cool)
    Why not start a new franchise, A sci-fi fps online...
    I want Halo on the wii! (Obviously not Halo, something like it...)
    Heck! Bungie is apart from Microsoft now so they are now a 3rd party... GIVE US HALO! LOL!

    How about some Secret of Mana-esque games?


    FPS's are overrated in my opinion. But I'm in the vast minority on that view.


    A game like Custom Robo would be nice also.


    But what I'd give for a Secret of Mana remake!

    errrrrrrrrm.

    I'm still waiting for a decent racing game. (besides Excite Truck)

    Mario Kart is great but it's not out yet and I'm looking for something realistic.

    and @ trulen Custom Robo Wii FTW!!! The DS version was. . . OK, but a wii version would be nice.

    I'm also still waiting for F-zero wii which would just plain own. wait thats not realistic. . .. you know what screw realism.

    Nintendo will never develop or even publish an actual violent game.

    yeah, custom robo was an awesome game, i can't wait to see a wii version.

    Redsteel II is going to be coming out, and it's going to be online, but i think ur alone on the "Halo 4 Wii" thing.

    after reading through this again, it looks like more speculation than anything, but still, they seem to recognize the importance of having a game out on the wii, and they seem to appreciate the direction nintendo is going. there are other articles where they claim that the wii is "the most valuable console".

    I think the Wii has a good variety of genres already, but one they could focus on more is FPS. Controls work great for those kind of games, I would like to see more.


    That, no matter what the feelings toward Nintendo and its violence policy may be, is simply speculation. Nintendo could surprise us.

    What the Wii needs are some great strategy games. And I don't mean that crap like BWii that is pedaled as a strategy game. It may be a neat game, but that's no strategy game. The Wii controls are absolutely designed perfectly for strategy games.

    Heck, I'll even take a port of the 10 year old Starcraft, as long as it has online.
