Metroid Prime. I'm struggling to believe this came out in 2002. I am playing the Wii version, but it's identical bar the motion controls. How Retro Studios translated Metroid to a 3D first person space is one of the greatest achievements in gaming imo.

I'm the opposite, I thought it was near unplayable shite ūüė¨

That said my time as a wii owner lasted approximately 2 weeks, I hate motion controls 

It just makes the whole game so much more immersive. They are spot on too. Don't think I can ever go back to pad controls for this now. 

I know a lot of games kind of shoe-horned the motion controls in, but when they're done thoughtfully you just can't go back.

The Wii was an amazing little system. Apart from the great first party titles (2 Zelda games for starters!), most models were completely backwards compatible with the GameCube, even including 4 controller ports and a memory card slot. Not only that, but it's ridiculously easy to softmod and it's probably the best emulation machine out there. That's how I was playing Super Metroid in its original resolution.

Wasn't having it then and I'm not having it now! 

My gaming habits are that my wife will go to bed between 9 - 10pm, ill go slump on the sofa and stick something on for a couple of hours, back when the wii came out I was at my parents home in my bedroom and played games till 3/4am 

I'm not doing motion controls, it's just outright not how I want to play games 

I was working at GAME at the time and got suckered in by how popular they were, traded my 360 for one, 2 weeks later I talked the manager in to letting my change it back 

Absolutely nothing for me, massive gimmick

started playing it, its a strange game, had a couple of "game over" on it which was infuriating and i didn't fully understand it, its a little bit awkward in the controls and its proper text heavy, loads of reading, everything about it says i shouldn't like this game...and yet even early in maybe 2 hours i think its got me, i didnt want to turn it off last night...theres just something about it thats awesome and i cant put my finger on it, id say its a lot like point and click games like grim fandango or monkey island but its not off puttingly hard or complicated with the puzzles everything so far has kind of made sense im not reaching for youtube or game faqs to help me theres a lot that falls in to place quite naturally, the writing is brilliant

I can't believe I am playing Civ V again but I love that game.  It's almost 22 years old which makes me feel a little old as well.

Marathon big maps on Prince difficult,  7 other AI players.  

Was going to have a little go a few months ago and now its an hour a night minimum.
