I mean, what does the console have going for it? 
 
Online sucks, controls are bullshit for the most part, the games are all ''meh'', seriously...what does it have going for it? 
 
Someone please tell me, why would you buy this if the games are only ''meh''.

Oh this is going to end well. Just so you know, I like the Wii and it has great games for it. That is all. I'm leaving.

Amazing. Yes. Nice shot. Bullseye.
 
I like my Wii, I played some great games on it and I'm looking forward to future releases.

This will get locked before anything even happens. 
 
I sort of wish it didn't though, it would be entertaining.

I never get to see these train wrecks from the beginning. I'm taking a seat in front of these tracks.

Yes, there is no good games for the Wii. You know what, fuck the Wii..... Oh, wait..

I personally prefer the Sony Wii. It's got Uncharted, the online is pretty good, the motions controls aren't too good but hey...you take what you can get.

Oh and guys, I am not a troll either. 
 
I just don't like the Wii, simple.

If you expanded your search for quality Wii games beyond shitty Youtube comments, I think you'd find that the Wii has plenty of great games. 
 
Granted, not as many as the 360 or the PS3, but more than enough to justify a purchase.

You're all a part of the problem, including me!

@Yukoei:  This isn't a well-formulated thread, but for the sake of closing such an irritating discussion, I will answer.
(1) Do you like Mario, Zelda, Metroid, or Resident EvIl? I've heard those are pretty important franchises for modern gaming.
(2) Online is always a mixed bag, and usually more shit than worthwhile - with it comes subscription fees, nickel-and-dime DLCs, crappy communities, etc. If I can play a game that's longer than 4 hours because it doesn't have multiplayer then that is perfectly ok with me.
(3) Classic controller, GC controller. The Wii-mote isn't that bad, especially with the motion plus. Have you actually tried it? Some genres are much improved, and it isn't that hard to get used to - lightgun shooters, adventure games,  sports, etc.
(4) There are plenty of good games for it, enough to keep most people busy, and some of them are criminally under-rated. You should probably do some research.
No one buys a system because they think it's meh. They buy a system because it has games they can't get elsewhere and want to play.
