I'm sick and tired of people hating on the original Wii

Yep, it's all the same generic complaints. Ya know, it makes me wonder what "good games" people actually tried before "giving up" on the Wii and "moving on" to the "superior" HD consoles. I mean honestly, the more I enjoy the Wii the more I wonder why it's so "bad" in the first place. The quotations are there for a reason. lol

Oh wait, most of you have never even played a lot of the great titles on Wii. Well now, that explains it.


okay so list these 'great' titles

Oh, and HD being a gimmick? Really? LO F--ing L.


It must be seeing as how so many RPGs went to non-HD handhelds instead of the HD consoles.


I don't see your connection to my comment. But I do know that a lot of RPGs did go the PSP and some to the DS. However, not many of those ended up on the Wii, which should have been a good fit for lower budget games. Still, the PS3 and 360 got RPGs like Fallout 3/NV, and Oblivion/Skyrim and others, and they look awesome on HD TVs. When I first got my 1080p HDTV, and I started playing Oblivion, I was in awe. Then games like Uncharted, Fallout and Skyrim came out and they are stunning in full HD. Heck, even Mario Galaxy 1/2 looked amazing on HD TV, that was a great looking game.

Really, I'd say it came down to the games we could call gems. Many games were tailored to the whole family, or elderly people, or the fitness savvy.

But there were definently games on the Wii that made me love the system. And as for graphics? I still play my N64, even though most games look like **** on it these days.

Okay, I'll list all of the amazing Wii titles out there! :D

Assassin's Creed (series)
Mass Effect (series)
Dead Space (series)
Left 4 Dead (series)
Portal (series)
Borderlands (series)
BioShock (series)
Dark Souls
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Resident Evil 5
Darksiders
Battlefield 3
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Fallout 3

Man, look at all of those good ga-..... Oh never mind, those games are on the Wii so they're automatically bad.

Do you get the joke? It should be pretty obvious why I'm not making any Wii game lists. Unfortunately, I have way too much experience with this Wii defending crap. >_>

For those RPGs you mentioned, I'd only play them on PC (and have). Perhaps I should clarify that I meant turn-based RPGs like from PS2-era. Even if it were something like Persona 4 Golden; while not my first choice, I'd still rather play that than 70% of the Wii U's launch titles.

Yeah, it really just depends on how important certain multi-plat games are for people.


Until I see something like Persona 4 Golden or another turn-based JRPG get a multi-platform release on Wii U, I see no reason to care.


Why the hell did you quote me? That had nothing to do with what I was talking about.

Also, why would you compare the Vita to the Wii U? Compare it to the DS/3DS... which will get turn based JRPGs.

I agree with you, completely. I like turn-based RPGs too, but I also really enjoy WRPGs. I know that the PC version are great, but nothing beats playing in on the big screen TV for me; that's just me though.

Vita costs about the same as the Wii U (when you factor in the memory cards). In contrast, I only paid $200 for a 3DS XL. And further, that illustrates my point: what good are HD systems if they don't have JRPGs anymore?
