    I think 'best selling' is an odd category to win.

    'Most played' would probably be Tetris or something.

    Still Nintendo should be commended for their ability to hoodwink most of the population of the world into thinking the Wii is a good games machine.

    You know how some people have other people's quotes as their sigs? This is the first time I've actually wanted to do that.

    Further proof that the Big N has lost the appeal of the hardcore gamer crowd. Nice going, Nintendo. :mad

    It is a good game machine. It just has truckloads of terrible software.

    Why should Nintendo give a fuck? They're rolling in it thanks to losing that appeal.

    How is that fair? I mean how many people actually wanted Wii sports with their Wii? Most people didn't have a choice in the matter...

    Heh, yeah, I cant stand when I go guy to a guy's place, they have this neat Wii system around their kickass TV setup and all they got is Wii Sports, then they reply that the game is good enough.

    That doesn't change the fact that just because it's a game that's free with a top selling system doesn't mean its a top selling game.

    They shouldn't, and I applaud them, but my respect they have lost long long ago.

    Does my respect mean shit to Nintendo... not in the least, but I no longer look at Nintendo as the leader they were. Roll in the money till your skin turns green, but almost every honeymoon ends, and I have spoken to many a people who have sold their system after the initial "YES, I GOT ONE" wore out and reality set in.

    That's what pisses me off. Nintendo should give a damn about all of its gamers, not just going for one crowd.

    I never said it wasn't fun just if the Wii system didn't come with Wii sports would it still be the top selling game?

    Nintendo seems to be under the impression that the Virtual Console is all they have to give to their hardcore fans. Baww Baww no good games, Sin and Punishment, yayy Nintendo loves us.

    I still call BS on that because it has come with every Wii here. Remember the NES did not launch with SMB, it came with Rob and games for him. There was also the NES that sold with no games.

    Well, IMHO, the Virtual Console games are only keeping the hardcore gamers fed so Nintendo won't have to deal with their complaints. Sorry, Nintendo, but that's not gonna work on me. I mean, I am glad that they're bringing a new audience into their games; that's a good thing. But, they need to keep all sides of the gaming community happy, not just focus on one side.

    I've lost all faith in Nintendo. Wait a sec, I already did, about six months ago at E3. *Facepalm*
