Yeah the term 'HARDCORE' has been construed and abused over the last 10 years because I consider myself to be true hardcore in the sense that I have owned just about every system from Atari all the way to now and enjoy all types of games from point n click text adventures all the way up to shooters so there is pretty much a broad spectrum we are dealing with when considering the definition of said term. Gamers that just play FPS are definitely not hardcore in my big book of bullcrap (brain) ;)

It's even funnier that 4 of the all time best-selling Xbox 360 games are Call of Duty titles.

I completely agree with this. The Wii is my favourite console yet there are so many ignorant people who say that the Wii is crap for core gamers and only good for casual games when there are various videos on youtube like the one you posted that showcase the mass of awesome games that the Wii has.

True that. :D

Compare the meta critic lists of Wii games >80 compared to the 360/PS3 lists >80.

It's sad. You can make all the excuses in the world as to why Wii games are reviewed so poorly, but at the end of the day that's the most unbiased cohesive comparison and the wii does not fair well.

Just listing the amount of high quality, third party games the wii missed out on is depressing.

Come on now...we all know that the Wii didn't have a huge catalogue of games that were rated highly and well received by critics and gamers, alike

But we also know, that the few good games, we're bloody great games...

Its that simple, isn't it?

Just because a game isn't highly rated, doesn't always mean it can't be a good game.

I don't disagree with that point...because, personally, I enjoy Mad Dog McCree Gunslinger. But that doesn't make it a good game, compared to Time Crisis

The reason people call Wii bad is because they think it's for babies, which angers me a lot, seeing as there's plenty of stuff for the hardcore crowd to enjoy on Wii (Resi 4, Mega Man 9 & 10, Madworld, HOTD:Overkill). What we need is a HARDCORE game that EVERYBODY KNOWS ABOUT Mega Man 9 & 10 were download games. Resi 4 wasn't an exclusive. Madworld and HOTD barely sold anything. We need a popular, console exclusive, hardcore game on Wii.

NOW

I can confirm that a lot of hardcore gamers knew about it but ignored it and then complained about the lack of mature games on Wii anyway.

[/div]

So why are both HOTD: Overkill and RE4 considered hardcore? because there's blood and zombies in them? lol Where's the mention of Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Zelda Skyward Sword,Wario Land Shake it, Zack & Wiki, Paper Mario, SSB Brawl, NSMBWii, Kirby's Epic Yarn, DKCR, A boy & his Bob, Klonoa ect ect? These are all technicaly brilliant games, but they're not considered 'hardcore' to many gamers because they aren't dark, there aren't blazing with guns, no goopy blood and guts to be seen, ect ect My perception on 'hardcore' is a lot different than what kids think of it as today.

Anyways, the people complaining that the wii is for Babies 'are' babies. I always thought stuff like Call of Duty and Gears of War were for babies while Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man and the like were for the Golden Age gamers of the past who experienced it all from the beginning. Brilliant level design and platforming that's simply put unmatched. II hate to use the word 'hardcore' because like Wariowoods pointed out in another thread/article Nintendo is a TOY company, videogames are toys plain and simple and the word 'hardcore' sounds like crap being spewed out buy some 'trying to be macho' 10 year old.

Mario, Zelda, Metroid and many other nintendo franchises are legandary, they started it all basically, so to call these franchises not hardcore makes these certain people look like uninformed clueless kiddies. It seems like most of the NES/SNES gamers appreciate the Wii much more than the N64/GCN/PS2/XBOX era gamers. The VC obviously plays a large role as well, and of course the RetroRebIrth. B-)

I've found too many good games on the Wii to count, can't say the same for the N64(especially) and GCN.

i find it funny that people label the likes of mario, kirby as kiddie games by many gamers during this generation when they came out during the 80s and 90s when many of us were kids, teens and we weren't bothered by them one bit. the wii does have some awful shovelware but to say it has no playable or interesting games is completely false.

there are lots of hidden gems for the wii- you just have to delve deeper to find them: examples include sin and punishment, madworld, monster hunter tri, okami, tatsunoko vs capcom to name but many.

The Wii had fantastic first-party support but few big name third-party games that the other two consoles got. Instead, it got it's own share of third-party support that produced some fine, albiet, sometimes overlooked gems.
