A video game system that appeals to the casual gamer. Created by Nintendo, the Wii is a system driven by new technology, but has had limited quality software. The library is composed of mostly party games and a few AAA titles: Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Resident Evil 4, Super Paper Mario. Although the Wii has had an amazing run in its first year of sales, it is not a true next-gen system(circa 2008), nor is it a system targeted at the average or hardcore gamer. Currently, Nintendo has been unable to assure that quality titles will be released regularly as 2008's release schedule seems lackluster. Without some assurance of a promising future, Nintendo's Wii might follow in the steps of the N64 and Gamecube and be known as merely an expensive toy, rather than a gaming system. Fad? only the future will tell.
I really only play my Wii when my friends are over.. but that's why I have my 360/PS3.
