Why is the Wii looked down upon?

I have had a wii for a long time and people always tell me I wasted my money. Why do people always put down the wii? They also say that the wii is meant for kids even though they have many M rated games. The graphics are improving at a rapid rate so why do people still put this system down even though it is the best selling console?

I also find this. People seam to think your either have the X Box 360 and if you say you havn't then they assume you have a PS3. I have a Wii. Ok it does get a bit of a pain with the active way of playing, but you can buy the classic controller. The downside of it, is that it can't play DVD's, altho that feature being there would of made the wii a lot more expensive.

It's more of the lack of "traditional" games. The motion sensitive thing is great, but the graphical handicap has scared some projects that might have been killer hits on the system. The other problem is the Wii has a lot of pretty crappy games. Yes it's the most dominant system on the market, but it has a pretty shallow selection right now.

I don't think people are attacking the Wii personally, but rather attacking Nintendo. People anymore like the more violent video games and don't like the games that are just pretty fun, relaxing type games. I feel the reason why Xbox and Playstation are so popular is because of the amount of games available for each system involve killing and violence. That's what is in right now. The Wii is more for families and for people that aren't so much into the whole shooting and killing people thing.
