Target Demographic
So, I now own all 3 of the current generation consoles (thanks to Dell's deal last week). This gives me the freedom to play the best games that come out without regard for platform elitism or other such nonsense. So, I went to go shopping a bit to find a respectable set of games to start my collection. What I've found so far has been, at best, depressing. I've heard people complaining about how there are no gamer's games for the Wii. A quick study of what I've purchased for each system seems to render this calculus somewhat suspect:

  1. Twilight Princess
  2. Wii Play
  3. Super Paper Mario
  4. Metroid Prime 3
  5. Resident Evil: UC
  6. Super Mario Galaxy
  7. Okami
  8. Super Smash Bros: Brawl
  9. No More Heroes

  1. Metal Gear Solid 4
  2. Devil May Cry 4
  3. Heavenly Sword
  4. Ninja Gaiden Sigma

  1. Dead Rising
  2. Perfect Dark Zero
  3. Eternal Sonata
  4. Kameo

Now, one can argue that some of these games aren't perfect (I probably wouldn't buy RE: UC again at the price I paid, for instance), but it does say something about the best this console generation has to offer. I suppose my opinion may be skewed slightly due to the automatic removal of "PC-too" games like Bioshock and Oblivion, but there should be more than one game that can drive the purchase of a system! Where are the games for which I am the target demographic? I was told they were on the PS3 and the 360, but they don't seem to be. Perhaps I'm no longer in the target demo?
