Remember that God of War 2
dev who thought
the Wii's appeal was a novelty and wore off quickly? Well, he's posted a response
to all who found his earlier claims to be too hard to digest
. He goes on to say "First let me say I am not so quickly judging and writing off the wii..I am just saying what I played was not doing it for me. I think it is a good system...I just did not get bowled over with a sense of "Oh my god this is the future."
He also goes on to say a few things in regards to the social appeal of the system, stating "When friends come over though...I will be playing the wii a whole lot more...cause it is fun in a social situation...like freaking Guitar Hero. I played the hell out of the first one for a week or so...but then it kind of wore off for me...I still played it, just not as much. Of course when I have people over it becomes fun again. So to me..right now...the wii is a great social machine...but when I want to sit around and get sucked into a game for a lengthy session I am not gonna be playing the wii." Again, has this guy heard of Twilight Princess
? We sank 50 hours into the game before our final confrontation with the game's boss and found the experience to be one of the most immersive of our entire life.
