    Had my Wii now since Launch, I have Marvel Heroes, Zelda, Red Steel, 4X4 Truck Racing, Sports.

    Ive started to get real bored of it and have found that up and coming releases and mostly release that are out now (bar zelda) are all kiddy, like the age group of 10-14 should be playing.

    Just wanna know if any one else feels like this, dont get me wrong, I understand consoles on launch are poor for games etc, but the Wii is just so wrong, they is no good games coming out for ages, hence my views to sell up.

    Far cry is out in Jan here in the UK, splinter cell graphics and gameplay are just poor and not worth the hassle.

    Any one else feel the wii is for children more than adults (based on the variety of games available)

    For me, gameplay/fun is primary and graphics are secondary.

    Sure, many Wii games are geared towards "everyone" and that might seem kiddy (like monkey ball, elebits, rayman, barnyard...etc) but there are are good percentage of older games out of the array of games currently out. You can't dismiss them as kiddie just because the graphics look less sophisticated. I'm sure more older games will come out...you just have to remember that they just launched and want a variety, such as true kiddie games like barnyard and ant bully, games for all like excite, sports, etc, and older games like Far Cry and COD.

    Just be patient, some games may feel kiddie, but Wii is fun as **** and that's the main factor.

    I don't think its as abd as Gamecube was for kiddy games. And gamecube wan't that bad. Look at the reviews, theres tons of T or M games out or coming out. If you really don't like games for all ages, why did you buy Marvel and 4x4? You should have bought Madden and CoD.

    Im not into the madden series, and thats my fault not the wii's :)

    4x4 was given to me, and marvel I didnt think it would be kiddie. I love the wii, but just found ive got bored of it. Think I will give COD a go tho before I make my decision.

    Im by no means slating the wii cos its one of the best consoles, I just think its lacking more than other consoles did in the "release" field.

    If I got rid now, Id defo defo defo get one back once more games are around.

    I am not blaming the wii....if you read my last posts. I havnt created this thread to slate the wii I stated that at the beginning

    It is just my personal view, As I have played other games round my friends and was not keen on them, hence why I didnt buy them.

    I am not blaming any one for my lack of amusment of the wii, its just down to personal preference. and not majority preference.

    What will you play on the Wii?

    I got a Wii for the fun-factor/innovative control system.

    Im curious: Are you going to give Wii-Music(the conducting game) or Wii-Drum-Kit a go?

    Try COD:3. I found it easy, but it was enjoyable. And you get so used to the Wii-Nunchuk combo that its a bit frightening for observers. Lobbing grenades around and hiding behind cover was never so much fun!

    Cept maybe for Super Bomberman

I hope they gome up with some NEW, ANGRY, FPS, games. I really think red steel looks cool and they should do a matrix game abit like that, but with kong-fu aswell!

    Um...

    Im not sure if you've noticed, but innovative games basically no longer exist.

    Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142, Dawn of War and Expansions, Sports games, etc. Expansions and sequels make up a majority of modern games because, just like movies: They make money. They make alot of money

    If you go to a game store and have a choice between a sequel of a game you enjoyed or a totally weird looking new game then you are most likely going to buy the sequel.

    I tend to find that people always assume that brightly coloured and lacking blood automatically makes a game kiddie. And those people seem to be the ones that can't have fun in a game unless you can perform some sort of headshot or fatality move. My father happens to be one of these people and I find it to be a shame.

    So far, I think the game line up for the Wii is quite 'Cute'. Not kiddie. Every game I've played can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Ok, there's not much blood in Raving Rabbids (or even Trauma Centre) and you can't headshot someone in Wii Sports but still, they're still fun even if you are over the age of 18, or below it as the case may be for some.

    Soon, I have no doubt, there will be games to rival GTA and Gears of War for the gore and the much loved 'something for mothers to complain' about factor (And I can't wait for the 'GTA on the Wii taught my stupid child how to twist a knife in someones gut with it's motion sensing technology, it should be banned, banned I say'). And then all those who can only have fun by performing something that is illegal in real life on a computer game will be happy, because 90% of so called adult games are just about that.

    If we're really lucky, we'll have what I personally would consider to be a true adult game sometime soon too. Something with a mature story and indepth gameplay that doesn't rely on realistic blood splatters or mammary gland physics to make it adults only. With the pointer possibilities classic point and click adventure could be easily made. Imagine it, a Monkey Island console game that isn't complete and utter rubbish. Dialogue that goes over kiddies heads, humour that borders on too dark, insult swordfighting.... the true ingredients of mature gaming.

    Missed oppurtunities?

    Urrr.

    Myst?
    Gabriel Knight?
    Nythel?(Not that you would ever be able to play it now)

    I know these are all old now(ESPECIALLY Nythel) but there's no way someone younger than 16 or 20 could complete these games without cheating. And they had very indepth gaming. For example: In Nythel you are an occult scholar. You visit a professor friend of yours to return one of his books which you were eagerly reading about demonology. You find his door unlocked and his dead body in a pentagram. Then you have to work out everything else yourself.

    some good views coming out from this thread, its good to see what other people think.

    The wii is a wicked console And I love it, I didnt start this thread to flame any game or console, just mainly to get other peoples views and have a discussion regarding it.

    I was just having a lazy thought while playing the wii hence why I started the thread.

    I very much doubt I will get rid of it, as its most defo the most unique console on the market at the moment and it is "fun".

    Just role on the new games :)

    yes^^ when i said adult games (or atleast teens) i ment something sofisticate. (sp) i like tony hawks (but not the wii one). i consider that to not be a "kiddie" game because your not somthered in, how can it be put, "softened edges"
