Since my last post way back in September, I managed to find a Nintendo Wii and my wife bought it for me for Christmas. Since we started playing it a few weeks ago, we both really enjoy it. Since we’ve wanted to play with lots of others, most of our playing has been in Wii Sports, but it has been a lot of fun.
Let me tell you why I like the Wii:
- It hasn’t caused me to go broke
- It’s fun for all kinds of people!
- I can play video games with my 5-month-old daughter
And there you have it! Those are the top two reasons. I admit that there are tons of other gaming systems that are fun, but the Wii really has been fun for everyone I know who has played it. Even little baby Emmy loves being held while we play bowling, which is something I just can’t do while playing X-Box. When my sister and her family was in town last week we brought it to my parents’ house and even they played bowling. I took the Wii to our new apartment yesterday, and my mom already asked when we were bringing it back. Even my dad played with us, and the only other games I remember him playing are Super Mario Bros. over 15 years ago and Super Mario Kart on the SNES. It’s interesting to note that this lack of gaming experience hasn’t been a disadvantage at Wii Sports; I must admit that despite owning the system, I’ve been beaten by both of my parents at Wii Bowling. I’ve had fun playing the new Zelda game as well as Marvel: Ultimate Alliance on the Wii, so I’ll share my opinion of those games a little later.
