Why the Wii kinda sucks . . .

The reason is: the library sucks.  The Wii has a reputation among the critics of being home to an unusual amount of shovelware (low-budget, low-effort shit shoveled out to take advantage of dumb kids and parents) and I believe this reputation is well-deserved.  Of course, a good system is going to have lots of shovelware but it will also have tons of classics to make up for it.  HERE ARE THE WII-EXCLUSIVE CLASSICS . . .

Mario Kart Wii
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles
Super Mario Galaxy
Wii Sports
Zack & Wiki: Quest For Barbaro’s Treasure

plus a short downloadable game: Lostwinds

And that’s it.

There are definitely many other good games for the system but they’re all available in either near-identical versions on PS2 or superior versions on PS3/X360. For instance, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Resident Evil 4 are both available for GameCube.  Bully and Okami are available for PS2.  I really can’t recommend purchasing a Wii over an Xbox 360 unless you have a major hard-on for Nintendo (like I do).
