Comment on "Nintendo's Big Idea is Not the Wiimote"
by John O. — Oct 29
Excellent post. I agree whole-heartedly. I am very excited to own the Wii, and I think because of this short-and-sweet playability, it could possibly be my favorite console of all time. I've never been one to spend hours upon hours on an attempt to complete a quest -- well, besides Ocarina of Time. As for Wii, that one (and probably only) long drawn-out game I'll own, will of course be Twilight Princess.

There is no point in arguing that this system is "not built for epic games or RPG's". The fact of the matter is; it isn't built for epic games or RPG's. At the same time, I'm sure the kinks will all be worked out in no time, and that developers will indeed be able to program some highly enjoyable extensive games. It irks me when I read articles belittling the Wii, when the people belittling it aren't at all the demographic that Nintendo is trying to cater to.

I think Nintendo has it incredibly right this time. I can't wait.
