1eugenewrayburnSun 10th May 2009 Grade the Nintendo Wii - I hope we are not at the halfway point, it will likely have an extended life cycle guiven current and projected performance - but what the heck, here you go, give a letter grade to each of these 10 areas, A+ as highest, F- as lowest. (Probably be neatest to just put the grade by the number, not to repost the entire list time and again.)Thank you, perhaps this can be emailed to Nintendo customer service.1. Shows appropriate respect and deference to those who call themselves hardcore…2. Can be counted on to put a smile on my face, especially after a rough day at work, school, or idleness…3. Creates original games that feel fresh and fun4. Shows love and attention to long standing franchises5. Provides the software sales necessary to keep flagship console relevant to real world markets6. Maintains strong quality assurance standards7. Outlines vision in detail to help gamers decide where they want to place their chips8. Favorably balances game value with game price9. Enforces ‘hardcore’ gaming stereotypes, such as elicit sex, drug use, extreme violence, excessive cursing, and generally drab and cynical gaming environments.10. Makes the activist gamer feel welcome by embracing and perhaps even dictating media game biases, such as which features are ‘absolutely necessary’ for certain games, overemphasis placed on multimedia functions, providing antisocial online gaming communities for reclusive types, and promoting short lived graphical advances as the most important frontier for gaming. Hardcore, casual = marketing. The real divide is between arcade and narrative games.
