    Ok,

    My feeling of what killed the Gamecube is that it had no game selection what so ever. Games you wouldn't give 2 cents to have. I feel like the Wii is heading toward the same direction the Gamecube did. I looked at some game titles and found..."Barnyard, Avatar, Chicken Little, Cars and Spongebob?" these titles don't really say come and buy me for 50 bucks! Now I believe the Wii has hardcore potential, I have one and I love it, well I love Zelda and Excite Truck, Red steele and COD 3 disapoint me greatly. Also I take into account that it's early and not alot of games are out yet. But I said the same thing about the Gamecube as well...I love Nintendo and I want the Wii to dominate, but with games like "Cars and Barnyard" I feel like it will be another Gamecube blunder. A console is as only good as the games it has and I'm just not seeing anything....

    We just found out they are making DDR for the Wii. That will be awesome.

    What you're saying would make perfect sense except that the major flaw in your post. And that is that ALL those games you mentioned are marketed towards children and not for adult gamers. Hence the parents of these children will buy these games for them and everybody wins. If you don't like those games don't buy them. Nintendo isn't forcing or begging you to buy "kiddie" games. There are plenty of great games for this system. Otherwise millions of them wouldn't have been sold by now and PS3 would be dominating the market right now. So I think you're not looking at the situation clearly.

    The Gamecube suffered from online and third party support. Online problem should obviously be fixed and it seems that the third party developers are very interested in the wii (EA announced like 15 games or something like that. Ubisoft too with Rayman and Red Steel at launch.)

    Are you aware that movie titles come on al platforms? I have seen all these games on PS2 and XBOX, meaning these systems must be bad too? Or maybe, I need a new pair of shoes

    For those that consider it a cheap gimmick, the way the Wiimote is controlled has caused a lot of people to take the bait, good thing is, so have developers.

    I have more confidence in this than I've had for any other console.

    I don't get why people hate on Red Steel. It's a good game, imo. It feels good to shoot people! XD

    yer there are a few "kiddy games" but that the same on all platforms, Xbox 360,ps3,ps2 ect ect, Trust me many adult games will be coming to the wii in the next couple of months. Nintendo have even said that they trying t get rid of there kiddy image!!

    In my opinion, the number of games that were available at Wii launch is a very good indicator that the Wii has a long road of good gaming ahead. Think about other consoles when they were released....how many titles did they have available in the first month? How many titles does PS3 have, for example? Developers are going to go nuts for the new interface...we just need to have patience.

    Konami has already addressed that, the game will use the 'gamecube' port to connect a mat and the controls will be held in the hands. You'll not only have to move your feet correctly but hands/arms also.

    Wii is for everyone, everyone includes kids.

    Children aint going to play games like Red Steel are they?

    So Ninty has to bring out some games that suit ALL ages because the wii is for people of ALL ages :)
