Red....to pass the ball you pick the WR using the D-pad, A, B, and then swing the Wii-remote forward like you are actually passing a ball :D

Rowdy, sadly even though EA has a whole branch based to work on Wii games they haven't made the NHL franchise available yet....

Metallidevils...the same can be said about the novelty of good graphics though...I've owned a Wii for a year now and as the good games go then so does my interest but I have found (having owned numerous systems) that there have been a lot more games on the Wii than other systems that have good replay value (Wii Sports, Big Brain Academy, The Bigs, Madden, MLB Power Pros, Zelda, Mario Galaxy, Mario Strikers, Metroid Prime, and Trauma Center to name a few)....I've also borrowed a 360 for about a month a piece on two different occasions and of course was wowed with the graphics but overall found less games that I could play over and over again after I initially finished them...Bioshock is an amazing game, the graphics are stellar as is the story and music and this is coming from someone who admittedly hates FPS games..it turned me around...I loved it but after I finished it there was no point to pick it up again...on the flip side after I beat Twilight Princess (the Wii Zelda game) I could go back and still gallop around the countryside shooting orcs with my bow and arrow all over again or even find the many hidden secrets within the game....

again, I've said it before it comes down to preference...sure you can get bored with the controls of the Wii but no quicker than you can get bored with the graphics of the PS3 or 360...both systems have great games..the only reason why I responded to your post in the first place wasn't to debate the quality of each system but to point out the fact that you were knocking the Wii with no real regard to the facts about the system...

I understand that, however the library of games will always be there for the 360 and ps3, therefore it'll be harder to get bored of. Plus new technologies are being developed, like the DMM technology for the SW:Force Unleashed game, which will keep things interesting for a while.

True about the library of games...that unfortunately hasn't been a strong suit for Nintendo however EA is getting in line with their new studio opened dedicated solely to the Wii...I'm anticipating the Star Wars game for the Wii...Lucas says it'll be exciting let the fans use the force and a light saber in such a way the Wii provides....however I'm disappointed in not being able to play Fable 2 or GTA unless I get a 360...that really is the best option if you have the money...get a 360 and a Wii...

The real problem for the Wii owner is the fact that the other two systems have no problem using the ideas of Nintendo and implementing them in their already cool consoles (i.e. the PS3's controller that senses slight rotating movements) and Nintendo never seems to get into that...Xbox live already has something good why not build off of something similar and instead go with the ever innovative "friend codes" blah!

the Wii is a joke. My cousin got it for xmas yesterday and the only decent game was the Wii Sports package.. shooting games are too difficult to bother with, we tried Madden 08 and it was terrible I couldnt figure out how to hit properly.. Really not worth it IMO.. it looks more for young kids than anything

And oh yeah, the graphics dont even compare to the 360 or PS3

I got a Wii a year ago.
Game I got? A bunch of Gamecube games since well, never had a GC. The Wii games I got were:

The Godfather (good fun with the Wii controls, shooting isn't as easy as the PC version though.)
Resident Evil 4 (Wii version >>>>>>> GC version, controls are fantastic. Shooting is fun).
Super Paper Mario (Good fun, not as good as the other Paper Mario games though)

I got Madden 07, Excite Truck, and something else I don't remember right now. I really want Super Smash Brothers Brawl. Metroid, maybe. Galaxy, maybe. I was never a Nintendo guy, I'm a PC Gamer.

I play my PC the most, then I play on my 360 (NHL 08, GH2) and then on my Wii. I don't have a PS3, I don't want a PS3. The exclusives it has kinda suck and the other games are on 360.

That's why I got a 360 to compliment my PC Gamer self. And the Wii is just bloody good fun.

I don't have a Wii but I've heard very good things about the new Zelda game and Mario Galaxy. I've played the latter and it was fun.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Perhaps people misunderstood what I emant in the begining. Wii is an amazing concept, but has not managed to use it's advantages to it's own advantage. If the graphics and line of games were stepped up I wouldn't be able to argue that there was a better system. I often find it hard to aim when running and gunning but witht he Wii all you need is a steady hand. Theres just quite a bit of room for improvement.

No one is denying that a 360/ps3 combined with a Wii would be a near perfect system, which is pretty much what you're saying.

I have played Wii at friends and it is a lot of fun. If I were to buy a system strictly for fun and games I would get a Wii. I have no interest in FPS that dominate the other consoles. Madden on Wii is a lot of fun.

That said, I was looking for a next gen DVD player and ended up buying a PS3. The only game I have for it is Madden but thanks to all the Buy One/Get One Blu-Ray deals I have a nice movie collection. And Netflix keeps things fresh. To do the same thing on an xBox 360 would be much more expensive. And I think that if either format wins it will be Blu-Ray.
