Hello my awesome readers!
Here is my advice for the week!
Over the years, I've played many great, and many terrible games. I've also had experience with different consoles. And my advice is to heavily review games before spending your hard earned money on them. When I was younger, I didn't have a PS3. What I had, and in fact still have was a Nintendo Wii. Now, I've had fun with some games on the Wii, but it doesn't have a huge selection of great games. The Zelda games are fairly good on it, but almost all of the Wii exclusive games suck, or are for much younger gamers. And even though it may be for the younger, or elderly in some cases, the control issues that come with the game usually ruin the experience. I can't stress how much I wanted Wii boxing to work well, and how long I tried to figure out how to make it work, but it's just something the Wii can't handle. This post is a warning against getting a Wii. It is best for younger kids, but even so, the games available for it are pretty poor handling. Though I did play a pretty good racing game, and Red Steel 2 is also a fairly controllable and fun game. I highly recommend the PS3, or Xbox 360 to more hardcore gammers. Both systems are great, though for a more economic choice, go with the PS3, because it gets free access to online play. Another point about the Wii, is when it gets titles that are also on PS3 and Xbox 360, such as COD, it is often a disappointment. The Wii version of COD is a stripped down version, and until Black ops and the use of the classic controller, all COD games on the Wii were a pain to control. You lose split screen, sometimes a level from the campaign, and even a few weapons and maps. I haven't tried MW3 on the Wii, so I don't know how well that one handles.
Ok, the Wii isn't all bad, there are some goodish games, like Zelda (As mentioned earlier), Red Steel 2, The Force Unleashed, New Super Mario, and Super Smash Bros Brawl. (and possibly a few others that I forgot)
It may be a good system to start with when you are younger, but in general I've started staying away from motion control gaming. It's not that it can't be fun, but I prefer a game that will work every time, and that's why I love the traditional controller that the PS systems and Xbox use. And I so wish I had a TV that would work with my Super Nintendo! :(
My opinion on the Wii may be slightly overly critical, but that comes from my personal experience with the Wii. Again, I'm not saying you can't have fun with it, but just be careful to know what you're looking for in a console.
Hope you enjoyed my post!
Keep being awesome!
