    Which Wii Titles convinced you to buy a Wii?

    Hi all,

    I have owned 2 Wii's over the last 5 years (my first one died when my cat chew through the AC cable shorting out the whole system!).

    I was wondering, with stiff competition from both Sony and Microsoft (as well as a crazy PC gaming scene), which Wii games sold you on buying a Wii?

    Spoiler



    So I've given you my two cents... what games drove you to buy a Wii?

    No game for me. I've owned every Nintendo console since the first one. I knew that games would be coming, even if the games that I wanted were around at launch, though, having a Zelda game at launch was pretty sweet, even if it was a GameCube game delayed about 3 years. It was better than nothing.

    That, and the Virtual Console service sounded intriging. I must have dumped a few hundred dollars in VC/WiiWare over the years. Which is why it was worth it for me to pay the $85 repair charges when it needed out of warranty repair vs. just getting a new system.

    The same with Wii U. I bought it at launch since I knew games would be coming eventually.

    While we're on the topic, I bought PS3 expecting that FFXIII would be Sony exclusive as all past Final Fantasies have been since VII, but they turned that into multi-console release. When it comes to PS4, I'll be waiting for games that I'd want to play to be released that don't have Wii U releases to them as well.

    For Wii I bought it mostly because of the Virtual Console but for actual Wii games Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Red Steel, and the inevitable release of new Zelda and Mario games helped to convince me it was a worthwhile purchase. Those actually weren't the only games though, I discovered a number of titles over the years that I've really enjoyed coupled with the fact my Wii plays GameCube games

    For the Wii U it was a amalgam of things that convinced me. The Wii U was pretty much everything I expected the old Wii would be but with more. Sadly the Wii U is facing a content drought right now (the only games I have are Nintendo Land which came with the system and The Amazing Spider-Man...used to have Batman Arkham City but saw no need to keep it since I have it on Xbox). I am confident it will find it legs by the summer time and garner the amount of interest the old Wii got. Now what I'm really looking forward to is being able to mod my Wii U, it will be the perfect gaming/entertainment machine when FCE Ultra GX, SNES9X GX, Not64, WiiSX, Devolution and WiiMC get ported to it...of course we'll need some way to stop those pesky updates from bricking the Wii U but I suppose I'm getting a little off topic here.

    My main point, I bought systems for not only what was available but the prospect of what will come (The Legend of Zelda the Wind Waker HD is a huge reason I'm keeping my Wii U).
