Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks - I really tried to like it, since LoZ is my favorite game franchise and I never miss a title, but I got half way through it and just got tired of the controls and constant train delivery crap needed to unlock all the new sections of the game, so I sold it immediately.
Just recently purchased Mario Party 9 and my sons, ages 6 & 8 love it. I have owned & played the series since the original on the N64, but this is the first one that they've tried to play as they weren't old enough to understand the controls and rules of the others, so basically just my wife & I played them. I have to say this one is a lot simpler & I'm glad for that, as they wanted to try the 4th one on the Gamecube and it was still a bit tough for them. That said, I've also recently downloaded Super Mario RPG & Mega Man 9 to my Wii for my own enjoyment & to show them some great old school games that they've gotten a kick out of & now they love Mario & Mega Man and can't stop talking about the characters!
This is just a rehash of another article I just read on Yahoo stating the same crap. Personally, I'm a Nintendo fan til the end, and only buy Nintendo games & systems, and I even also own both an ipod touch and an iphone 3Gs. I have about 6 games on my phone that are mostly things like solitaire and puzzle games that I can just play for a few minutes here and there, and 4 on the touch which are crap for my kids like a roller coaster game and some racing games, but they hardly play them. I use the phone for a phone and a second internet device more than a game system which is why I have both a 3DS and a DSI XL for playing real games, and my family gets use out of our Wii every day still & are looking forward to the Wii U & more great games for the 3DS.
I don't understand all the hate for not having point cards anymore. I hate the point card system, since I have to use my debit card anyway to buy the damn point cards in the first place. This takes out a step and is a much better system. Now, if they'll get rid of the points on the Wii as well, then I might actually buy some VC games.
Fortunately my Wii is sitting right next to my Gamecube... figure I'll just stack the Wii U on top the Wii and not worry too much about it. Though, shit, it sucks when the first two eventually conk out, oh well, by then Virtual Console will have Gamecube games.
Same here. I never got rid of my Game Cube, mostly due to the Game Boy player add on. I usually just play my GC games on the actual GC rather than on the Wii.
