I never was really crazy about the Wii from the start. First off, they didn't change the name to Nintendo Revolution, in my opinion a ten times better name. But where they really lost we was the way it was designed. The lack of Power and HD really doesn't help it's point, my poiunt that they are abandoning the hardcore gamer. If you watched E3 like I did and heard their conference, you know where I'm coming from. Don't get me wrong, I love games like Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl to name a few. But when their best selling and most marketed game are a "variety" of minigames, I really don't buy it when they say we care about the hardcore gamer. To point out though, this is for just the Wii. I really like what the DS is doing and I hope they keep it up.
Also I don't want to point with the Wii mote or shoot with the fake Wii gun thing (whatever the heck it is called) which is not very good either to shoot not the prettiest looking Nazis. The PC is there for point and click, its already taken and does a much better job.
This leads me to the only solution I could think of. It may sound crazy, but make a new controller. Not to replace the Wii mote, but to be a secondary for gamers who don't want to play games like Brawl with the Wii mote (I need the Gamecube controller) and for developers who want to make their game expand consoles, but don't want to recreate their game for the Wii. Now the lack of Power and HD will hurt obviously, but its a start. Make an Xbox 360/PS3/Gamecube type controller.
The Wii is making tons of money, especially from the casual gamer. So I see why they are going the way they are going. But don't forget about us Nintendo. Forget the made or in the making Wii motion plus (I don't even know) and make a controller. My family/relative love the Wii. For people who don't game it's so unique and easy to pick up. But please Nintendo don't forget about us, Thanks for reading and post some comments. I want to know what you think about this. Hope you enjoyed it!
