    How can Epic go "forward" if all they do is make retarded comments now a days?

    Epics New Strategy:
    Bad mouth every platform except the ones it wants to develop on to boost sales of said platform (and then its own games will benefit)

    Coming up soon, Epic bad mouths the PS3/360

    anyway, the Wii is also the first Nintendo console Ive owned, but the gamecube wasn't _terrible_ - but by the time i was interested in getting one it was past the point of having decent (fresh) games
    Although its yet another Zelda/Mario/Metriod etc game, who cares, at least Nintendo keeps them somewhat fresh, and a bit innovative

    It's funny that we don't hear Will Wright, Pete Molyneux, guys at Bethesda and Bioware and whoever behind Bioshock, saying such things.

    QFT.

    There's too much emphasis on graphics and not a lot on substance these days. If you get both, then you're on to a real winner.

    Let's just admit it, the Wii isn't for serious gamers, it's for kids who like waving a remote around.

    true, but if we look at it like that epic has even less reason to bash it, because then its not even a competition to the plattforms they are releasing games for due to different target audience.

    Its the marketing and the games that get released for it that make it kiddy and casual friendly, I mean if games like gear of war, ut3 and so on would be wii exclusive then pc/360/ps3 would be seen as the kiddy console and the wii as the serious gamers machine.

    It's also for people who just want to have some fun and don't give a crap about the concept of "serious gamer".

    Agreed. I mainly play on PC, but the rest of the family love the Wii. They are the target market, the casual gamers.
