Gamecube had great graphics why complain about the Wii? LOOK and wake up
Over the past month or year, people on videogame forums and on the internet in general have been complaining about the Wii and its so-called low power that is considered weak when compared to the other next-gen systems. They seem to think that the games will just look like crap when compared to the PS3 and Xbox360. Let me ask you now to go back and play some of the best looking Gamecube games like Starfox Adventures, Resident Evil 4, Rouge Squadron 2 and Rebel Strike and tell me that you are not impressed by what that system can/could do.
During E3 a lot of people said the graphics on the Wii were no good because a lot of games looked like Gamecube. Does that mean that the games actually looked bad though? Not at all. People are just never satisfied with what they see. Even our beloved Joystiq is starting to say little comments in their posts on Wii games and how they don't look good compared to the other systems. What good does that do? Should we have to keep reminding ourselves that the Wii will look good? How stupid is that, when we know it will be 2-3 times as powerful as Gamecube? I don't know about you but a game that looks 2-3 times better than Resident Evil 4 is a pretty damn awesome looking game. Did we see any of that at E3? No. This is only the beginning of the Wii's life and developers are focusing on what is REALLY important and thats how well each game plays with the new revolutionary controller.
These games coming out for Wii are going to be awesome and we haven't even seen (as ATI has said) the "tip of the iceberg" yet on what the system is actually capable of in the graphics department. Nintendo has spent millions researching ways to make better graphics with less specs and less power consumption. We are going to see a system that maybe looks only a little better than Gamecube at first but once developers get some time with the real final dev kits(not just a couple of freaking months) we will start to see a bigger leap from Gamecube. Really though why make such a huge fuss over it anyway? Once you get your hands on that controller you won't be thinking about all this graphics speculation. Nintendo makes addicting and fun games, and their systems have never come up short in the graphics department. The Wii will have it all: great games, revolutionary control, and great graphics for a low price. Not good enough for you? Get over it.
Stop the graphics threads
Enough is enough
