Say whatever you want; I'll be enjoying Twilight Princess, Corruption, Galaxy and Brawl in the meantime.

I agree that some games are significantly underrated or overrated, but sales still speak very strongly. A game will be produced when people will buy it. People will buy it when it appeals to them. I'm not saying that you should be part of the "average consumers," but obviously Madden is selling because people like playing it, and that's the whole goal of video games, isn't it? Nintendo is selling because people like playing the Wii, even if you don't.

Regardless how much you think of sales, I remind you that Nintendo has made $3,594,000,000 over the past three years, while Sony has lost $1,300,000,000 and Microsoft even more at $3,526,000,000. (source) There is a clear winner at the moment, whether you want to accept it or not, whether you like their games or not.

all that shit about sales? null and void. wii selling 10 million doesn't make it have better games than MS. see here is where ninty fanboys and gamers differ: gamers care aboug games. ninty fanboys only care about sales. they're always happy as long as Reggie keeps getting ferraris and yachts. :lol:

and don't even start with "bu bu third parties will come when they see teh sales!1" ninty fanboys have been saying that ever since the wii started selling well. and what's happening now? Devs are putting their real games on next gen consoles and tossing the wii aside like the garbage it is. example: soul calibur IV is coming out on the ps3/360, but wii gets a filthy spinoff, soul calibur legends. EA is making Army of Two, Crysis, and skate for ps3/360/PC. for the wii they're making/made Boogie and a watered down version of the sims. Steven Spielberg is making a high production value, ico-like experience for the ps3/360, but for the wii, he's making a game about FUCKING BLOCKS.


If you ask me, you both have GREAT arguements. Yes Ed, Sales do speak! And quite loudly if you ask me. 53+ Million Dollar (USD) profits each quarter for the last 3 fiscal years shows that Nintendo has the ability to consistently deliver a popular, viable product every time. However, as Lachance has pointed out, Microsoft (with its Xbox 360 line of products) and Sony (with their PS3 line of products) has the "ties" to famous product manufacturers and famous persons to come out with a plethora of diverse products. But, Nintendo doesn't want to just keep going back to the same products every time, because doing that might cause their customers to label these lines as "one-liners" and become disinterested with their line of products, leading to downfall. However, Microsoft and Sony really need to catch up with the raging popularity of the Nintendo lines of products, or else they'll go bankrupt and cease to exist in the gaming markets altogether.

And Lachance, I ALSO THINK that you REALLY need to unharsh your cool, dude! This is a FRIENDLY FORUM, so let's please keep it that way!

As long as there's no flaming (which there thankfully hasn't been), it's just a healthy debate. :wink: Let's keep it THAT way.

Ah yes, the mind of a closed-minded child. All who defend a system and/or remotely enjoy it are fanboy/fangirl slaves to the company that makes said system or games.

As for sales not meaning anything... Over a longer period of time than the short timespan Madden leads sales? Yes, it does mean something.

If ANYONE was being a fanboy/fangirl in this topic, it was YOU Luchien. If not, an anti-fan, which basically equates to a troll.

Here, I'm about to absolutely OBLITERATE this thread by posting what I did on GameFAQS (though keep in mind the argument could be made that I bashed the 360 by calling it the Fragilebox, but let's face it: Ring of death +being easier to break than the self-esteem of a little leaguer who plays BACKUP right field = fragilebox:

"I've never seen the point in bashing a system. I know one particular guy who frequents this board (who has yet to make his presence known in this topic) who constantly rips on it, and I just sit and wonder "why? What's the point?"

It was like this with the gamecube, and the dreamcast, etc. if you don't like it, fine. DON'T ****ING BUY THE DAMN THING. Seeing Sony, Nintendo, MS, etc. fanboys/fangirls is almost as sickening as those ****ing pink-hatting Boston fangirls.

I have an N64, a PS2, an XBox, a Gamecube, a Wii, hell even a DS and a PSP. I love them. I still play yu-gi-oh on the PS2, Pokemon Snap on the N64, and also have a crossword puzzle game for the PSP, and a bit of a child-sized mystery in Trace Memory. Why? Because they're fun. Plain and simple. I'm not asking for OMG OUT OF THIS WORLD graphics (which IMO a lot of times are overrated), I just want a fun gaming experience. The Wii is ~$250 for the system, a wiimote, a nunchuk, and Wii Sports. The XBox 360... I don't even know how much it is, I just know I've had a few classmates disappointed in how fragile it is. Meh, whatever. I'll get one eventually. PS3 is SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS. I don't care if you're capable of bringing around the greatest graphics known to man. You're not going to sell a 600-dollar console and compete with a system selling for 250. Just not gonna happen.

Someone mentioned getting "value for your buck." Of course that was the resident troll here, but still. going right down to it, the Wii has the better value of any of the 3 systems, simply due to its low cost and all that you get out of it. Someday I probably will get a PS3, but Sony has to pull their heads out of their asses and SUBSTANTIALLY drop the price. I mean, drop it many many dollars. 360... Again, someday. I'm in college. Not really much I can do on the gaming front."

/end rant."

And that, my fellow Legends fans, shall be the end of this topic. I am the self-declared winner, and because I'm what, a Purple Parrot now? You should give me the same sympathy as the aforementioned little leaguer and let me have my moment uncontested :(

PS: I play my N64 and PS2 more than anything. Last-gen gaming FTL? Hell no. Fun, stimulating gameplay, IMO, as I said in the post, beats the holy bajeezus out of out of this world graphics any day of the week. And I will take Perfect Dark's multiplayer against SIMULATED OPPONENTS (forget inferior humans) against any multiplayer game you own, and that INCLUDES Halo 1, 2, and the upcoming 3rd one.

I'll take Final Fantasy Tactics (PS1, not the crappy GBA or the upcoming PSP versions) over any of the later-gen games.

And I will for DAMN SURE break out Kickle Cubicle and COLUMNS while you play with your fancy shmancy graphics, and while I have fun challenging myself with awesome puzzles...

YOU WILL HAVE NONE OF THAT AND LIKE IT!

Yes, forced 7:42 humor with 0 hours of sleep but boy did that feel good to get off my chest

I truly think that there is no one system better than another. they all have their pluses and minuses. and dont forget, everyone has a different taste of games, which makes them like different consoles.

why does this forum not have strikeout tags? this wall of text deserves to be crossed out.

also, video game discussion without console bashing is boring.

It's also a cheap method of discussion when you don't have enough evidence to support one thing, resulting in just bashing the other(s).

You just lost validity there.

Oh, and Lucien, no telling people to suck anyone's anything.  'Tis flaming in my book.

...besides, sucking Miyamoto's cock is like a .6-second job.
