Comment Re:Learned our lesson from the Wii (Score 1) 281

I still love my Wii. It has my favourite games of this generation of consoles such as Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Zelda TP & SS, Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, Pandoras Tower, Metroid Prime Trilogy (amazing FPS experience on a console IMHO), Okami (PS2 port I know but it is so much better on the Wii), Super Paper Mario... I could go on and go.

Yes I enjoy other games not on the Wii such as CoD:BO2, Uncharted, God of War, etc. but over all if I had to pick one console I would pick the Wii without question. I bought it for entertainment and fun not to just have 1080p@60fps graphics. If I was a graphics addict I wouldn't bother with a console anyway as a PC easily offers far greater graphical performance. I never really understood when people say attack the Wii (and the Wii U now) for not being the most powerful console possible. I will take amazing gameplay over HD graphics any day. Super Mario Galaxy is a great example of this. It didn't have amazing graphics (although they were still pretty damn beautiful) but god damn that game was a superb platform game. Absolutely amazing gameplay.
