I bought a Wii with 22 games.
I thought it was a kiddy console!?

Almost every game is 18+ or banned!

It's actually identified as a family console, but good point there.

It is not despite what many people believe. Not that there would be anything wrong even if it was anyway.

This. A thousand times this.

Decent mature games exist on a Nintendo console predating the Switch! le gasp Who knew?

Currently playing: Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Kirby's Return to Dream Land (Wii)

Feel free to send me a Switch friend request, but please tell me first. Otherwise, I probably won't accept.

Gee that assortment of totally random games has mostly 16+ games by pure coincidence. How coincidental.

Anyway I don't think I ever heard anyone referring to the Wii as a kiddy console. It was always sold as a family thing.

Wii isn't a kiddy console. It's a kiddy & granny console.

@Anti-Matter have you played any of those games. Why are they rubbish. Is it gameplay or the graphics, are they glitchy. Why are they rubbish

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

Because kids like to waggle, and grannies are easily impressed.

I have to say, the only game I really like a lot amongst those is No more heroes 2. House of the dead overkill is very fun too, I enjoyed it back then but not a true masterpiece like No more heroes 2 is. I don't like the other ones at all honestly

@LuckyLand You don't like Resident Evil 4? It's one of the finest games I've ever played. Rarely do I play a game to completion 2 times but RE4 I've done so 4 times, once on GameCube and 3 times on Wii. Each time as enjoyable as the first. If it comes to Switch, I'll do so again.

It was impressive and innovative on Gamecube but I found enjoyable only the first part when you were in the village in the woods. I don't like Resident evil games in general. RE 4 was fun for a short while, but it quickly became meaningless and uninteresting for me. But the gameplay was actually rather fun anyway. I would have liked it more if it was shorter and with a better story and better characters.

Shout-out to Silent Hill: Shattered Memories for being the best of all those games, probably. No More Heroes comes pretty close tho.

I guess it's considered a "kiddy console" because most of the games were marketed to children and were just casual family games. The Wii didn't receive a dark first party game until late into it's life-cycle when Xenoblade Chronicles released.

The only games I remember playing on my Wii (and replaying them) were Mario Kart Wii, Super Mario 1&2, Super Paper Mario and probably some others I can't remember.

Those 22 18+ games you mentioned aren't really much compared to the xbox 360, and ps3's library of games. The Wii didn't get much 3rd party support, just mostly 1st party games, shovel ware, and a few exceptions.

Good... good
Now play Dragon Quest

I bought another bunch of Wii games for my family... we're almost at 50 Wii games, but still, nothing for children in there.

I thought it was a console for children... Should I buy a PS4?

Your threading a very fine line. You're getting awfully close to shovelware territory.
