    he probably should've picked MP3:C or MoH:H2 instead. i'm not saying it would change his mind, but it does seem like he picked the wrong game to play according to his stated preferences.

    He does have some what of a point there...the Wii isnt for everyone...but like Smyth said he should have tried MOH: H2...a lot of people my age (25) are quickly putting down there wiimotes and pickin up either the 360 or ps3.

    i do agree. i enjoy playing Wii, but i don't think it's the best choice for the 18+ age group as a primary console, as a secondary console it's awesome to have though.

    i just don't get him though, he said in his essay, he doesn't like anime games, etc, and that he does like Call of Duty, so why the hell would he go for no more heroes? i know it isn't an anime game but it does have references/inspiration. And Medal of Honor: H2 is a FPS, has online play, takes place in WWII, all of which he says he plays. Again had he played MoH:H2 i'm not sure he would've fallen in love with Wii anyway, but it would've given it a fighting chance. That would be like me saying, i like war games, the bloodier the better, and FPS, and i hate cartoon games, so i'm going to try out PS3 and the game i tried is Barbie's Dream Makeover 4, and after playing i think PS3 sucks. To properly decide if you like anything you have to give it a chance.

    another long-winded post courtesey of,

    Still got Barbie on your mind, huh?

    I do find it interesting that a reviewer whose gap in gaming is the exact span of Nintendo's glory days didn't care for the console. I thought I was older too but I remember plenty of twitch gaming (pinball, Asteroids, Galaga, Pac-Man) and anime (Robotech, Voltron) growing up.

    Right now its not the best for "adult" gamers, but I think it can/will be just as hardcore as the ps3 and 360. You don't need halo or GoW to be hardcore either... someone needs to use their resources properly and make something. NMH is a better attempt, but much more can be done.

    The retarded developers just can't get past the novelty of making a quick buck.

    Interesting article.

    As a 50 year old geezer gamer, I can understand a 30 something gamer not liking the Wii.

    But us old gamers do like the Wii alot. We like having to get off the couch and MOVE. We love playing Wii sports and other party games with friends and family.

    I'm tired of realistic war simulators. I get enough realism in life. I love games like Super Mario Galaxy which puts you in a crazy world and has you do crazy things.

    Nintendo was brilliant creating a game console that wives support us guys getting. Nintendo makes games I can play with my young kids.

    And let's not forget the Resident Evil series.... :yesnod:

    The guy who wrote the article will be sorry if he misses out on Fatal Frame when it arrives.

    haha i didn't even think about that. a bit Freudian... well not as much since that would be more applicable if this was about my mother :lol: thanks for pointing that out though.

    good point though, he did seem to miss out on a little thing known as the greatest console war of all time...

    plus to call SMG "just another 3d platformer"...:wtf: i think it deserves a bit more credit than that.
