Those games are all on different systems. There are 42 games on Wii with a score of 75+ on Megacritic. 164 games on the 360 have a 75 or higher score.

360 has a better selection of Online titles I'd say, and alot of people I know complained of heavy lag on the Wii online(at least when Brawl first came out. Never bought it personally, doesn't live up to Melee). Never had a problem with lag on Mario Kart though, but I've only played that elsewhere.

Anyways, the Wii is good, but the fact is, 3rd party for it is pathetic. Nintendo is the easily the best first party developer, and one of the best developers period for games, but that doesn't mean everything. 360 still has a better library overall, and better Online play.

Also, if you think the Halo and Gears are overrated, you either: 1. Suck at them, or 2. Don't have a 360 to play them on
Halo is a pos for competitive gaming, which is what the major audience of the 360 is, especially the shooter library. TF2 and COD4 are SO much better. The game is terribly imbalanced, and some TERRIBLE maps ruin the multiplayer in comparison to other games. I'd go as far as to say Snowbound is the worst map in any FPS I've ever played. Anyways, yeah, the Halo games are all overrated personally. And no, I don't suck at them, but if it eases the burn of the truth about the series, assume it. COD4 is the better console FPS, and CS will always be the better FPS.

Gears I don't have a problem with.

I resent that, considering that you've just insulted us competitive players in SSB as well as the entire engineering department of the University of Toronto. Just because a fighting game with just as much depth, or even more depth, than any FPS on the market, doesn't mean it's for little kids.

In any case, genre preference has NOTHING to do with age. I'm OLDER than you. I don't like FPS games outside of Golden Eye. I love RPG games. I'm into puzzle games and rhythm-based games like Tetris attack and Rock band. I love strategy games, etc. The point here is that your belief is, under these circumstances, utterly false. I see 8 year olds asking their moms if they could buy GTAIV for goodness sake (and I don't like GTA either). At the same time, did you even look at awesome games like Patapon? Or did its 'cutsey' graphics lead you to your attitude that infuriates me so?

Online mode sucking is known and I agree with you on that. :3

Madden 2008 ()
DragonBall Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 ()
Okami ( :| ) PS2 is no longer a console.

Also, Madworld and The Conduit (to my knowledge) haven't even been released yet, so how can Charbok claim that they contribute to The Wii's awesome library?

EDIT: Or Disaster...or Wii Music
Lol, that's three games buddy, one which is pure fail regardless what console, and is only included because he has a preference for that game.

How come PS2 isn't a console anymore? And why are handheld's out of it now?

One could say the same of you, considering the defensive stance you're taking toward one's opinion.

You never know, that may very well be their sincere opinion toward such mainstream games.

Quote:
When a game gets a 9+ on most trusted game sites, I think you should lay off calling it overrated, because that just shows how good your taste in games is.
You're telling us that our opinions should solely lie within trusted game sites, when not all of us agree with their reviews? Besides, "one man's trash is one man's treasure", which can apply in reverse for this case. After all, their reviews aren't to be taken literally, or else it would ruin the basis in which humanity shines the brightest.

This applies to me, since first-person shooters aren't my forte. Of course, I enjoyed Gears of War, for the amount I played.

It seems you're confusing fact from opinion once more? From what I can tell, from what you, ironically, and others have pointed out the Wii has more variety than the other two next-generation consoles? Of course, if you're willing to prove me (and others) wrong then be my guest.

The Wii took a step into the game that makes it money, but upsets most of the people who expect really good games.
Like I've said out before, it varies

It would help if you define what mature games are, for people take maturity from different perspectives.

I would like to know how games like SSBB are geared toward younger auidences when so many adults play it, or by younger you are referring to young adults such as ourselves?

Of course, if you were to use ESRB ratings for guidance then Super Smash Bros Brawl is for audiences 13 years-of-age and older.

[/insane quotations]

You know games are still being made for the PS2, right, Lan? With that, how does PS2 fail to be a console when that and every other aspect of the system qualifies it to be a previous generation console?

Also, Charbok, it would help if you differentiated the current Wii library from future games?

And finally, Kenny is my hero!

Now to state what game I think is most overrated: Guitar Hero.

Stop dissing Guitar Hero. :P

All the hype is deserving; it's a game that, although not fun for most people who can't do it properly, was the first of gaming to do anything like that. Having a remote guitar to play songs is very original and has never been done before; so of course there will be hype for an original idea.

That said, I think that Brawl is a little overrated. Yay, Super Smash! Oh, Lucario! ... That's about it. There really isn't much different from the original Super Smash Bro., so it didn't really need a sequel.

Seriously? Show me?

Yeah, I know ratings are opinions, but they're popular opinion. I don't see Jenga for the Wii getting any perfect scores, and I doubt it will ever. When I talk variety, I'm talking quality variety.

By the way, I think when Scott said he preferred mature games, he was talking about games rated M. We played Gears of War together once. :]

Well I don't know about you, but us competitive players were in complete turmoil because Brawl was so different from Melee...

HiF: But Boom Blox is awesome. D:

Besides that point. I've said this a million times, and I'll say it again. Nintendo is more successful than both Sony and Microsoft combined in this generation not because they're "targeting little kids", but rather they're expanding the market to the casual gaming audience. By expanding to this market, we're getting "fresh blood" for the more mature genre-oriented systems such as the Xbox and PS3 to be able to survive.

as for why there are a ton of crappy wii games around, it's simply because the companies are all trying to make a quick buck off the "fad". Now that the wii is a fixture in the spotlight for well over a year, I think the companies are going to pick up their slack, and put enough effort to rival the PS2's crappy titles (which is better than the current crappy wii titles).

This comes to the point of "quality variety". First of all, that's subjective as a whole. Second of all, "quality variety" of course would be from established genres, which Sony and Microsoft should be getting games of. But do remember that there is no innovation from Sony and Microsoft. New genres, should they be born, will be from the wii. So while I agree with your statement, I don't agree with your dismissal of the wii because of it.

Guitar Freaks were just a series of games that had drum sets and guitars that played songs developed by the game company. Not those actually taken from artists and able to be played by the person playing the game. Alas, this makes Guitar Hero unique. :o

Lol, Ice Climber... x]

I'd agree that Brawl is overrated. Just prettied up Melee graphics, slowed it down, and got rid of everything technical that made the game live as long as it has.

That, and I find its lack of Doc disturbing.

I think guitar hero is SOOOO overrated. Rock Band is way better. You can get DRUMS with it. And the guitar is more realistic than Guitar hero.
