Is the trend going to die finally

Can they get back to making some cool games.
Assuming they are the same people that made them in the first place.

What are you talking about?

The Wii had cool games?

For those out of the loop: Nintendo's sales and profits are down.

I assume he means Nintendo.


In which case, they never stopped making cool games, really. Almost all the new stuff they've done this generation has been pretty cool.

Mario Galaxy was pretty kick ass, but I think it ends there.

Punch-Out!!, Klonoa, HotD: Overkill, SSBB, The Munchables, Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom, and a bunch others say "what's up?" >:|

True. Maybe i'm already wearing my rose tinted glasses but I will never forget the first time I played Wii Fit. So many memories from just one game.

They are indeed. Unfortunately for those who think that Nintendo is a blight on gaming, a few million down from a billion is still a shit ton of money.

Yes, they're going to start making cool games again.

But seriously, there has been quite a few Wii games that I've wanted to play this year.

Whether or not you like it or saw lasting value in it, it was new. He never said good, he said cool.

NIntendo isn't the only company seeing a drop in profits.  Sony and Microsoft both saw declines as well.  Nintendo's just makes more of an impact because they were selling consoles at an unprecedented rate for far longer than anyone could have really anticipated.  At the end of the day, it's still the case that more Wiis have been sold than PS3s or 360s, and they're still making a healthy profit.

Also, they never stopped making kick-ass games.  Mario Galaxy, Fire Emblem, Punch-Out!! and heck, even Wii Sports Resort are all some of the best games on the platform.

Everyone is suffering. MS are down, Sony are down, Nintendo are down.

Wel, it is cool that I don't have to pay for a real Weight Watchers subscription when I can just use my Wii instead. I can't wait for the upcoming Wii HIV Test Party! That seems like a pretty new and cool idea.

You start a peanut thread and the monkeys will come  :-)


These Wii hate threads are just getting sad.  A constant recycling of insipidness.  :-)

New mario whores and that 2D action Demon sword game are on my radar. For the first time in a long time I might actually buy a wii game.

" Awesome Wii games

You have "I haven't played Wii since 06 that's why I can make qualified comments about it's library" syndrome. Don't worry - it's very common. "
Beat me to it. The number of great Wii games that are coming out in the next couple of years is a definite contrast with what's been released in recent years.

Probably the Wii's fault.  It's got what?  a million different sport-themed games?  Every time I look at the Wii section I get depressed.  There's the occastional gem, but the wiimote and nunchuck system make the controls bloody impossible.  I got one of the RE Archives and it was rediculous.  The best Wii game I've seen so far was the House of the Dead 2&3 combo.  My favorite Wii game is a sequal to an arcade game.  Jeez
