The Gamecube was cool, but it all went down hill after that.

On the contrary, not everything went downhill, the motion control on Skyward Sword, for example, actually led to it being given a 10 (with a 9 in music, but 10 in everything else) on ign.

Except for this one 8.8 (see tvtropes), it was highly praised.

Its gameplay is amazing because unless most games, you aren't limited to jabs, horizantal, and vertical slashes, you have left-to-right, right-to-left, topleft-to-bottomright . . .

It is expected that the next game will follow a similar scheme, taking advantage of the wiimote+nunchunk control still availible on the wii u.

Basically, skyward sword=awesome, and if they do as well with the next one, I will probably pick up a wii-u

I never said it was good or not, all I said was that it is unique.

You presented uniqueness as a positive.

Blaming the console for what the games did? Wouldn't that be the game's fault not the console?

Look, a console is only as good as the games it gets. You can't have theoretical amazing capabilities for a console if they never come to fruition. Just look at the Kinect. It's revolutionary stuff, unlike anything we've ever seen before - and the best we've done with it so far are dance games.

If the controls can't be implemented in a way that's interesting, then they were a bad idea to begin with. Simple as. Nintendo keeps making up new features just for the sake of novelty, but then the games just aren't there. Same story as the Wii. This is pointless gimmickry.

That made no sense. So if they're fixing something that was never broken that would mean that they're either making it better or adjusting something that was cool from the beginning.

No, that means they're needlessly screwing with things. Messing with controllers almost never means an improvement, but creating unneeded complication.

Take apart a TV that's already working and mess around with its components - tell me afterwards if you've "adjusted" it or made it unusable.

And don't forget that was my opinion you were just arguing about so why would you try to change it?

...have you ever heard of this new thing called a forum? Where you discuss things? We're kind of in one right now.

Besides, what good is an opinion if nobody can change it? That's not being opinionated, that's just being stubborn. You can't just hide behind a veil of "that's my opinion and you gotta respect it", that's a cop-out. Difference of opinion is good not for its own sake, but because it means people can convince you of other things, if you're sufficiently open-minded.
Through argument.
Which is what I was doing.

I hate to break it to you, son, but mainstream critics' scores aren't worth the pixels they're displayed on. Sites like GameSpot and IGN are as gutless and corporate as they come.

Mainstream videogame journalism is utter **** and you'd do well to ignore it, as well as the Metacritic nonsense that comes with it, and just have your own opinion. And find some niche websites and reliable critics.

I wish this thread had "vs PC" appended to it, because it's totally an option right now.

Consoles have the same parts, while PCs are way too varied. There are 4000 dollar death machines and humble 600 dollar laptops.

Wii U not a strong consule right now(mostly with its lack of games)

Also with its lack of power. The Wii U can contend with the current gen, but it's way behind on the next gen in terms of hardware. Not to mention its lack of third party support.

But it's still a platform. You can always compare consoles to PCs in terms of price to performance, or game library. They're absolutely viable discussions.

Sorry to crash your party.

Ok fine the Wii U has the most unique console based controller.

You presented uniqueness as a positive.

Yes and you also said it was unique, which is what I was basically doing. Like I said before, I never said that the controller was good, I mean c'mon everyone knows that the Wii U controller isn't the best but isn't necessarily the worst.

Besides, what good is an opinion if nobody can change it? That's not being opinionated, that's just being stubborn. You can't just hide behind a veil of "that's my opinion and you gotta respect it", that's a cop-out. Difference of opinion is good not for its own sake, but because it means people can convince you of other things, if you're sufficiently open-minded.

It was pretty obvious that my opinion wasn't going to change. Because I did throw in this little detail at the beginning:

I'm going to be a Nintendo fanboy right now so forgive me

That pretty much meant that I was going to vote for Nintendo and nothing else, no matter what you're going to bring up or say.

And the use of an opinion is to express about it. Not argue about opinions that will most likely never change. Besides how many times has your opinion changed? I bet its not even over 10.

Unless there was something wrong in my opinion, I don't necessarily see a reason to argue about it.

Not to mention its lack of third party support.

I never actually cared much about 3rd party to tell the truth. 1st party just always seemed so much better for some reason.

Yeah I guess you're right. Who needs Destiny, Battlefield, GTA, Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, Red Dead Redemption, The Division, Dark Souls, Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Mass Effect, Crysis, or Bioshock. They all suck compared to 1st party. 1st party is after all "so much better".

I mean c'mon everyone knows that the Wii U controller isn't the best but isn't necessarily the worst.

Would be the worst of the next-gen.

Everything you just said was completely retarded. I hope the sinks in your house have safety rails so you can use them without drowning.

The Vita says hi.

A game is a game is a game. If you only stick to Nintendo's limited first party variety, you've missed out on a lot. Nintendo is being sloppy not trying to reel in more 3rd party support, it shows too much close-mindedness for a console maker.
