Although the Wii U has surpassed the Nintendo Wii technologically, the selection of games the older console has should not be overlooked. Many dedicated gamers shrugged off the Wii as a system for young or casual gamers; however, with exceptional franchises like Zelda and Metroid, the Wii can provide a gaming experience as difficult or intense as any other console. For example, “Super Smash Bros. Brawl” gives gamers one of the most competitive gaming experiences ever conceived.
Additionally, the Nintendo Wii offers a diverse third-party lineup of games suitable for any type of gamer from practically every age group. Those looking for a unique experience should check out games like “Okami,” “Rayman Raving Rabbids” and “Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure.” Families and young gamers will enjoy the movie-licensed Lego games, and RPG fans will get lost in the epic stories of “Xenoblade Chronicles” and “The Last Story.” The Nintendo Wii also has a full range of sports and action games as well as hundreds of classic games available for download via the console itself.
The Nintendo Wii is cheaper than ever now that the Wii U has been released, and the system is a great choice for those who want a fun gaming experience on a budget.
