Default Wii appreciation thread

Appreciation thread, remember that part of the title please.

Underrated like hell right now? I say yes.

Finally beaten Galaxy 100%

Wii is the best console to play FPS games on. Too bad there's like, three good FPS games on it. Can't wait for The Conduit though.

And then there's Super Mario Galaxy, I only have 29 stars on it.

I don't have much to compare it to but I like my Wii. It's definitely better than the other two consoles I own which are a NES and an Atari 2600.

The ones that are a real bitch to get are the prankster comets.

These are the hardest ones to get.

The cosmic Luigi races: The Mario ones are easy, but Luigi's are pretty hard.

Sling pod galaxy: This one is fustrating, Mario gets on these rubbery things called sling pods and you have to send him flying to another one, but it's very easy to miss and fall to your doom, too make matters worse you have to watch out for cannons and flamethrowers.

Purple coin stages: The toy time galaxy one may be the hardest, it's a doozy, you have to collect 100 purple coins in a time limit and all the platforms either disapear once you step on them or they tip over. The ghostly galaxy one is also hella hard.

Loopdeswoop galaxy: My god, this is the second manta ray racing stage and it's nearly impossible, the course is a monster, I must have fallen to my doom hundreds of times.

The daredevil run stages: Especially the melty molten galaxy, you have to go through the whole stage with one bar of health.

The NES is awesome man.

Probably has the greatest quantity of good games of any console.

Yeah, the prankster comet on the Beach Bowl Galaxy is incredbily hard, and I always seem to fall into the black hole on the prankster comet in the Space Junk Galaxy.

My best accomplishments in the game are probably Rocky Road and Bowser's Star Reactor thing, the latter caused me much grief, and the former I played many many times.

Ratatouille is such a killer game, even if it is for 5 year olds.

Classic, yes, but terribly quaint.

Yeah but it gets old after playing it for 20 years.

Technically yes.

But it's still my second favorite console after the Genesis.

Older games have the benefit of being much much harder than modern games, so as a result they last longer, and because newer games lack top scores they have less replay value.

Hah, that should be my next entry in the things that piss me off about video games thread.

Hey boo boo, what do you make of the new Wii games of '09? I'm talking The Conduit, Cursed Mountain, Sadness. I'm really curious about Sadness.
