Wii Gots a Problem

I admit I was one of those who rushed to buy a Wii on day one, I never thought of getting a PS3 or other 'next gen' m/c. The idea of entering into a new level of man-machine integration was exciting.

Suffice to say, 2 years later, I am utterly disappointed to the point of selling the system at a loss. Only 5 games held my attention and those could have easily been ported to the DS (one of them was - Trauma Center). The rest of my gaming experience came in the form of destroying my childhood memories of great games from yesteryear. I kept paying Wii points to realize that I either evolved to a higher form, or that I was easily amused as a child.

Either way, a system that gets one good game every three months is reminiscent of the NEOGEO. I fear that the best days of consoledom have ended with the Dreamcast.
