RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Why is there a lack of proper games on the wii?

I'm talking about these sorts:

(Terrible grammar ftl)

It was nice that Nintendo decided to appeal to a wider demographic.
But now, I think they have gone over the edge.

There seems to be a lack of decent games on the Wii, and YET MORE OF THOSE BLOODY GAMES WHERE YOU LOOK AFTER ANIMALS.

Seriously. Cmon, Nintendo. Please think about the hardcore market that stuck with you through hard times.

LOL. PROTIP: The Wii wasn't designed for the hardcore gamers. It was designed for party games and younger children.

Re: Why is there a lack of proper games on the wii?

There's a Harvest Moon game for the Wii, and a second Harvest Moon game and an Animal Crossing game coming out this year. Those are all the games that are needed, right? =D

Re: Why is there a lack of proper games on the wii?

Because the wii wasn't meant as an actual gaming console. It was meant as a type of novelty toy.

Re: Why is there a lack of proper games on the wii?

It still comes under the type games console, and there are some decent harcore games out there.
Why can't Nintendo either designate it as a proper games console or a novelty toy, and not some mutant hybrid?

It's possible, but I think it is unatempted by most developers, and merely settle for the crap in my first post. The Wii could take gaming to a whole new level.

No, it's not possible. Ever tried to figure out how a game like Oblivion/Morrowind would work on the Wii? It won't. The Wii's stupid little novelty controller just does not work with real video games. It may have taken all those stupid party games to a new level, but it's not going to take real games anywhere.

Oblivion will work. Sure, it wouldn't use any of the Wii-Sensor stuff, because that's what Oblivion smiply isn't designed for.
SO THERE.

Well, no proper game at all would use any of the Wii-Sensor stuff, that's not what real video games are designed for. The Wii-Sensor stuff on it own is more of some party game nonsense. But then when we take that away, we have a system whose capabilities rival those of the PS1. The wii baisically begins and ends with it's little motion-sensing toy, and there's nothing else for third parties to be interested in.

real video games constutes something that you can actually play for more then one or two hours without realising that the game is only fun when you're drunk. Most wii games do not fall into this category

Re: Why is there a lack of proper games on the wii?

Maybe you guys are forgetting Smash Bros, Metal Slug, No More Heroes, Mario Galaxy, Medal of Honor: Heroes, THE VIRTUAL CONSOLE, and if I'm not mistaken, Dead Rising (!) is coming to the Wii also.

And don't forget Okami, Mario Kart, or Star Wars: Force Unleashed!

But yeah. I would really like to see some more games that aren't intended for young children.

At the rate of good games being released, we'll have played them to death before the next good one has been released. Then, when we have, we will have played that one to death too.

I hear new Zelda, Mario, and Pikmin game are being developed right now, so that'll be cool. Plus, Wii is getting a dedicated FPS coming out, and from the way it looked and what the developer said, it's going to be a fun game. It's got a bit of a Sci-Fi Fantasy thing going on though.

When did you hear this? 2006? Twilight Princess was already relesed and I've played it to death.

Re: Why is there a lack of proper games on the wii?

I was out shopping for a game for my sister's birthday, and all I could find that was on the Wii, something she would be interested in and not total crap was Geometry Wars.

Ended up getting her Sims 2 Freetime.

I am deeply disappointed in Nintendo right now. There were supposed to be kick-awesome games, and there are, but there's way too few.

Re: Why is there a lack of proper games on the wii?

Casual Games and gamers have ruined gaming.
I'd rather have my Nan uninterested in games (well, she only plays WiiSports) than have this casual crap exist. Nintendo did a major boo-boo.

ALSO, NO EARTHBOUND ON VIRTUAL CONSOLE.
