GOTM - MAY 2009 - 3RD PLACE!

Apparently it's counting down for 10 days until the game is revealed.

I'm tossing out my guess right now, it will be a wii balance board game where you lay on your stomach and ride down a half-pipe while collecting rings. . . I mean...penguin food.

Oh my god that looks p**s-poor! Nintendo are really grating me with their 'novelty' games. I was really looking forward to buying a Wii until i played my mums; i thought the motion control was awful and really inaccurate! Wii Sports sucked! Mario Galaxy was pretty good but i've never been a big fan of Mario's 3D games.

I bought my girlfriend a DS (for me really!) and i am really impressed with that, but i cannot help notice that it, as well as the Wii, suffers from an frankly terrible games catalogue, especially recently! Nintendo have made a great business move in marketing consoles that appeal to the masses, but i really think they are third behind Microsoft and Sony in terms of producing a great gaming platform this generation

Dont judge the Wii by Wii Music, very few people like that game. I was never a mario fan either, but Super Mario Galaxy really is quite awesome.

That's because the only games that "core" gamers care about anymore involve blowing heads off of people. I'm REALLY tired of everyone only being obsessed with FPS's.

I don't understand why other gamers dis the Wii so much. It's game library is great, and its motion control, when done properly, can work fine.

If you want to blow people up with the awesome IR pointer (Which I predict will be implemented in other companies' next-gen consoles) there's COD, Metroid Prime 3, Brothers in Arms, and two or three other FPS's that I can't remember. O_o And you get to blow things up in Boom Blox.

(MP3's controls are top-notch, by the way.)

Oh, and the conduit looks awesome!

Each to their own in my opinion, i know i am in a huge minority (just look at how many units Nintendo has shifted), however i DO enjoy blowing heads off stuff, i DO enjoy driving cars really fast and i DO enjoy pretending i'm a SAS soldier/space marine/racing driver/hitman and i DON'T enjoy endless mini-game compilations and more sequels to Mario/Zelda/Donkey Kong etc., hence why i put them third.

One game i can't get enough of though is Mario Kart, on any platform - that is masterful coding! The multiplayer aspect is up there with Street Fighter 2 in terms of balance and fairness. SSBB is also another game i'd put up there with those two (though i've not played it much). I used to like Nintendo and i'm not a one-console zealot like alot of people, the Wii just doesn't suit me.

I agree with that statement and i think it may have something to do with the age/gender range of these gamers (i.e. males 15-35), as well as the fact that FPS's lend themselves so well to multiplayer carnage and human nature fuels the competition. It may end one day, and probably will, just as platform games died out after the 16-bit era.

I'm not one for FPSs, but Metroid Prime Hunters and Metroid Prime 3 were cool, mainly because they were First Person Adventures. Too bad there was no multiplayer or online in MP3 like there was in MPH.

The Conduit (a game I don't care about). They say the graphics are so good, but I wouldn't know. Are they really?

See, that's the thing that bugs me... I do enjoy a round of Halo e'ery once in a while and I love racing games, and soldiering games are fun! I'm not fond of endless mini-game collections either. (though some I do enjoy)

The Wii's library has been stereotyped as only having puzzle games and minigames and Mario/Zelda sequels, which is VERY wrong. I've always enjoyed Nintendo's consoles because of the wide range of game types. GC was my favorite because you could have an awesome sprawling-world adventure or a racing game or a shooter or any number of things. PS2 seemed to have an overabundance of Fighting, racing, and otherwise dull games without the something that makes Nintendo games special.

And the Zelda/Mario sequels are different enough from their predecessors to be counted as different. In all the oodles of FPS's that are popular right now, the only major difference is that your character is named something different and the setting is a tad different. I don't get why people nag on Nintendo for making UNIQUE sequels and new IP's when they also say they prefer repetitive FPS's and Fighting games that can only vary within a very small amount. (Which are also often just the 15th iteration of a series)

But, it's fine if the Wii isn't your thing.

Yeah i wasn't very clear there, i apologise. I mean't to say "Nintendo are really grating me with their console's 'novelty' games".

I liked the Gamecube (a friend used to bring his round every week when i lived with my ex) and i have an N64, which i have spent a small fortune on. It's only the Wii i dislike. I own a PS2 and i agree it had similar problems with the abundance of poor games during the latter half of it's life. The XBox 1 had a great catalogue in my opinion, and i never even owned that.

Why would you dislike the Wii if it has the same type of library as the GC? O_o There are games that don't make tacky use of the Wiimote and/or allow Classic controllers and GC controllers.

Put it this way, i also used to love the Mega Drive. However, i wouldn't want my next console to be the same as it, i want something different. If you take out the Wiimote the Wii is little more than a Nintendo version of a PS2. With the PS3 and XBox 360, atleast you get games that take advantage of Blu-Ray and/or High Definition graphics and sound, immersing the player into the shooter/racer/adventure games more than the previous generation. Add to this the fact that a basic XBox 360 is still cheaper than a Wii and has a bigger good-quality games library and an excellent multiplayer online community and you see my point.

I dislike having to re-learn how to swing a tennis racket because the Wii's motion sensor isn't accurate.

It's a shame the DS has all these cack games now, I wanted to buy some proper games today but all the shops have are either super cheap "I WUV BABIES" game or stupidly expensive regular games. 30 for a 1 year old+ Advance Wars game? No sale. Ah well guess I won't be leaving my money.

And I really didn't like RCT3, big mofo fan of 1+2 though. Still got a park I made in 1 that removed all boundaries and just filled every square inch. That said I was also a bigger fan of SC3K than the new 3D ones based off The Sims .

For DS buy Chrono Trigger and Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon or whatever it's called. I heard it's out in Europe. Not here though. Sonic Rush Adventure, Phantom Hourglass, Yoshi's Island DS, Mario Kart.

For Wii, buy Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. Buy Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon. Wario Land if you like platformers. Everyone buy Animal Crossing. I got a silver watering can yesterday. What does a hollow heart icon mean next to a person's name? I have one of those next to Adam's name.

Here's for core gamers on Wii.

http://wii.ign.com/objects/142/14286412.html (Sin and Punishment 2)

I don't tend to like these sorts of games, but you can go ahead and look if you like something more hardcore on Wii.

Oh Psh, that's preposterous. That's like saying the PS2 was Sony's version of the N64. Saying that taking out a key feature of a console makes it not unique is rather obvious, and very weak reasoning. O_o Take out the 360's better graphics and you have an original Xbox. It gets stated overmuch, but graphics aren't everything. You say that you want something different-- not the same as last gen... so why is it that you like the 360 so much? All it did was add better graphics and some more online support. The graphics capabilities of the Wii really aren't all that bad. Sure, they aren't 360 or PS3 quality, but PLENTY enough to make an immersive experience.

The wii remote is actually surprisingly accurate, I've done some work with it in GlovePIE. It's just that not all developers make good titles. Pretty soon there will be gyroscope support in Wiimotes, which will make it even better.

It's really a matter of finding good titles for all of the systems. It just so happens that the Wii's good titles often get overshadowed by shovelware because of its success.

EDIT: Grammar mistake.

Moon and Monster Hunter 3 are what I'm after. Not keen on the Conduit, I like my FPS games to be absolutely spectacular or addictive and from what I've seen Conduit looks too... Generic?
DQ10 is a definite for me though, such retroness.

America used to get a lot of DS games before UK/Europe, but when I was in Manhattan in Sept I found one game that wasn't out yet and that was Viva Pinata for the DS, in the Nintendo World Store. Most other places had crap like Barbie's magical adventure and Hannah Montana games. Virgin had like a bargain bin full of virtual pet games, lol. To be honest people say "Im going to New York on a shopping trip" but there was nothing there that wasn't available in my local city, appart from I NY mugs and t-shirts.

Wow, things are expensive over in Europe. Do recessions make things cheaper or more expensive (referring to the U.S.)? Here most games are $30-40 (20-26).

We got Locoroco 2, Super Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit first It's not a competition though, we get it all in the end one way or another. Also I found that the prices aren't that much different at all? It depends where you look in both countries. Places like Toys R Us sell games at top prices still, but smaller places or specific gaming stores in US, and UK/Europe tend to know how much games are really worth and price them reasonably.

EDIT: Appart from GAME in the UK, they're such con artists nowadays.

GOTM - MAY 2009 - 3RD PLACE!

Yeah Nintendo is going a bit downhill. I honestly don't care for the motion controls in any game I've played other than wii sports. I would rather push a button to make mario spin in galaxy and pointing and clicking at floating stars just isn't fun. Other than that it's a great game. I found some of the controls in metroid 3 hit or miss, especially having to twist and pull to open doors. Pushing a button works 100%, making motions with the controller does not. But I'm not much into fps's anyway. I personally found mario kart for wii extremely underwhelming, too many characters on the track at once smacking you with stuff. Mario Kart 64 had a much better balance and is still my favorite mario kart. Wii has 2 games that I am really looking forward too though, Mad World and Klonoa. But in the end I don't think motion controls will add anything to either of those games and I'd trade that to get them in HD any day. But I suppose not having to blow people away with the graphics is the reason original games like that can exist, and the wii provides that. But if that's the case, they may as well have kept making gamecubes.

The best game for Xbox 360 is Pacman CE.

Lol, I bet Shab just saw James's post and deleted his I dont think Nintendo are going downhill at all. I think Square-Enix and Sega are, though. Square Enix especially.

Oh Psh, that's preposterous. That's like saying the PS2 was Sony's version of the N64. Saying that taking out a key feature of a console makes it not unique is rather obvious, and very weak reasoning. O_o Take out the 360's better graphics and you have an original Xbox. It gets stated overmuch, but graphics aren't everything. You say that you want something different-- not the same as last gen... so why is it that you like the 360 so much? All it did was add better graphics and some more online support. The graphics capabilities of the Wii really aren't all that bad. Sure, they aren't 360 or PS3 quality, but PLENTY enough to make an immersive experience.

The wii remote is actually surprisingly accurate, I've done some work with it in GlovePIE. It's just that not all developers make good titles. Pretty soon there will be gyroscope support in Wiimotes, which will make it even better.

It's really a matter of finding good titles for all of the systems. It just so happens that the Wii's good titles often get overshadowed by shovelware because of its success.

EDIT: Grammar mistake.



To me (and i stress this is just my personal opinion), the 360 is something different to my last console - a PS2. The 360 allows me to play online in a way that wee'd all over Sony's poor networking efforts over the last generation. As for PS2 being their version of the N64, i don't think that's true - both consoles were very different, especially as Nintendo games hardly ever cross-platforms. I stand by my generalisation of the Wii being very similar to a PS2, especially when multiformat games are released and the Wii version is the same as the PS2's, not the PS3's/XBox 360's (see Fifa 09 for example).

I agree that graphics aren't everything and i've said it before on this site more times than i remember. However, with the high-standards the 360 and PS3 have set this generation the Wii's PS2-esque quality really is unappealing to me. Only Nintendo have so far managed to get the best out of that console in terms of graphics and motion controls, and seeing as they release just a handful of games every year it really isn't the console for me.

Heh, I prefer the Wii to any console and I'm not looking forward to any games for it


I love the way people talk about consoles sometimes. Some translations if you will-

My X is covered in dust - you should clean more. Besides it's an electronic device which means it attracts dust, and its wireless and not portable so even one used would still gather dust.
I'm looking forward to just X number of games - awesome! I still play old games that are good. Especially with the depth and replayability in current gen games.

K that's all I can think of and I want to play L4D

None of my systems are covered in dust. Not even the wii. I won't allow it. I get plenty of replayability out of all my older systems but newer games don't usually draw me to play them as long so I'm more selective in what I buy. I say I'm looking forward to mad world and klonoa but there's a good chance when they finally come out I'll get one at most and buy another on clearance or used in 3 years. None of the games I currently own for wii have really made me want to keep coming back, in fact I haven't even beaten mario galaxy, metroid 3, or smash bros. I guess it's just me but I spend more money buying old games than new ones.

Well I don't get the reasoning behind some of that, but I'm entirely ready to forget about it. Though I like the Wii the best, I would just as soon take a 360 controller up and play a bit of it with me friends. If I had any friends with 360's.

Whichever we think is best doesn't really matter to anyone but ourselves, does it? And on a grander scale, do consoles really even matter in the first place? They are just diversions, after all.

B.O.T. I'm so belated in the gaming age, It's not even funny. But then again, the only thing that really quacks my duck (I mean, as far as looks go...) is The Xbox 720. I know I'm probably off topic right now, but I'm too lazy too go over the posts.

I have Xbox 360 and the Wii. I enjoy the graphics and gore of the 360 and the creative game play of the Wii. On 360 my fav's are Saints Row and Gears of war. On Wii I like Mario Kart, Raving Rabbids, and Tiger Woods.
