There's no denying that Microsoft and son'y's few popular 1st party titles have good music, but halo, I didn't like. I enjoyed Halo 1's music, bu then it got crappy. I didn't even buy halo reach or halo 4 after being disappointed with it's earlier music. And it just got waaaay too repetitive. At least Nintendo has variety, and it'll sound good no matter what era it is.

Majora's Mask, FTW. Until they can make a game even as half as dark as that one, or as epic as OoT, I won't but a console for a new Zelda.

Plus, THE MUSIC IS THE BEST GAME MUSIC I HAVE EVER HEARD IN THE HISTORY OF EVER AND EVER! AND THEN SOME!


In my opinion Skyward Sword is the most epic Zelda game ever. The music was fantastic too. I was really surprised when I picked it up after going through my rage with Twilight Princess. But another dark or epic Zelda title would be awesome regardless.

Majora's Mask is the best Zelda as far as I'm concerned. It's dark, it's original, it's artsy and emotional. It's the only 3D Zelda since OoT that didn't feel like a retread of OoT.

And OoT isn't even the best Zelda. Every 3D Zelda since it came out is better than it IMO.

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

I'm going to be a Nintendo fanboy right now so forgive me(although I won't go nuts and insult the other consules like the usual Nintendo fans).

Wii U not a strong consule right now(mostly with its lack of games) but I do believe that it can come back from that deep hole and start building a tower. I also think that the console has the most interesting controller, I mean c'mon, you gotta admit that the controller is pretty unique in its special way.

But I'm mostly voting for the Wii U because of Zelda and Smash Bros.(and maybe the Mario 3D Land) After all, consoles were made for games.

It's unique, but that doesn't necessarily mean good. I've played some games with it and every single time it strikes me as more of a hassle than it's worth. Nintendo is simply trying to fix something that was never broken. I've yet to see games that justify the GamePad.

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

Blaming the console for what the games did? Wouldn't that be the game's fault not the console? And tell me what games did you play?

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.

And don't forget that was my opinion you were just arguing about so why would you try to change it? If everyone's were the same that would be boring.

Sorry to crash your party.

Um, yes, because they paid the devs to make it an exclusive.

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

You presented uniqueness as a positive.

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.

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

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.
