1ADaviiiSat 20th Apr 2013 Hello everyone, You may not remember who I am, but I feel like I should say something. I have not bought a new game in a very long time and I do not plan on buying a new console anytime soon (if at all this generation). What I want this thread to be is something that allows you to see inside the head of someone who has left the gaming realm (for the most part). I wanted to share my view of why I have little to no interest in Wii U. The main reason at this point seems to be that I don't see what makes Wii U a must own console. That excitement I had for Wii (a motion sensing controller in the mainstream gaming world and such) is non-existent for Wii U. To this moment, I see nothing I can readily access that will cause me to buy Wii U. Something that really makes me feel like there is a desire for buying a whole new console just for what I see as a tablet controller with buttons. Something that's different, but looks fun and easy to jump in, learn, and play (difficult to master would be a plus lol). If there is something, I haven't seen or heard of anything about it. The last thing I saw on TV even slightly Wii U related has been a Wii U TV ad with awkward music and people play different games in different colored rooms a while ago. Another reason is that, from my point of view, the only kinds of games that are coming out are the games that take days, weeks, or even months to complete. The same kinds of borderline CGI films or shooting games seem to be coming out as these are the only games people I'm around on an offline still talk about. In my mind, why should I buy a new console, when I can already play these games on what I already have and cheaper? Again, if there are games out there that are different, I apologize. I just have not seen these games nor have I heard of them. Honestly, upon re-reading my post, I see my reason is focused heavily on originality and more simplicity regarding the game itself. Although I fear persecution for saying this, maybe this is why I do more gaming on my smartphone or tablet. Deep storylines don't happen, but I have come across quite a few easy to pick up and play original games that really tried something. Not all of the ideas were fleshed out, but for about 99 cents or 5 dollars, I have come across some great tries! I have no idea if this will help provide you with insight into the mind of someone who has no intention of buying Wii U as I see many people proposing a lot of theories as to why Wii U is not selling a lot at this point. I wanted to provide my insight to you all so I, someone in this very demographic, could help provide reasons. Be kind to yourself and to others.
