When I see threads about how people are bored with their Wii already or they hoped it was more powerful than it is, or they (or even I) wish it could do this or have that... I remind myself... The important thing was to support Nintendo's direction with an initial purchase IMHO. That showed the gaming industry what people want and when more money is poured into it as a result we'll get closer and closer to immersive virtual-reality type play... the kind people that have been gamers since the beginning have been dreaming about all along. The kind of gaming that we drooled over while watching ST:TNG When I was a kid, the geek pundits and seuth sayers pretty much promised personal jet-packs by now (actually quite a few years ago by now) and throw-away clothes made out of paper, and robots to do all the housework... and that was the typical course of events… big promises broken and dreams dashed, while we all waited for a holodeck-type gaming experience to please come along while we could still enjoy it. Quality physical VR type programming (like Wii Sports) will always be way more fun for me than ANY game I play with my thumbs or by clicking my mouse and millions of Wii owners showed the industry that I’m not alone. Early support was critical and now it’s been done. What any individual bored or disappointed Wii owners do or how they feel is pretty irrelevant at this point. The work is done, the ball is rolling and things are looking up! What else can we feel we're playing, what cool places can we feel we're visiting or experiencing? I wouldn't mind a virtual surf board or a virtual climb up Mount Everest, or to be fully immersed in the roll of rock god (drummer please) on a world stage, would you? THIS is the future of gaming and the Wii started it by proving a point and it only cost us all a couple hundred bucks a piece to help them prove it. Money well spent IMHO, whether I ever played with it again or not, worth every penny!
