to stay or jump ship

Post by RollingSilver on Thu Sep 24, 2009 12:56 am

i'm proud to say i own a wii, yet i always see annoying comments in gaming forums and other sites that the wii is not a gaming console or it has no AAA games, or whatever stupid thing people has to say about it. and i wonder, since lots of people are saying these things in unison, they could be right.

i have a question for all of you: are we real gamers for having fun with wii games and accepting their flaws - frame rate drop, low-res graphics, less-intelligent AI - or are we brainwashed by nintendo that we just hide our frustrations and say that we enjoy the wii when we really don't? is that why we own more than one console? people keep saying their wiis are "collecting dust," and i'm SO TIRED of hearing that

i know i'm asking a silly question but when i see so much wii-bashing threads, i can't help but think i'm in a sea full of sharks.

oh man i know how you feel, i see the Collecting Dust comment all the time... trust me man when i say this.. if they own a 360 and wii or ps3 or all the consoles.. and then leave a console that they don't use much because they hate it.. there not real gamers, real gamers likes to play games from wii, ps3, and 360 regardless because they have huge library they can chose from, i have a ps3 and i don't let the wii collect dust no fucking way (the wii is my console of choice).. a matter of fact i buy games for both systems when a game comes out on the wii or ps3 that i want, i buy it

and do u go to IGN? you signed up for the wii network didnt ya? do u go to gaming sites to find news on the wii? if you do, your a gamer, casual gamers do not go to gaming sites or anything gaming related don't let these noobs get into your head lol

yea thats what they want they are either fan boys or people who hate the wii and in my opinion fan boys and console haters arnt gamers they just flame sites because their console of choice isnt supplying them with enough or what they want. And i played cod 5 on 360 and wii and wow i found it funner on wii
... dont ask me why i just found it borin on 360 but thats my opinion so dont go hating Razz i know 360 and ps3 version is better in almost every way but it wasnt as fun (exept zombies play split screen wit my friends

ever read people jumping ship because wii "doesn't have good games?" and then wii owners list a shit-ton of games to prove these ignorant morons wrong.

i think it's pointless since we don't have enough AAA titles to prove them wrong. Mario Galaxy? Metroid Prime 3? Brawl? Twilight Princess? No More Heroes? Muramasa? there's no way they can compete with Grand Theft Auto, Metal Gear, Valkyria Chronicles, Final Fantasy XIII, Heavy Rain, and Killzone 2 right?

We've got Monster Hunter 3
"boo, it should belong to PS3, not that excuse for a gaming console"

The atmospheric, well-written, character driven Dead Space Extraction
"get out of my face with that shit. it's a rail shooter and it doesn't deserve to be on wii. plus it looks less scary and it just plain sucks cuz it's on wii. EA might as well put that on PS3/360 as a third person shooter"
-By the way, i personally yearn for a game like this: character driven

Muramasa
"you think wii owners are gonna buy that? it should belong on PSN/XBOX LIVE"
My Reply: you guys are getting shank and that game looks and plays cooler than muramasa so quit yer whining! no disrespect to muramasa, i love that game

whatever, i can go on and on about this but you get my drift

Well alot of " Real Gamers " are biased that only rely on one consolee for games. They never give it a chance. I don't blame the consoles I blame the developers.

Here's what, as far as I'm concerned, is the definition of a gamer; one who loves video games. Note that I did not say "one who loves Xbox games" or "one who loves Playstation games." One must love ALL games (not every single game, of course, but video games in general, blind to system) to be a gamer. You can still be loyal, even fiercely loyal to a company or system; I am FIERCELY loyal to Nintendo, but that doesn't stop me from playing (and LOVING it) Perfect Dark Zero, Halo, Halo Wars, Fable, etc. when my friends bring their 360s over, nor does it stop me from LOVING GTA4, MGS4, Resistance, etc. when my friend brings his PS3 over. I love VIDEO GAMES. Not just Wii games. Not just Nintendo games. VIDEO games. If you hate a specific system and can't give some DAMN good reasons why and/or look past your hatred for the SYSTEM and enjoy and recognize positives about the GAMES, then you're probably not a real gamer. I hate the Xbox 360, but I will be the first to admit that it has some DAMN good games that I would kill to own; I'm just unwilling to buy a system with a fail rate that high.

To stay or jump ship? Man, I hate fanboys. You do realize you are allowed to own multiple consoles.

The people here DO have other consoles. sikokiller just said he has a PS3, but he favors the Wii more. I have a 360, but I favor the Wii more. I want to get a PS3, but I need a job first. Do you not read the comments?

Well Hello Everyone this is my 1st Post But i seen what has been going on.
i own a wii and ps3. I love my wii the most im sick of the level of disrespect people have towards the wii. Just cause i dont like to sit around and play halo. all day doesnt not say im not a hardcore gamer. the wii has alot to offer and it could be better it hasnt lived up to what i thought it would be at launch but i love Nintendo. and the future looks bright with the 2010 titles lets hold our heads high and hope Nintendo Listens to the fans more.

I was referring to fanboys in general, not you. Those comments were focused at the topic creator. To stay or jump ship? He makes it sound he has a lack of choices on how many consoles he is allowed to own. Only fanboy would try to influence a consumer that way. Do you not realize what I am alluding to?

yeah, i was a little cracked in the head after reading so many of those comments. i'm straightened out now so thanks. talk about insecurity level Razz . but seriously, thanks. i never regret anything as long as i know what i'm doing and what's ahead of it, but when people with different thoughts - smart and stupid - attack me, i start to think otherwise because i do hear facts from the other side.

*sigh* insecurity's a bitch

meh, i would never abandon the wii since there are games i'm really looking forward to (tales of graces and fragile ftw). plus i'm a nintendo fan so i won't jump ship. i was just succumbed by those comments and assumed that they were right; there's waaaay too many of them.

and people sell their wiis because it isn't HARDCOAR enough. pfft stupid
