Uly was born and raised a loyal nintendo boy. NES... SNES... N64... Gamecube. I had a game boy, game boy color, game boy advance. I also had an xbox and playstation 2.
That last part must be where I went wrong. Because nintendo stabbed me in the back. They stabbed so many of us loyal nintenboys RIGHT IN THE BACK!!
Look at our new console, they said. You're gonna wave this stick around to play games. Motion control! Now you too can stand in your living room waving this wand around like a retard. You won't be playing any video games where anyone can see you from now on, that's for sure.
Oh, and look... we put like 2 buttons on it. Today's controllers are much too complex for anyone under 12 or over 50... WHO WE'RE PANDERING TO, NOW! EVERY GAME WE MAKE WILL BE MADE WITH CHILDREN AND THEIR GRANDPARENTS IN MIND!!
It was then that I knew how those kids feel, when the pedophile they thought they loved tell them "you're too old now". Nintendo shooed me out the door. "We don't want your kind anymore."
How do you feel about it?

It's an okay console I guess.
Main issue with it is that as you said, most games are for the "easy-going, casual, simplistic" gamers. Usually, kids, grandparents, family fun stuff.
But as for the remote you can always use the "classic controller" and for when you can't it's usually not that horrible.
Plus the games on the Wii VC are alot cheaper than on PSN and XBLA usually. Even if it is mostly just Nintendo games, it's a pretty solid deal.

The Wii's an alright console, but it's nothing special. I like some of the games that are on it, though. Compared to the likes of the Gamecube, SNES, and N64, the Wii's the weakest console from Nintendo due to the game library being nothing but casual titles. :/

The reason it's got so many casual games is because of the flood of shovelware, with developers trying to cash in on the motion control craze.
It's unfortunate, really. Nintendo, as well as many other companies offer great hardcore games and whatnot.
Of course, Nintendo's ship is sinking in a sea of shovelware.
kickin' it on the world wide web
