.... If I was trying to be "smugly superior" I would have used Hardcore gamers instead, lol. By real all I was trying to get across simply people who aren't in the casual/non gamers that is all.
This is true, to a point. The Wii is under that point to me however.
New Super Mario Bros., Mad World, No More Heroes, Metroid Prime 3, LoZ: Twilight Princess, and all the various minigames and collections of minigames.
That list makes the Wii worth it. Yeah, they don't look super-pretty, but they're all a hell of a lot of fun.
Of course, YMMV on each individual one.
And I do feel that your post was very smugly superior, because to me the term "real gamers" is even more exclusive than "hardcore gamers." "Hardcore gamers" describes the level of interest. "Real gamers" simply implies that people who don't play the same games as you simply aren't gamers.
