One of my friend thinks the wii is only good for 3-year-olds, another one is almost forcing me to get a 360, and they think me reserving and getting Bowser's Inside Story is the worst idea ever, saying I should b more excited for Halo 3 ODST. I try to convince them that the wii has plenty of hardcore titles, i still remain a wii fanboy, and Bowser's Inside Story is the game of the year. But, they ignore me. Anyone else been assaulted like this?

Meh another case of teenagers who try to be cool by being assholes (just a guess).
Be yourself and be happy for doing so.
For example I always liked Pokémon since Blue when i was a kid, i remember to hide it in my teenagers days in fear of other making fun of me, now as a adult, i dealed with it, i proudly say that i sill love playing it, and if someone mock my tastes they are just people who doesn't diserve my attention.
So in your case try awser them like "No thanks i'm actually secure of myself enough to play what i want without fearing others" or something like that.

Not many of my Friends are as interested in video games as I am and I'm not one to try and socialize with other (what I'd consider to be) normal people by talking about them unless they started to first. Because of this, I fortunately don't get insulted that much

Truth be told, most of my friends own Xbox 360 and PS3 systems, with only really two that own a Wii, and one of those is for his children. But they've never insulted me about it.

Those are very encouraging words, just beautiful. Just for that I won't care what people think of me when I start reading my Pokemon manga during class thanks MrPinguy.

I've never been insulted about it, really. Although some people at my school say the Wii is stupid. :P If they don't like the games or the Miis, then why not just download VC titles like I do? Okay, maybe I ended that on a bad note, but I still enjoyed Wii Sports and Brawl to a certain extent.

@Ryanknight717- Eh, Screw what everyone else thinks. Play what you want. Why are you so worried what they think (You worried they won't think you're cool)? Who cares as long as you enjoy playing it. It's just peer pressure. They're probably being influenced by peer pressure too. Be your own man, you don't need to follow the rest of the pack.
However if you really want to play Halo, there's nothing wrong with that either.

I like all sorts of games including the first Halo (only onr I've played, i think) AND the mario rpgs. If I had endless time and money I'd probably have all 3 consoles. Personally I think the wii is great. It has decent graphics, it's unique (at this time), and fun, plus they have some neat franchises that I like: mario, zelda, metroid, starfox, etc... :)

EDIT- Plus I think the wiimote and nunchuck are well suited for first person shooters. I think it's better in that respect than other console (at the moment) or even PC's.

EDIT 2- There are things I like about the 360 and ps3 too, by the way. (have only played a Store display ps3 though, I think. One of my brothers has a 360, I like playing Left 4 Dead with him.:)

On a relevant note, I grew up with both Nintendo and Sony. [Nintendo fans gasp in terror]
