    Wii Injuries?

    Ok, so how many of us Wiichatters have had any injuries due to playing Wii? I didn't realise there were so many injuries out there but after watching this video I am pretty sure these people are not the brightest crayons in the box. Yeah the first wriststrap was very scrawny, but most of the people hit their hands on ceiling fans by a swing of the wiimote or whack the person next to them in the eye..Have this ever happened to you? I don't know anyone personally that has done this, and trust me they arent brainiacs![MEDIA]http://youtube.com/watch?v=Xj3W-6ZfFw8[/MEDIA]

    The boyf tends to smack people (including me) when playing tennis, however he is the clumsiest person I've ever met lol.

    While playing with four people on tennis I accidentally swung and hit my friend, then after than I "accidentally" hit them a few more times, but nothing serious, like poking someone's eye out or anything that requires a sling.

    Not personally. Worst thing I've done is jabbed the wiimote into someone's arm.

    Perhaps the Wii should have an honorary award from the Darwin awards thing. I mean, it did make a contestant die in a water drinking contest at one time...

    ...So deadly, yet so fun!


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    I have never dropped or smashed someone's face in with the Wiimote.
    The injuries that most people seem to come up with are just plain ridiculous to be honest. There is a very thin line between accidental and pure stupidity and most people seem to appear within the second category.
    I am not usually harsh, but these kind of things really annoys me when people then complain to news reporters and such about how the Wii is dangerous.

    I know what you mean. I remeber it being possible that some people would likely try and sue Nintendo, or have Nintendo replace their TV's.

    Stupidity followed on from stupidity in my opinion.

    Ok well when I just got my Wii I quickly learned that for tennis flicking the controls was much better than trying to swing it like a real racket. My girlfriend and my best friend both had a problem with that saying that I was 'cheating.' So I would do normal swings just for them. I could see how someone could get hurt.

    Bowling on the other hand has hurt me because I've hit my hand on a table behind me. I take the Wii to different places and sometimes the room layout changes. I've hit the fan too. Bowling is the most likely to cause injury or damage IMO.
