Honestly half the reason I bought it was for the marketplace thing and the ability to play all the great games I loved when I was younger that I no longer have. Well that and New Super Mario Bros. U.
I bought a couple original Wii games too...but I can't play them (or access the marketplace) because I don't have an original Wii remote. The behemoth gamepad and the Wii U Pro (which is basically exactly the same thing as the ****ing Wii Classic controller) don't do anything in 'Wii Mode'.
Man, I wish Sega was still in the business of making consoles and kickass games...instead of just making crappy games and re-releasing 12 year old games for every platform imaginable. Real gaming died along with the Dreamcast.
Yeah the Wii is a gimmicky joke IMO. My fiancee has one. I've never seen the appeal of it myself, but I finally broke down a few weeks ago and played it for the first time. After about 5 minutes I thought it was just as silly and lame as I always had thought it was.
Personally when it comes to gaming, I'll stick with my PS3. Although I wish my PS3 Slim still had backwards compatability with PS2 games like how my original PS3 did. Sadly my original one bit the dust.
