    It's sad I got my wii on the day it came out.. played it for about a month.. and really havent touched it since.. I have ALOT of games for it including recent ones that have come out. But it seems I play them for an hour and go right back to 360 or Ps3 :mad2: I'm really hoping "Brawl" will change all of this. I also think a BIG reason I don't use my wii as much is NO CHAT! I love being able to chat to my budz while gaming.. dunno anyone else have a wii collecting dust?

    Dude, I'm totally there man.

    I dunno, I'll just look over my library of games and none of my games are appealing. Zelda: stuck again (pathetic, I know), Red Steel: blah.. MySims: haven't been able to get into it, Resident Evil, the Umbrella Chronicles: Stuck, Marvel Ultimate Alliance: why did I even BUY this game? Etc. etc.

    I dunno. Still waiting for another killer app besdies Zelda. Brawl? Yes.

    Metroid Prime 3 - Completed it don't play

    Resi Evil 4 - Completed it dont play

    Mysims - Don't play can't stand it

    Red Steel - This game is shite

    Zack and Wiki - Completed it

    I have the exactly opposite prob! I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FREE TIME TO SPARE TO MY WII!! I would play the games i own for months, not hours. + i want a lot of more more games that already are out to stores (not to mention the forthcoming ones!!) I've spent so much money for my Wii, i would buy 4 PS3s!!! And i'm REALLY REALLY happy about it!!!

    Yeah I've got a bunch of games I've only played a few mins to check them out, but haven't focused on yet. Such as: Resident Evil, Cars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, Sonic, etc. I'm currently playing Tomb Raider Anniversary, which is an under-appreciated game in my opinion. Then there are a half-dozen games I want that I don't have yet: Excite Truck, Super Mario Galaxy, Guitar Hero...

    I don't have enough free time to play my Wii. But then again, I have a job and an apartment to take care of.

    Well games like StarFox Wii and Donkey Kong Wii are rumored that they are in development or will soon be in development. You have Mario Kart Wii, Pikmin 3, and Animal Crossing Wii coming this year. Along with Disaster Day Of Crisis, Alone In The Dark and a possible Red Steel 2 coming out this year. Surely something there garners your interest.

    Mine was collecting dust for a while, but my 360 broke, then it broke again and im playing Super Smash Bros. Melee and im picking up Brawl on Sunday. I don't know how long Brawl will last me, but I know it won't last me as long as it will other people. I'll probably play it for a while then hop back on 360 when its back. SSBB should be my go-to game when my 360 breaks alone with Mario Kart when I get it.

    I think the problem that you have is a simple one, which many people suffer from:

    You're obssessed with shooting people and blowing $#!t up. People who are die-hard 360 or PS3 fans pretty much only care about the "hardcore" games, which are inevitably a bunch of cloned squad-based shooters, first-person shooters, blah blah blah.... yeah they're fun, but you've got to be able to open your mind a little bit and realize that OTHER TYPES of games can be really fun as well...

    So many Wii games have been awesome so far, yet you can only play them for an hour before you start getting that itch to blow $#!t up again?? Come on, man... if your mind is that narrow then there's no hope for you.

    Zelda:TP, Metroid Prime 3, Super Mario Galaxy, No More Heroes, Guitar Hero III, Smash Bros Brawl... all of these are excellent games that provide a unique, and fun gaming style that isn't "hardcore", but is more varied and dynamic than most 360-style games...

    Trust me, I have a 360 as well, and have fun with games like Call of Duty 4. It's not bad, but it is FAR simpler and less interesting than say, Super Mario Galaxy, because you're pretty much doing the EXACT SAME THING over and over until you beat it. For someone like me, the excitement of blowing people away just doesn't make up for the lack of originality and gameplay.

    The Wii really is worth playing, the games are very fun, and provide an experience you can't get anywhere else. If you play for more than an hour, you might begin to realize that!

    Interesting theory, but all wrong. That would mean 360 only has blow em shooters.
    I can't blow anything up on Oblivion
    Portal btw is a very nice puzzle game which they will be making Portal 2
    Mass Effect is heavely revolved around story telling and RPG
    Dead rising is all about killing zombies and surviving
    Madden 08 doesn't even have weapons in it, unless stiff arm is a weapon
    Ever play Lost Odyssey? or Blue Dragon? How about Overloard, Virtua Fighter 5, Dead or Alive 4, or Skate?

    Yes, yes... 360 is only shooters, silly me...

    Btw I found Super Mario Galaxy to be repetitive and extremely easy. I still had fun with SMG mind you, but I didn't find it as great as everyone else. I think Zelda and Metroid Prime 3 > SMG IMO. Also SSBB will > SMG.

    Gotta admit, 360 is just much more fun! It' like having the old Super Nintendo back these days with amazing graphics and a library of games that is next to endless. There are many more types of games than killing/blow em' up/foul language pieces of trash (I refuse to play most of these types of games personally). Had to recently unplug my Wii and have seriously been thinking of selling it. However it makes much more sense to keep it around, seeing as it has almost all of the best classics available for download (Nintendo has always had the best games up until now, and maybe, just maybe they will atleast stick with the game plan for the Zelda and Metroid series). Mario Galaxy in my opinion was a close second to the worst Mario game yet: it was repetitive, much to heavy on the young children's tv show look and appeal; and it was very simple (except for a few places that brought back a slight feel of Mario 64). Nintendo has just changed as far as playing games has been for people who have been gaming for twenty or so years, and Microsoft just hits the nail on the head with just about every facet (dare I say more?)!

    Win! w

    But if you're not touching your Wii much don't worry about it w it just doesn't have games that you like? Like two of the game you're stuck at, do you try to get past or is it just too frustrating?

    You don't have to try and force yourself to play your Wii, some people is addicted to it, some isn't. There isn't a rule that says "omg I bought Wii gotta play 24/7/365!!" If 360/ps3 games appeals to you more play it :x I do hope some of the game that comes out can interest you a little : )

    As for me I just bought my Wii for less than a month so I haven't gotten bored of it yet. Games will last longer for me since I can't spend a lot of time per day playing it, and I like to complete games @ 100% (side quest, etc.)

    Get some better games. If you don't have Galaxy, shame on you. Also, Brawl comes out tomorrow night.
