    2008 is already looking like a better year for the Wii than 07.
    Hopefully we do see some good "surprises" along with what we already know about.

    Even with games as "great" as Super Mario Galaxy, it's obvious that Nintendo is gearing even those serious titles towards new gamers. 08' is definitely looking better, however, and I can't wait.

    Nice article.

    I don't understand this fear that Nintendo will ruin the gaming industry by apealing to "nongamers" and "casuals." I though the aim of any company that sells some sort of product or service, was to draw in new costomers?

    Why wasn't this outcry so loud when the psone came out? Didnt both the psone and pstwo make videogames more mainstrean? Did both not actualy EXPAND the gaming audance? I'm confused. What is the wii doing that these others didn't do?

    And this thing about "hardcore" sticking to Nintendo through the game cube years? Yeah right. Selling 20 million consoles in 6 years is something huh? Nintendo got the snot beat outta it for two consecutive generations, it being left miles behind it's compitition as so called "Hardcore" Players abandoned it for the psone and the pstwo. I don't understand this resentment like Nintendo betrayed "us." I mean, who left who?

    Nintendo did what it had to to to survive. It came down to think of something esle or toss the towel.

    The article meantions the halfassed ports and such; like who's fault is that? It seems that they are blaming Nintendo for what third parties do.

    And my last question is :Why are people ascribing so much power to Nintendo to the point that it and the wii could actualy RUIN gaming as we know it?

    hmm this article is full of opinions and no facts, which could be good, but i don't share the opinions and it seems too biased . I had more fun with mario strikers charged than i did with mp3 or twilight princess (although i still enjoyed them both a lot!)

    and why didn't he count twilight princess as a full out wii game, just because it's appeared on two consoles, dosn't mean it's not a wii game.

    I think this person dosn't own a wii/many games, i have 20ish and i could honestly say 2007 was a great year, especially since wii just came out late 2006, 2008 looks even better

    Oh no! 2007 only got two AAA titles in it's first year of existance!!! Put a one here. Put a one here.

    I'd say that's a pretty good start!

    I have to agree with Brawny. 2007 was an excellent year for games, in my opinion, so I am definitely looking forward to 2008.
    Anyway, thanks for the info.

    No More heroes (Pre Ordered)
    MOH Heroes 2 (Pre Ordered)
    Battalion Wars 2 (Pre Ordered)

    Also Mushroom Men looks kinda cool... You'll have to google it cos I cant' be bothered to get the link for it. (LOL)

    RED Steel 2... Fingers crossed Ubisoft get it right this time, Crisis: Day of Disaster, just some games which could be good!

    Honestly, those who complain of a lack of games either have too much time or money on their hands, or are not looking hard enough. Some of the games I can list off the top of my head not mentioned in the article:

    • Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
    • Medal of Honor: Heroes 2
    • Resident Evil 4
    • Zack & Wiki Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure
    • SSX Blur
    • Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party
    • Excite Truck
    • Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
    • Nights: Journey of Dreams
    • Battalion Wars 2
    And many more. Granted, some of these are ports. But they are not rushed, half-assed, motion control boob-jobs.
