    Parents and the Wii

    I DO NOT have a Wii yet, and have a question:

    Niether of my parents have EVER played any videogames. My dad thinks that they are a waste of time and my mom gets dizzy very easily (like, if we do more than a 90 degree turn in a car she gets a headache, so in a videogame if it is a fps and you turn more than a 90 degree turn (to look to the side) than she will get dizzy).
    I know that the point of the wii was to get new gamers to start and old gamers to re-start, but my parents never were gamers. I would really like them to get into the wii, i think it would be cool, but I am highly doubting it. Both of them used to play golf, but dont have as much time anymore and recently quit, and I play as well.
    I was going to buy Tiger Woods 07 and try to get them into that game. My mom also likes sudoku, and I heard a while back about some rumors about a sudoku, (or a multiple puzzle) game. My dad is into basically all sports as well, so I was hoping that after a few hours of wii sports he might come around to it, and then I might get NBA Live 07/whatever baseball franchise is coming to Wii/Madden 07

    Do you think I have any hope? Have any of your non-gamer/gamer parents come around to the Wii?

    Feel free to answer my questions or just post stories of your parents wii-gaming experiences in this thread. Thanks to everyone in advance!

    My parents love to play wii. All my dad ever wants to do is vs me and my brother in baseball always trying to beat us (does real good). My mom loves to play tennis and bowling. they really get into it.

    before the wii, my mom only played solitare on the PC. on the other hand, my dad was a bit more avid. He used to play arcade games and first person shooters like Doom on the PC

    So, yeah they should get into it, all my friend's parents love to play Wiisports and my one friend's dad always likes to play red steel and COD3. but thats just them, i dunno about your parents. a lot of people become interested and others dont want anything to do with it. it all depends on what they think.

    My dad has played Wii Sports and Excite Truck once or twice. He wasn't too great at either. My mom just refuses to play video games and thinks they're a waste of time (too bad she can't see how much of a waste of time tons of other stuff she does is, but you can't wish for everything..).

    I guess I'm not too surprised, both of my parents were in their 30's before the first even half decent video game systems came out...
    Owned: Excite Truck [8 GRP], Wii Sports [6G, 7R, 8P], Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess [9G, 5RP], Elebits [7GR, 5P], Wii Play [5G, 8RP], The Godfather: Blackhand Edition [10G, 9R, 7P], Super Paper Mario [8G, 6R, 5P], SSX Blur [10 GRP].
    Rented: Rayman Raving Rabbids [6G, 7R, 9P].
    Wanted: Resident Evil 4, no Wii games currently.

    Both my parents hated games but after a few sessions on Wii sports they are always asking me for a game of bowling or tennis
    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but Im just not close enough to get the job done.

    My parents never give anything a ****ing chance! My dad dosnt care for games much...and he even played wii sports...ONCE! My mom thinks games are kids toys and just ignores me whenever I ask her if she wants to try (bitch)!!! My life is kind of....... revolved around games....and it really pisses me off when my parents ignore what I like and just want me to get into other things instead!

    it really dpends on your parents, and their ability to change,

    because even though its entertaining, games on the wii are still "pointless" in some peoples eyes, and no matter what type of controller youv got, your mum will still get dizzy/headaches when playing the game, that has nothing to do with enjoyment, its actually a physical thing.
