I love it when people say that 3rd party titled arent doing well on the WIiU.
Two problems with that:
1) Most 3rd party titles where rereleases of games that where already on the two other consoles. Just a handful of people are willing to buy a game twice, no matter the enhancements. And speaking of enhancments, most of them were worse because of a lazy, quick port job.
2) If it isnt a game that was already on other systems a couple of months / years ago, its most often deliberatly crippled compared to other versions. Be it missing modes, no online play or missing further DLC support.

If the different versions where the same, the WiiU would automaticly make them better through things like off-TV play and such. But if devs keep on deliberatly crippling WiiU releases in comparison, there is no way that WiiU sales can catch up.

It's because they target Xbox 360 and PS3, then just try to get the game onto Wii U, as-is.

I know Assassin's Creed, Batman, NFS, etc. had some extra work put into them, but games would be entirely different if they didn't even make games for 7th gen anymore.

Maybe once Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U are the most relevant platforms, THEN the Wii U will start having better games. Even PS4 and Xbox One are suffering from 7th to 8th gen ports. Watch_Dogs, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin's Creed 4, Battlefield 4, etc. wouldn't exist without last gen, but entirely different games would be released if they weren't cross-gen games. Even Destiny is technically 7th gen.
All those games are still built with 7th gen in mind.

I'd say the last game available on both generations of platforms will be the true starting point for 8th of gaming.

While 3rd party could fall hard, the rare times that a same day(or same day-ish) port comes out and isn't a Deus Ex nightmare scenario (though to be fair I've not exactly heard about it flying off store selves anywhere else...), it seems to at least fit the average of games sold out of consoles sold. Like 10,000 out of 300,000 apparently for the Wii U version of Splinter Cell is awful but it does fit the current number of units sold shockingly well. Like maybe exactly the same considering the insane amount more consoles sold for...well...the other consoles it is on. That at least gives me some hope, unlike much of my favorite games on the Wii which sadly were lucky to get more than a quarter of a million even when it was selling everywhere to everyone possible. (No More Heroes was considered the breakout of the real hardcore games (somehow De Blob doesn't count?) and it was still niche and only considered a success because Suda 51's games beforehand were even LESS popular, which again is sad, especially if Killer 7 is anywhere near as awesome as I've heard)

Oh, I didn't know opinions could be wrong.

I don't have time for that, man. That's great for the people who do like to do that sort of thing, but it just bores the crap out of me.

Well, when you start whining about how the game wasn't linear enough and compare one of the (arguably) best comic book video games to one of the worst... You just don't know what you're talking about.

PS: If you're getting bored of jumping from one rooftop to the next, I suggest you land on a random rooftop and beat some dude's up. The game oftentimes makes it harder than just landing and roughing them up (which you can still do if you find the right rooftop) which makes it all the more interesting. Plus you level up when you beat guys up so it's actually recommended that you do that.

If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm probably not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

Yeah, I did beat people up. Look, it's just not my kind of game, okay? If you enjoy it, then that's great. But the game is just not for me. That's all I'm saying. I'm not into the whole open world, spend forever just exploring, etc. I would much rather play Batman on the NES. But that is just MY opinion and by no means am I trying to convince anyone else that they should feel the same way as I do.

Then don't waste your time playing open world games. In fact, maybe you shouldn't be wasting your time playing video games at all if you don't have time to have fun with them. Because seriously dude, I told ya how to have fun with it, yet you insist on playing the game like an NES platformer. You don't have to do that. You don't have to play the story missions if you don't find them fun. There are plenty of other things to do in it. That's why they're nicknamed sandbox games. If you don't want to explore and find secrets, beat up bad guys, get new stuff to battle with, etc. Then yeah, I guess you could say it's not your thing, but I'm not exactly sure why you would by an open world game if you have no intention of doing any of those things.

I mean for Godsakes, you bought a game called Arkham City and you honestly thought you wouldn't be running around a city all the time? Do some research before you waste your money man. Otherwise I got a bridge to sell ya.
