I still do not understand the fascination with this system. Anyone care to explain? Nintendo games have sucked since SNES. There were a few for N64 that were good, but overall, you have to be 8 in order to enjoy most of the games.

Wii is different than anything else on the market. Some of the games really work with the motion system, and some really don't. If you try to compare Wii to PS3 or XBOX360 it doesn't work because it doesn't do the same thing. Wii is great for some casual play with a group of people.

That said, UFC on Wii is going to be stupid.

I personally don't even think it's great for casual play with a group of people.

The graphics suck. The games are weak. To me, those are the first 2 things I look at when deciding on a system to purchase.

Granted, it all boils down to a matter of opinion, but I still say Nintendo jumped the shark years ago.

I played sega olympics (or summit?), mario kart and the boxing game on the Wii in a group environment. All of them sucked.

Maybe they should concern themselves with patching the MOTHER F-ING glitches and problems with the original release before they consider porting it to a new console.

I don't have the game (or an XBox/PS3 for that matter)...what are the glitches/problems?

IMO, I think the Wii is the most innovative thing for the gaming industry since CDRoms. A ncordless said, there are some games that the motion sensor works for and others that it doesn't. Like any game system out there, there are good and bad games. Graphics, sound, etc. are only part of the gaming experience and who cares about the elements of a game if one is entertained.

That being said, I don't think there is a single cross platform game that has been better on the Wii than other consoles. That's usually because those games are not designed with the Wii in mind, which usually results in game play that doesn't work with the Wii. When you mix that with the fact that the Wii cannot compete with the 360 or PS3 in the broad terms of graphics, it doesn't provide much incentive to play the game on the Wii.

I wouldn't mind it if they made the UFC game for PC.

That's what I'm talkin' about! I wouldn't have to buy an XBox if they'd do that.

Tiger woods 10 with the new motion control is nice. Its a huge step up from the regular motion controls. Also, House of the Dead Overkill is fun as hell. Its a light shooter with tons of gore and cursing, along the lines of Grindhouse. Yes, the graphics are lacking and most games are terrible but it is geared towards family and parties, rather than hardcore gaming.

UFC Undisputed is going to look terrible and choppy. I most likely will not purchase it.

I definitely can't agree with you on that. There were a lot of games for the N64 that were great (just in the order they come to mind):

Zelda: Ocarina of Time (and Majora's Mask)
GoldenEye
Perfect Dark
Diddy Kong Racing
Banjo Kazooie (and Tooie)
Super Smash Bros
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1, 2 & 3
Super Mario 64
Mario Party 1, 2 & 3
Mario Tennis
Paper Mario
Pokemon Stadium 1 & 2
etc

Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64 are still widely considered among the top 10 games ever.
