It's like talking to bricks.





If you don't think Nintendoland was an attempt to capture the same audience Wii Sports did, you're not paying attention.


Wii Party U is a game like Wii Sports. Most Wii Sports fans couldn't give two shits about Metroid or Zelda. Anyone can pick up and play Wii Sports while most Nintendoland games use the same tropes as 3D platformers and action games.


And the saying is "like talking to a brick wall." Also are you 13? Also the frigging game is worth twenty-one bucks new but you better love local multiplayer, so get your Jenga team together.

You're right, Gears of War and Halo have nothing in common. Nor are the Wii U tablet and Wii controller both unique controllers mandatory to new Nintendo systems that launched with hardware primarily designed for a casual userbase with mini-games intended to show off the unique functions of the system.


Excellent, valid points to make.


You're still not getting it are you.  I can set my parents down with Wii Sports and they can play it and have fun with no previous knowledge of video games or how to play them.  They just have to swing around like they are playing the sport.  You can't do that with Nintendoland.  Just because they both use their unique controllers doesn't mean they are the same.  Is Rock Band or any other game that includes a peripheral included in your list of comparable games?

It's pretty sad that a simple deal about a Wii U game has degenerated into a sh*tfest of arguments about whether Nintendoland is a similar style game to Wii Sports.  People, just drop the arguments and stick to the subject at hand: Nintendoland for $20.99, not a bad deal for people who bought the Wii U basic bundle and never bought this game.  Move on!
