Top 5 Complaints Gamers Have About the Wii (And Why They're BS)

The Graphics Suck

At the time of its release, the Wii was competing with Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3. The latter two touted a graphical output of 720p, which could be upscaled to 1080p on the right display.

And as for the Wii? 480i with the included composite cable.

This was a revelation that many could gamers could not abide, and left the Wii behind for its beefier competitors -- even if they had previously identified as Nintendo fans.

Yeah, 480i may not look the best on a 52" 4k display, but I've always felt that placing too much emphasis on graphics leaves behind the other factors that make a game great, such as responsiveness and fun factor, which the Wii has in spades -- and if graphical output is all that's holding you back, there are plenty of component cables or Wii2HDMI adapters can bump it up to 1080p.
