While I'm not a fan of Nintendo's focus on gimmicks and shovelware,
and as much as I strongly dislike most of their first party properties, I do
have a small measure of sympathy and support. The Playstation and XBox were
fun, but they're a little more limiting in scope, especially with the
ever-increasing focus on online play, accounts, and anti-piracy paranoia.I can't say I'll ever be much for typical "family"
staples like Mario Party, Mario Kart, or anything involving Miis, but despite
being a hardcore pro-Sony anti-Nintendo guy since the original Playstation, I
find myself now with a 3DS and no Vita. As I get married and ready to settle
down, I admit that a Wii U seems a lot more likely than its competitors on my
chest of drawers. What I wouldn't do for the likes of Pokémon Stadium
We got a WiiU just before Christmas. Me and my 3 daughters love it. The
platforming games like the New Super Mario Brothers and Rayman are awesome
single and multiplayer fun. When the kids go to sleep I can play Assassins
Creed on the game pad while my wife watches the Bachelor. We recently got Sonic
All Star racing and can't wait for Mario Kart 8. Plus it still plays our
old Wii games. The graphics on it are quite good, and coming from
the Wii its pretty shocking how big of a difference high def makes. My friend
with a 360 was pretty impressed at the level of detail in some of the games
which he alraeady owns such as Call of Duty Ghosts.
We got a wii u. We love it. My 6 year old is used to touch screens from phones
and tablets, so using it on the wii u is really natural to her. Plus I can play
grown up games like assassins creed and call of duty when the kids are asleep,
and on the game pad while my wife is watch figure skating.
