Don’t ask as to why I’m talking about the Nintendo Wii so much lately, but after listing my favorite games I’ve played on the console, I’ve realized something interesting.
Kris and I play video games a lot. I’ll admit we didn’t play nearly as much as we do now that we have this blog. It was always a hobby we wished we were able to do more often, but work/school/life/whatever would always have to take priority.
In fact, part of the reason as to why we started Double Jump was because we wanted a valid excuse to play video games for a long time each day. (That’s not the only reason, of course, but you get what I mean.)
When I was looking at our collection of Wii games to make a list of my favorite ones, I realized we only have 28 games. A couple of them, I’ll admit, we haven’t even played yet. Once the Wii U came out we sort of dropped the Wii and rarely went back.
There are some games on our Wii console but most of it is virtual console so I wouldn’t count them as Wii games.
I know there are a lot of people out there who didn’t care too much for the Wii. Then there are people who hate the Wii U and realize the Wii wasn’t that bad. Some people hate motion controls, others love it. I never really minded the motion controls and thought the Wii was great… until they came out with the newer consoles, but I never thought the Wii was bad.
It surprised me to see we don’t have many games for the console and I kind of want to go to the game store and buy a bunch of Wii games now. I want to expand our Wii collection and also try out some new games as well.
Then again, if I did that, I probably still wouldn’t play them because the Switch has been taking priority over everything… maybe someday.
