3.Demand. The numbers don't lie. This thing keeps on flying off the shelves. Consumers want it and it proves NIntendo made something people desire. Enough said.
Bottom Line: Alot of people here like to mock the Wii and critize it here in system wars. The sad part is that the Wii is on it's way to making Nintendo #1 again and maybe the single most improtant piece of hardware in the history of Videogames. Time will tell but at the least its a damn fun system if you just try it.
1. A real Game debate: Does not ignore the good but looks at the good and the bad. Does not pull "facts" out of thier butts and quote other fanboys or sites that are not credible.
2. A normal system war arguement: (90% of the arguments here) Always ignroe the good and always focus on the bad. Often pick out the worst screenshots and comments to highlights. They Often holds very little truth in reality and quote the most assinine sources. They love to lie and live in denial world.
YOu Nintendo Fanboys make me sick. Just because I expect more out of Wii, I'm the dumb one? Get real. The hardware is suppose to be an improvement and these games are simply on an unacceptable level.
After reading about the Wii and seeing numerous screenshots, I was expecting more. There is an acceptable level for every console and the WIi has not reached that level. If you want to be a total fanboy and turn a blind eye to the fact then just STFU and go live in Nintendo world. I for one live in the real world and have been a gamer for over 20 years.
