Why are Wii games so incredibly linear?

Linear is casual friendly. Game developers think Wii games need to be casual friendly in order to sell.

Which is funny if you consider that sandbox-style games are considered some of the most casual-friendly types of games, and those are probably the least linear.

Then there's Minecraft....

You know that linear shooter =/= rail shooter, right? If the Wii could only play rail shooters without exploding, it would explode as soon as you popped in Conduit 1.

Then there's Minecraft....

Linear isn't necessarily a bad thing.
I apologize for whatever I just said.
