PostPosted: Thu Jul 10, 2008 9:20 pm    Post subject:  Replacement Games  

WANT TO BUY:

Guitar Hero: On Tour
Fable 2
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts
Soul Calibur IV
Gears of War 2
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

I OWN (you'll see the genres match up):

Rock Band
Oblivion
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Call of Duty 4
Mass Effect



Just looking for opinions. I don't have enough money to keep all of these, and I'm not sure if I should just replace them all (and sell my Wii while I'm at it since the two Wii games up there are the only ones worth playing on the system) or keep any. Thanks in advance, and feel free to discuss/point out any others I've forgotten.

Most Wii games are for kids, casual gamers, or are terrible. I like Wii Sports, Brawl, Galaxy and Prime 3, and that's about it. Zelda sucked, unfortunately.

That is about to change. Hang with the wii. If you like FPS games than wii is where its at.

The Conduit (i want to say 16 person online)
http://wii.ign.com/dor/objects/14248157/the-conduit/videos/raptorignne.html

Call of Duty: World At War (16 person online)
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/35413.html

007 Quantum of Solace (believed to be 12 person online)
http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/07/quantum-of-sola.html

all wii FPS with multi-player online.

Medal of Honor: Afghanistan (32 person online)
its believed to be the next in the series, but not confirmed yet. If its like MoH: heroes 2 then its definitely worth the money.

A lot of people dont think the FPS games for the wii have good control or replay value, but the control system for the wii is great and online makes for almost infinite replay value.

Also as you said a lot of the games for the wii are aimed at children. The creators of The Conduit are planning to break away from that idea.

I did see the Conduit and that looks good, but all of the other games you mentioned can be owned on 360, which is what all my friends have.

I don't like new Mario Kart games, I've stuck with 64.

Which game on the Wii are you not a casual gamer at? I'm not seeing any.

Personally, I would suggest selling the Wii. You don't seem to have that much interest in it, especially if you say most of your friends are 360 players.

I only got my wii for brawl, plain and simple. I log wayyyy to many hours practicing for the next tourny or brawlfest in my area.

I do enjoy the FPS on the Wii, but quite frankly I'm just hairable at them.

That's just you being an asshole. If a game is enough fun I'll play it nonstop. Brawl was too much about the competition to be any fun for me.

It's in October for sure, but I don't remember what day.

You say casual gamer like its a bad thing, when you are a casual gamer. If you weren't a casual brawler, you wouldn't have said, "Brawl was too much about the competition to be any fun for me" because non casual gamers are all about the competition, which then brings fun. Not seeing the asshole part though, you must think I care enough about you that I would go from thread to thread to try and make you look bad, I don't.

Now you're just in denial. Rolling Eyes

There should be room for fun AND competition. Brawl wasn't fun for me. Simply an opinion.

Denial? Lol, yeah ok. And you act like a girl any time somebody calls you out on something.

And I would imagine Brawl isn't any fun for you, if you really won the tourny in your area, it doesn't say much for the skill in your area. Brawl is as fun as the people you play with. I personally have no fun when I'm destroying somebody, and I don't believe they have any either. But it doesn't matter what skill level there is if you throw items in, 4 people free for all.

If you're offended by me calling you a casual gamer; tough luck. I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true.

Just my opinion ofc, only mine seems to hold true when tested.

That was a joke sweetheart. You're taking this conversation way too seriously.

There's plenty of skill in my area. I played in the tourney after practicing nonstop for weeks, which was a waste of time and ended up being pointless.

And an opinion can't be tested, it's just an opinion. Your continuing in this ridiculous conversation is only backing up your own idea that you're going from thread to thread to make be look bad. Do us both a favor and don't even reply.

Your definition of skill? You didn't display anything near it online.

Only proves I like watching your verbal acrobatics.
