(not that I hate them, but I wish nintendo would start putting more effort into originality.)
Oh, fuck this.
What you said.
Nintendo makes the best stuff on the system, and everyone just ignores the best of the third party games. Did anyone play Little King's Story or Madworld?
Also, news flash:
Sturgen's Law. 90% of everything is shit. No exceptions, and we usually just block out the shit.
Yes I have played Madworld, it's O.K. Nothing to get excited about. Really? Going to bring Sturgeo
n's law into this? Come on now, not only is it just a pessimistic view on life, but it's easily disproven, and I won't get into that because it's really not worth it.
Let's play devil's advocate and say you're right, that 90% of the PS3 games out there are crap. Even if that were true(which clearly it is not), the games that are good are PHENOMINAL. There is not a single game on the Wii that made me say “Man, I’m glad I bought this system.” On the PS3 and Xbox, you have games like God of War, Uncharted, Mass Effect, Halo (only story mode for me), Dead Rising, Dead Space (The Wii version is of course a rail shooter, and it was cool, but nothing compared to PS3 or X360), Resident Evil, Army of Two, Fallout, Red Faction, Little Big Planet, MGS, Street Fighter 4, Resistance, etc. I could go on for a long time. These games made me appreciate the fact that I went out and spent $600 of my hard earned cash on my system.
The Wii has Zelda (which I preferred the GameCube version of), Metroid (still prefer the SNES version), and Mario (fun… but I find myself bored a few hours into it). Sure you can throw in a few other games in there, but none of them (including the Zelda, Metroid and Mario games) really amazed me, they were just enjoyable. When I’m playing Uncharted 2, I have an enormous gaming boner pretty much the whole time. The ONLY
game that really peaked my interest on the Wii is Monster Hunter, which I have not had a chance to play yet. Uncharted 1 &2, and God of War are near flawless games, the wii in general (and especially in that genre) has nothing that even comes close to those games. Hell, I’d rather play any of my PS2 games over a good majority of the Wii games out there.
Again, this is just my opinion, maybe to you Carnival Games is just as awesome as God of War is to me. Perhaps you and every other middle-aged woman love playing samba de amigo in your living room for hours on end. No, I kid, I kid, I know you like backyard baseball.
