Why I hate the Wii.

Rate this Entry
Brought on by the Opinion article in Game Informer. Oh, god, the friggin' Wii is my least favorite game system ever. Don't get me wrong, I love the slew of top-notch first-party games on the thing (Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Metroid Prime 3, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, DKCR...just...oh my god. Wow.), but the god-awful hardware is just...ugh. Why couldn't we have the Gamecube 2? Just...motion control. It's all terrible, and it's all the Wii's fault. I HATE MOTION CONTROL. More later.

    You're wrong, the Wii was awesome.

    I don't like the Wii a lot compared to the DS and 3DS, but it was still good.

    Having had all three consoles this gen, I enjoyed them all. Because honestly my Wii was worth it for Smash, Metroid and Galaxy alone. And Wii Golf. Fuck yeah Wii Golf.

    Now I can see why the hardware / motion control would be annoying but I enjoyed it because I wasn't tied to it. If I wanted to play a shooter (which the Wii could have done so well but never managed to do sadly) or a sports game like football (where motion controls are impractical), I had my Xbox.

    So in short the Wii was enjoyable, but it's a niche system. I wouldn't own it on its own because of its shortcomings (in my opinion), but it's a great addition to a gamer's library.

    Motion control was innovative in 2006

    The Wii is perhaps the most controversial console of all time because of the clash of innovation and "playing safe."
