This is so cool:
My dad bought us a Wii. It’s been running almost constantly since about three this afternoon.
And the games are fun too. Nintendo’s goal with this Wii was to get the whole family playing–not just the 18-24 year old males. And it worked! My mom and dad spent some time playing the Wii Sports bowling game–and my Mom scored a record high score, beating scores that my brothers and I had set.
One other fun thing is the little “Mii’s” that you can create. You can design little avatars that look like you or your friends, and then use those Mii’s to play some of the games. I hope that more games–not just Wii Sports–take advantage of this feature. At some point, I’ll have to post a photo of my Mii.
I love the Wii. It’s beautifully designed and fun to play with, whether you’re watching the news or playing games. (Thanks, Dad!)
