So when I first read about the Wii when it was in pre-production, my first thought was that it was going to be extremely lame. Clearly this would be a gaming novice platform (you know, the people who jerk their controller into the air while making their avatar jump). However, when my kids wanted to play video games, and I found that there was no appropriate content for small children on the xbox 360, I decided to get one "for them".
I will happily say that I was very wrong about the Wii. It's actually a ton of fun. My favorite games are Big Brain Academy and Carnival. Be warned though, as the husband of one of my employees apparently injured his rotator cuff muscles by playing pigskin pass (in Carnival) for 4 hours straight. Seriously, when using your game console becomes more injury prone than doing real sports, something has to change. I guess this proves the old adage that you can have too much of a good thing.
