I don't have much access to video games. I tend to focus more on computer games, which are just as much fun. I especialy like tycoon style games and RPGs. The more open ended, the better.

As far as I am aware (but I'm an old geezer - I reckon my son is older than you) we don't discriminate between console games and computer games in this thread. So many of them are multi-platform anyway...

So... Ultima IV, anyone? Pretty damn open. I can't even remember if the game had a point. I just stole forks and killed people.

So... we're not platformist? Good to know. It'd still be nice if I had Wii, those are awesome.

Not so much. Crappy games.

Brawl is awesome.

I have to agree. It's really just a system for very casual gamers, with the obvious exceptions of Brawl, Twilight Princess (which is better on GCN anyway, IMO), and a couple of others. If I had to do it over again, I'd have gotten a PS3 before a Wii.

No, I'm a Nintendo junkie through and through.

And you think I'm not? I got my first non-Nintendo system, a PS2, under a year ago. And I didn't buy it, someone gave it to me. I kind of think that Nintendo owes me better games. Which is why I'd go for the PS3. I'm unhappy with the Wii.

But, come to think of it, I had tonnes of fun with Mario Galaxy, and Super Paper Mario, and other exclusives...

Good girl, stay with nintendo. don't let the improved graphics of the other systems tempt you. we're pioneering in the field. Stay with motion detecting remotes and touch screens.

Oh, those Sony graphics have tempted me. I've always loved Nintendo, but if they want to keep me, they'd better gimme some bling. It takes more than a motion-sensing gimmick to keep me around. Which is why they need more good titles, and fast.

Call of Duty 4 or 5 or something looks interesting, with the Zapper. I wanna rent it.
