make a list of "good" wii games. i need a laugh

SSBB - MLG Pro Circuit (yes, people make money out of playing it)

MKWii

New Super Mario Bros Wii

Dead Space Extraction

LoZ:TP

Red Steel (and 2)

Super Mario Galaxy (and 2)

Metroid Prime: Corruption

Metriod: Other M

Kirby's Epic Yarn

* A whole raft of Virtual Console games, including LoZ:OoT, one of if not the most critically acclaimed video game of all time.

* Backwards compatibility with all GC games, of which there are quite a few 'good' games.

 

We've not even begun to talk about what the Wii's actual target market is into. Like them, scave them, hell blow them up with fireworks for all I care, but Wii Fit was one of the company's biggest success stories. It doesn't help people lose weight, it's not even a game technically, but it sold in bulk and made lots of profit. End of.

If any companies are currently playing catch up it is undoubtedly Sony and Microsoft. The amount of effort and money they have put into emulating Wii's success with motion controls shows just how far behind they were in console sales. Love it or hate it, the fact is that it outsold the other two. It may not cater to hardcore gamers as much, but it sure as hell caters to more people overall.

 

Unlike Microsoft and Sony who aren't exactly having the best of time with their motion controls as they are nothing more than gimmicks in nearly every game, slowing you down with arm waving where buttons would be better, Nintendo has brought something which actually innovates. Once again, they will be ahead of the curve, and this time they not only have the innovation but the 3rd party publishers to plug the hole of hardcore gamers.

 

It isn't good when people are incredibly biased fanboys not listening to reason, but it's just as bad when people are incredibly biased the other way and don't listen to reason or actually think.

 

Edit: thought this was quite funny:

unless you're a stockholder for nintendo, why would you orgasm over their sales?

 

all it means is that nintendo has a lot of sheep that they can milk.

And unless you're a fanboy, it shouldn't matter so long as you get a good game out of it.

that has nothing to do with what i said

go play cursed mountain. it's fun

Must I really? Should I note 3rd party only? Whichever.

 

3rd party

Zack and Wiki (best 3rd party Wii game in my opinion)

Okami

Resident Evil 4

No More Heroes

Mad World

Geometry Wars: Galaxies

The Conduit 1 & 2

Red Steel 1 and/or 2 (not sure which is better, as I've never played any of these two...)

Rayman Raving Rabbids (yea, I put a minigame collection on here, but this one [one] of the first and is perhaps the best).

World of Goo (pretty sure this is only on the Wii as far as consoles are concerned)

Cave Story (WiiWare, but you asked for games).

 

1st party

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption & Metroid: Other M

Mario Kart Wii & Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, maybe NSMB

Kirby Epic Yarn

Super Smash Bros Brawl

others I can't think of at this point in time

 

Come back, try again.

 

For the record, I own all three consoles. The most played has been the Wii. Strange. For example, here are the best (in my opinion) games on the PS3: Demon's Souls, 3D Dot Game Heroes, LBP 1 & 2, Portal 2.

Are you really going to try and defend 'The Conduit' series as being anything but abysmal?

 

I mean I'd really like your rationale for that. I think you should be the one to explain. I mean I could almost see a defense for the 1st (it wasn't good but still) but the 2nd is just pure garbage, even by a Wii FPS benchmark.

I played the games, thought it was very good. Then again, I'm not a usual bash-Wii guy :'(

 

How can you call a game good if you've never played it? (In reference to Red Steel)

 

Let me reword the question: how can you call a game bad if you've never played it? Yet, around here, I see this sentiment from many individuals.

have you played other FPS games?

 

Eh forget it, no point in trying to argue. Point being though is that a lot of those games you listed as 'amazing' Wii experiences are just mediocre games in general. (or subpar ports from other systems). The only decent games the Wii has are a handful of it's first party titles. Problem is Nintendo needs more than just 1st party titles to sell a console.

Have you played any games on my aforementioned list for more than 26 seconds? Just wondering! I can make aimless questions based on difference in opinion all day, too. It's easy!

I've seen enough video of most of those games to make a decent opinion off of them. I'm not going to go out and waste money on a Wii and games just so someone on the internet will let me have an opinion about them. I don't have to play a game to know its garbage (case in point the level design in Conduit 2 looks like it came straight out of an N64 era FPS. Not even trolling either, I think Goldeneye had more varied environments).

 

I don't even remember what the original purpose of the argument was. Something about the Wii having poor 3rd party support, which is true. Even if you think those games are incredible there is a large number of people who find the Wii's 3rd party options to be poor. (and Nintendo has historically had that issue.)

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO, going back to E3, has anyone felt kind of.. disapointed with the conferences? I mean, there were some good ones (Sony, Nintendo, Ubi), but nothing that gamebreaking.

 

Plus, what was the moment of E3 2011 for you? Mine was:

Yeah E3 was boring.

 

Only good thing is Giant Bomb had a ton of people from the industry to talk to and got some incredible interviews and podcasts done. As far as the actual press conferences go they were real disappointing though.

My point stands.

 

As far as E3 goes, I still stand behind what I think of the "best" conferences from the big 3, in that Nintendo's conference was most impressive, followed by Sony's and then ....... Microsoft's.

For the record me and Boros are two different people and share two different opinions.

Your point? You didn't make a point, you completely avoided giving a real answer to my question by saying that.

I see my formatting has failed. I simply reversed some random dude's comment and it (unsurprisingly) applies to another dude's comment.

 

How amazing!

Point is me and that other dude don't share the same opinions.

 

If you can like things without playing them I can dislike them without playing. At any rate this entire argument has gotten dumb. I really was hoping to understand why you enjoyed Conduit 2 though, no troll.

I see we have a failure to communicate. I did not (and do not) care to answer your question, but I saw a prime opportunity to prove a point, in that you can't judge a game if you've never played it. Nadril proved my point by admitting he has never played The Conduit and so forth, and I proved it by going by others' opinions. So see, we're all guilty of it in the end!

This argument is moving nowhere, the "you can't judge a game if you've never played it" applies to both of our sides. At this point we're treading water, I'm done here.

Ps. Lets end this back and forth bickering as I see it going nowhere good.
