Yes. This is a defense topic. I see a lot of hate on the Wii. A lot of how it isn't for hardcores, only for casuals and have only 5 worthy games.
I want to tell you that I have had a lot of great experiences on my Wii, a lot more than with my PS3 (THIS IS NOT AN INSULT AGAINST THE PS3 I LOVE IT DON'T KILL ME).
You see, gaming for me is all about the experience. Is the Wii games fun? And yes, it is quite fun playing the obvious titles like Mario Kart Wii and SSBB with my friends. But those are not the only good games. Nor is the Mario Galaxy games or the Zelda games. They're all great, but they're not the only ones.
When Donkey Kong Country Returns came out I was so psyched. Finally, my favorite series is revived! The gameplay was just like it should been on the original DKC, especially the multiplayer and while the game could be quite easy some times, it was still a great experiences and I loved the scenery. I also fell in love in Disney Epic Mickey. Mostly because I love old Disney.
Then the games like Xenoblade, TLS and Pandora's Tower came out. Awesome games and everyone should play them. I have 35 Wii games. And I've played them all a lot. Sure, Ju-On's control scheme is extremely bad, but I still liked it for some weird reason. Muramasa the Demon blade's gameplay can be quite boring some times too. But I still feel it's a great game.
My point is, the Wii isn't as horrible as a lot of people say. There's a lot of great titles to be found for usually a cheap price and they're all worth it. People only praise the Wii for its sales, but keep saying it was only for casuals. I think you guys are wrong. The Wii offers more than a bunch of casual titles and I think that your "lol I'm a hardcore gamer thus I'm superior to you 'cause I only play games that are realistic!" makes you miss a lot. And of course, if you only look at the bad stuff you will only see the bad stuff. (This is more directed to my friends which criticized Madworld only because it was in black and white)
But maybe it's just because I like all genres and is easily happy with games. Anyways, my little rant is over.
TL;DR; I think the Wii has a great library of games.
