Exclamation Consoles In General. (Speaking My Mind)

I have recently been reading different threads by my friends that I do in fact know in real life, Aota and Xenon. I have joined the forums to talk about one issue I may see as harmful to the future of different peoples perspectives on video games in general.

I do not intend to start a war, and am just here to talk about my opinion.

First of all, I have personally owned a 360, and have also played many different high ranking games on the Wii. My 360 failed considerably long ago due to RROD. (Red Ring Of Death for those who may not know, just search if you want info ). I myself decided to see which console I should buy after this happened, and naturally looked to the Wii, as I was a Nintendo Fan at the time.

I was rather disappointed with what I found with the Wii. I knew that it was a high selling platform, with many reasonably-fun games I myself I have played, but found that I was truly not immersed as I was in the gameplay of 360 then the Wii. I found myself leaning towards the PS3, to try something new, Even though I knew my friends already had the Wii System. Fortunately, I was amazed by what I found on buying the PS3, and found it was much easier to use then the 360 and the Wii console. I also found myself more engrossed in the gameplay of the PS3, even though I really do love the Wii. Its just what happens when you play Killzone 2.

Quote:
As a huge fan of the Wii, I’m really sick of being told that the console isn’t powerful enough for certain genres of videogaming. In particular, Xbox and PS3 fan-boys like to stick the boot in about not having a killer FPS on the system. This is pretty ironic, since they may have some good FPS titles, but a lot of their control systems (namely, dual analogue sticks) really do suck. Nothing on those consoles has even come close to emulating the accuracy of the Wii Remote and Nunchuck. - AlloftheAbove


This quote specifically is the most ignorant one I myself have seen in a long time on a forum. The Wii is a great system, and I have no regrets in saying that. A small majority of people that play on the Xbox 360 and the PS3 may say that the Wii is lacking a great FPS genre game, but this reason is not why I bought a PS3. The Xbox 360 and PS3 have plenty of different Genre Games that are comparable to FPS titles.

Saying that the Accuracy of a Wii controller is comparable to an FPS game on a different system however, is insane. It makes me sick to see something unfairly judged.

Quote:
Just a few thoughts..
I think that its actually hardly to aim using the Wii remote, especially if you've got a wobbly arm/hand. I also think this game is highly overrated by people giving it 90%+.

Sure, it's probably the best online FPS on the Wii, but you can't rate a game based on just the surrounded FPS's on Wii, you have to compare it to other games, and how good they are. And there are A LOT better FPS's than The Conduit. Examples?

Metroid Prime.
Half-Life 2
Bioshock
Call Of Duty 4
Team Fortress 2
Timesplitters
Killzone 2
Portal
Left 4 Dead
F.E.A.R
Doom 3
Resistance 2
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
Far Cry 2
Metroid Prime: Hunters


There's loads more, but I'll save 'em for later. Good Review though.
The only thing I am asking for people to do is have an Open mind towards every different console.
And to judge fairly.
I know personally that the Wii and the 360 are very fun systems, But I have found myself having more fun than I have in a long time.
What I want to show is peace for all of the different types of games. After all, we all are Gamerz. (The Z makes it cool.)

...Who are you?

EDIT: Anyway, that section of my Conduit review was just my way of connecting with the reader. I know that a lot of Wii owners are sick of Xbox 360 and PS3 fanboys always look down on the Wii when it comes to FPS games. That section was just me being proud that the Wii finally had another great FPS, comparable to those on other consoles. Though you have to admit that the Wii Remote+Nunchuck setup is great for FPS games, second only to the Mouse+Keyboard setup.

Can't we all just get along.. Every console has its pluses and minuses. Everyone has their own opinions on what they like and people should respect that. Even if you think they are wrong that is their choice to think otherwise. We are all Gamerz regardless of what console or PC you are playing games with. Just my .02.

Umm...okay?

Mind sharing your thoughts with the Xbox and PS3 crowd? Maybe it will get them off my back for buying the "crappy" console of this generation.

Ben? I don't remember you ever owning a Xbox 360, or ever liking the Wii.

lol, You havent been to my house in so long I guess. I had the 360 for about 6 months until it broke, I never used online on it because of the XBOX Live Membership Cards. And of course I like the Wii. It has Twilight Princess on it as well, and that is one of the best games I have played.

Muckbeast will become famous soon enough

If accuracy is what you want in a FPS, you need to be playing it on the PC.

A controller is garbage compared to keyboard and mouse.

Hi Ben! I knew it was you. AotA didn't believe me. He thought it was Kurt.

Anyway, I didn't know you owned a Wii.

I would've figured it out sooner or later from your MW2 sig!
