lol. The Wii U is going to be more hardcore focused. Mario party should stay and die with the Wii when it's released. I love Nintendo but I would personally boycott all Mario Party titles on the successor.
Whoa there, tough guy. Hostile much? I was just saying, I think Mario Party 9 is a better fit for the Wii than the Wii U, considering Nintendo is going for a wider audience with the new console than they've obtained with the current one.
And my opinion still stands. I firmly believe Mario Party is a worn-out franchise, maybe not sales-wise but otherwise. I refuse to buy them. I'll continue to play Super Mario, I'll continue to play Metroid, Kirby, and Zelda (loving Skyward Sword by the way).
But after nine Mario Parties, I'm all partied out. Fortune Street looks pretty cool though.
Mario Party has it's place with alot of people. I don't buy the MP games, but they are there, and belong a lot more rehashed shooters/zombie/flavor of the week. Personally, I'd like to see the variety that was available on the original Playstation back.
So, you sorta agree with me then. Why bother telling someone on Amazon to get over themselves? And I hear ya, there are too many shooters and zombie games... but just because I have high hopes for the Wii U, hardcore speaking, doesn't mean that's all I play.
There's this nasty perception going on with gaming lately--if you like the PS3/360, you're too ignorant to enjoy more casual fare, and if you like the Wii you play nothing but kid's games. It's a nasty perception that needs to end. Can't all gamers just get along?
That's where the ideas of the Wii U kicks in. That's what I was getting at before. I'm not arguing Mario Party has its place, I was just simply stating how I'm not part of that group.
And yet, while you admit YOU are not all that much part of the Mario Party market, you would advocate for doing away with it moving forward in Nintendo's systems, so that the games on Wii U are more limited to the hard core gamer?
While his reaction might've been a touch overkill, that's why he said get over yourself. It's a very me-centric position; you might not buy them, but plenty of others will. The Wii U might have more hardcore gaming involved, but it should also continue to be for those of us - with families especially - who really enjoy Mario Party and similar games. But fortunately, I highly doubt the Wii U is going to ignore the family-friendly market, since at this point the only other system really courting that market is a portion of the Kinect games.
Plus, not all of us can afford the kind of money Xbox w/Kinect costs. Traditionally Nintendo's systems are in a slightly lower price point, again making them affordable for families. Hopefully they won't abandon this behavior either. It's bad enough I can never afford new consoles until a year or two in, when they drop off their original price.
Me, I wish Wii would've delved more into inventory-puzzle based Adventure games (like Crystal Key, Black Dahlia and the Journeyman series), which have only ever been consistently made for PCs. I always thought the Wiimote system was ideal for that kind of interaction. But alas, those games never make enough money to keep them in production.
I don't see how my having an opinion, makes me at all "me-centric?" Other than that, thank you for making yet another argument that I've already heard. Next time, I'll know better than to give a negative opinion of a video game on amazon. I am SOOOO sorry.
You didn't offer an opinion, you said that something should cease to be because of your opinion of it - different entirely. Saying that a game shouldn't continue to be made, because you have no further interest in it, is "me-centric." For instance, I have zero interest in FPS games in general, never been my thing, yet I would never suggest that they shouldn't exist or there should be less of them just because I don't like them. Because there are a few billion people on this planet and I fully acknowledge that there's no reason the world should revolve around only my views of what's entertaining.
I presented rational reasons on why I believe Nintendo's consoles should continue to be as much for the family gamers as for the hard-core gamers, and I didn't get remotely nasty about it (I even said that Jake went a bit far with the "get over yourself" comment). But, if you can't take contrary opinions without acting "butt-hurt," maybe you should consider not being part of such discussions. Because if only one side is offering opinions it's not a discussion, it's a lecture.
