I was horribly offended by this. For about two seconds. And then I almost burst a blood vessel laughing.
The Wii controller really fun and cool--for about two seconds. All games must use the tilt sensor or else!
Compare Wii and the DS, both of which use "revolutionary" input methods:
1) The DS has a touch screen and wireless. This makes it easy to navigate complex screens and easier to connect to the internet. (Oooh, it's wireless!)
2) The Wii has motion sensing and wireless. This makes navigation awkward, and it's harder to connect to the internet. (Where do I plug in?)
And enough of their core franchise already! Mario Golf! Cooking Mario! World of Marcraft! Grand Theft Mario! No seriously, enough already. Somebody please rescue the Sonic franchise, OK?
(*whew* I've been wanting to say that to someone for weeks. I should pay you all for therapy.)
And in spite of all I just said, there are fun games for it, including some of those Nintendo franchise games I claim to hate.
Like the DS, as the game developers get over that whole "unique" thing and start making games, the "unique" controller setup does have possibilities. Now if only they'd figure out that there's this new thing called "wide format" TV...
