Game Informer "reluctant" about the Wii

Billy Berghammer from Game Informer reminisces on old N64 and Gamecube times in relation to Nintendo's new Frankenstein, the Wii. The tale is likely to be familiar for some.

I've mentioned before on how I skipped the SNES and N64 eras. Missing a little in the latter and a lot in the former along the way. Admittedly, I was anti-Nintendo for a while in favor of the seemingly more mature Sega Genesis and Playstation respectively. But I can say that the friends of mine who insisted on sticking with Nintendo during the N64 days seemed to have limited gaming in their lives.

Billy even mentions that he had to get a Playstation because he wanted to play new games, and the N64 just wasn't getting them. Nintendo had claimed they were bring this and that only for their promises to end up delayed. This carried over into the Gamecube era as well.

Rightly nervous, Billy is slightly skeptical of this "Nintendo rebirth" granted by the Wii. All seems well at the moment, but Nintendo could flail unexpectedly in their moment of glory.

Let's hope not; we need a solid Nintendo console amongst the alpha brutes from Microsoft and Sony.
