I've had my Wii for over a month now and I love the thing! I've been browsing this forum since my second day of ownership..... the wonders of google.... I have finally registered just to reply to this thread. I am 37 and I have strayed from nintendo since the old SNES console, have had the TELSAR (thats the old table tennis)ATARI ,NES, SNES, SEGA,SEGA GENISIS,SEGA CD,PLAYSTATION, PLAYSTATION 2... and now Wii. I can honestly say gameplay on the Wii has brought a level of joy in gameplay that I don't think I have ever experienced with any other console. My initial purchase was a console, Zelda, Elebits, and Sponge Bob.
Elebits and SpongeBob where intended to be for my twin 6 year old "kidies". Well something crazy happened! I picked up the wiimote and started in with Elebits with my kids..... before long (great daddy that I am) I was pushing my kids aside and hogging the Wii. So.... who is to say what games are "KIDDIE" and what games are not... certain elements and style of gameplay attract different people for different reasons. Your cup of tea may be bitch slapping a shop keeper for protection money or it may be searching under every rock and shrub for some spare rupee's so you can get some more lamp oil....(boy that stuff gets used up quick). The nutshell of what i'm trying to say is ... screw what these people are saying.... there are just lashing out because they failed to do what Nintendo is doing. Bring gaming to a larger demographic... and bring the whole family into it. Game night at my place has been nearly entirely replaced by Wii night. Well enough of my rant and thank you all for some great info I've gotten from this site!
