I think the biggest issue with the Wii is the simple fact that by trying to "think outside the box", most developers are so hellbent on using the motion controls, they're stuck *inside* said box.
There are plenty of games for the DS that *don't* actually use the stylus for everything, or even the dual screens, and make it out of the crap pile unscathed. These developers need to again start thinking outside of the motion control and wii pointer box, and get to the nitty gritty of what's gonna be fun, with or without a gimmick.
Take for example, No More Heroes. The game barely used any motion except for its final kills, and it turned out to be a great title nonetheless. In fact, in the instances it *did* use motion (High/Low hits), it didn't overburden the user with *having* to use all this pointer, move this and that crap.
Simplification is *key* to this console. In the instances that it works out for a particular game, great, use it. Otherwise, stay far, far away from "Motion Controls" if you don't know what the hell you're doing, or tacking it on because it's a focus point of the console.
ugh, opinion based topics ftw!!
i just find it funny, when ppl scream "wii or nothing" "microsoft sucks" "ps3 is the ONLY system out there". really?
i guess, i play games, cuz i LIKE games!! the wii has some great titles, and you can't argue that. it has some shit too. end of line. the 360 has some great titles too (not that i own one, but i've play'd a couple, i liked them, and there are MANY that i would looooove to play), but it also has some shit. end of line. same with the ps3. i want that so badly (it'll be my next system to say the least!!) to play many of their games. end of line. i'm sure the 360 and the ps3 have their share of shizer games. it comes with the territory.
but to say that a game is crap, kinda isn't fair. one man's garbage is another man's treasure. or something like that. just because you (and maybe 99.99999% of the worlds population) think that a certain title sucks, doesn't mean that one outta 4870587389785 people thinks that it doesn't, cuz his opinion DOES count. i don't care who you are, his does. and if he likes it, so be it. live and let live. =D
seriously folks. the good thing about the fools saying that the wii sucks, and are so rigid, only have 2 or 3 posts, so they really don't count in my humble opinion, they are trolls. eff 'em.
i have my wii, and i love it (MADWORLD!!!), and i'll never lose faith in my system. i still want a ps3, and a 360 however. they each have their strengths, and the games that utilize those strengths are the games you'll find me playing.
anyways... back to Muramasa... cuz i like to GAME!! =P
oh I love it, don't get me wrong :P but uh... I was just talking general crappy controls... I think it's fair to say that broken controls ruin a game for anyone... :P
when a company like myth makers makes 1 game and re-hashes that game to make 3 and IGN gives a rating of 2, and the most important vote the readers vote gives even less then yes the games suckss ass, I like some games which got a crap score by IGN but got a decent score by the readers.
I will never buy an xbox I hate bill gates with a vengence and PS3 out of my price bracket
aren't the ps3 and xbox now currently the same price? or at least round about?
See, now *that's* a hater, read above post :P
whether xbox and ps3 go plumit in price I still wont buy 1 I have a wii spent loads on it and thats enough,yes I hate bill gates and your point is?

and if he hates bill gates, will never own anything m$ (personally, professionally might be a bit harder to do...) then thats his choice, and i fully support it. don't understand it, nor do i condone it, but hey. its his dollar, and he can spend it how he chooses. =] me, i'll have a 360, my win 7 gaming computer, and my ps3 (in reverse order of course)
I second that!
There are lot of crappy games for the wii.
Only very few make a good console game for it.
My opinion of Wii Games than don't SUCK are:
Bully - Scholarship Edition
Wario Ware smooth moves
Super Smash Bros
Zelda - Twilight Princess
Guitar Hero franchise
only a handful of wiiware and virtual console games such as sonic the hedgehog, streets of rage, paper mario, f-zero, uno, helix and some others...
there may be more that you enjoy, but lets face it.
The majority of wii games are pure suckages ;)
