Hello! Apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place. Since they both seem to be affordable now and I have a good enough TV at the moment, I'm considering getting either a Wii (not the U) or an XBox 360. I know they're old technology now, technically. I have little to no gaming experience. I'm just interested in it as an occasional hobby. I get too restless to play for very long, but at the same time I've found that gaming can help with intellectual and visual stimulation that I seem to be lacking sometimes. I'm a very visual person and I really enjoy taking in great graphics. As a writer I also enjoy getting inspiration from the narratives and randomly awesome elements of some games. I don't think I've played anything on XBox 360 before, I just know that it's a good system. The last system I owned was a PS2. The only Wii game I've played all the way through (and at all?) is De Blob 2, which I know might be a kid's game, but I really enjoyed it. The type of game I enjoy is pretty consistent with that format. Really beautiful levels that you can roam around with lenient time limits, little violence. So basically a big component is how great of image quality I can get between the two systems. I know they're not the newest ones so it won't be the best, but I haven't played the One or U so I can't compare it to those graphics anyway. I also understand that the inventory of games is different between the two systems so I'm hoping someone can enlighten me as to which will have a better stock of non-violent puzzle type games or adventure games with really great graphics. I think I should add that when I say puzzle games, I still want the game to have an avatar that I move through linear levels rather than just straight up doing a puzzle. The last adventure game I played was probably Tak and The Power of Juju on PS2 and it was one of my favorites because I really enjoyed how great the jungle environments looked. I know that sounds ridiculous now, just trying to provide some background... I was originally set on the wii but I'm considering the Xbox 360 because it seems pretty affordable, and because I worry the Wii will have mainly kids games, basically because of how I've seen it marketed. De Blob 2 might technically be a kids game but I still feel like I can retain my dignity when I play it lol. I also really don't like that wii wand controller which seems to be necessary for a lot of wii games? Not sure on that. I think the 360 might have better graphics which is a big draw for me, and I worry there might be fewer games available for the wii. I'm a pretty cheap person so I'm sure I'll be buying all used games. The 360 does cost a little more so if I go with that I want to be sure it's the best option. Just looking at consoles on Amazon I got really thrown off because I don't know how you decide on how much memory you need, or whether it's a smart idea to buy a used console. One other thing is that I'm a bit of a privacy geek and I have no interest in accessing games over wifi or in MMOs. If it was hooked up to the wifi, I might sync up whichever system I got to my netflix account, but that's about it. I do have a big DVD collection I'd like to be able to play. I used to try playing DVDs on a friend's wii and I could never get it to read it. Not sure if that's a commonality or whether something additional needed to be installed. I know this a really personal and amateur and lengthy request so I really appreciate any insight from the pros!
