    Wii as Therapy

    I had to share this just because I think it's the coolest thing ever. My sister works at a nursing home for the elderly and she informed me that the old people there are using the Wii as their main activity. They are even using it for rehabilitation patients in there. I wish they would let me take a video camera in there so I can show you all how hilarious it is to watch 10 or so old men and women, nearing their 90s, playing bowling. Just had to share that is all.
    I own these games: Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock, Excite Truck, Resident Evil 4, Need for Speed: Carbon, Wii Play, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Rampage: Total Destruction, Rapala's Fishing, Super Mario Galaxy, NFS: Pro Street, Metroid, Fire Emblem, RE: UC, Wii Sports, Ice Age 2, Elebits.

    That's really cool. Plus, they're not gonna bitch about the lack of high def since most of them have cataracts and can't see very well.

    I had heard something about Wii used as therapy in another place. Anyway, it's great to hear it again, it means it's expanding its use as treatment.


    Spoiler Alert!

    Yup, Ninty really pulled this one off.

    My sister is a physical therapist and her office just got a wii about a month ago. There showing up in hospitals, therapies, YMCA's, and even libraries.

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd
