Wii's growing number of Mature games


There is a growing number of Mature rated titles being released on the Wii, not all of them are great games but it is nice to see that the adult audience is not being left out. Here is a list of some of the good "M" rated games on the Wii:


Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

No More Heroes

The Godfather: Black Hand Edition

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles

Scarface

House of the Dead 2 & 3

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

Manhunt 2

These games rated from good to great in most reviews across the internet, so this is not a list of all the "M" rated content on Wii. The Wii has proven that Mature rated games can sell (RE4, REU) as long as some effort is being put into the product. Also, I beg you Third Party developers to put out some advertising for your games! I don't think I've seen one commercial for any of the games listed above, it's amazing some of them have still sold so well.

they dont advertise,but cry when there games dont sell?!?

Exactly. How can they complain when they themselves don't even let anyone know that they are releasing a game? Sure, IGN does previews and everything but that only reaches gamers that check their site. I can't tell you how many of my friends had no idea about No More Heroes until I told them about the game. They said if they had seen some kind of ad for the game they would've picked it up for sure, but they were glad I told them about it so they didn't miss out.

That happens all the time with people i know.
ae you going to post about smash sales?

Metaldave said...

Nah, all the other sites already have that news and it is nothing surprising really...it is nice to know that Smash already sold 1.5 million in a few days though.

Hey Anonymous, you MUST tell me you name! You have so many emotion filled comments on my site, I'm very curious to know more about you. Where are you from? Who are you? and what do you like about the Wii?

I'll be nice, you know I don't dislike you or I would have deleted all your comments a long time ago.

yeah i really was thinking the same thing,i want to know who is this ghost writer.i agree with the "IMATURE" comment 100%. i never play gta from start to finish i just runaround and raise hell.
Ask your average gta player to play a zelda game and they would say "i dont like zelda theres too much reading".
