    Kay, Im gonna need your guys's help here!

    Kay, Guys..

    My mom hates the wii.. She doesn't understand why i would ever need a gaming system (typical mom? )
    Anyway, I think i have her thinking of getting it for me for christmas.. Maybe.. Maybe
    Anyway, Im writing a christmas list for her.. And she says that if i was to get the wii.. thats all i would get from her and my dad for xmas..
    So.. I need to choose carefully what i want for the wii.. I figure i can ask for..
    Wii
    Extra Wiimote (Maybe? )
    One Game (I love Warioware, So i might ask for it.. but zelda is amazing to)
    Vitual console card (I figure that can satisfy my need for games till i can buy another wii game)
    And last, not least...
    Classic Controller.. Now, this one im not sure about.. Im canadian, Do we have it in stores yet? Which stores? Which Price? Is it worth it?

    Kay.. I need you guys to play with my list.. and tell me what i need the most.. And maybe some suggestions on how to work grandparents into getting something.. because from my parents its the wii console--thats it

    Thanks

    With a mom you might want to go with the "it isn't a lazy fat person console, it gets you moving" because that is where most moms want to say no.

    If you can get her into a store where you can test it out and make sure you move your arms, even thought you can really just flick your wrist for the most part make sure she thinks you have to move your arms a bunch.

    I would go with Zelda over WarioWare for a first game, just for the simple reason that Zelda will last longer if you don't use a guide. I love both game series so that is really the only reason.

    If you are going to get a Virtual Console game you will want a Classic Controller because they ALL take it, and not all take Wii-mote turned sideways, or Gamecube controller.

    An extra Wii-mote and Nunchuk would be the way to go if you were to get an extra set, not jsut the Wii-mote. hat is about $60 USD though so you might wait and get that later, or possibly get a Wii-mote from your parents and a Nunchuk from another relative or friend, seeing as it only cost $20 USD and the Wii-mote cost $40 USD.

    Ofcourse the most important thing on this is to get the Wii, without it the rest is just wasted gifts.

    Kay.. According to nintendo power, i might not be able to use a gcn controller with Genesis games, or Turbografx.. So should i still put money into it.. if i might have to go out and buy a classic controller?

    And..
    I think i like the look of the classic controller over all more.. but.. meh.. on a budget it doesn't make a difference

    I miss the days of blagging people into buying me the christmas gift I wanted and then worrying I still might not get it .Christmas was ace when I was young. The only good thing about it now is my mates all come back and we get leathered for two weeks .

    Oh and in your predicament I always found leaving useful clues around the house was a good system and dropping in the name of what I wanted into conversation. For example -

    Mum - "Big_Mill I wish you wouldnt just sit watching TV all day, get some exercise"
    Me - "Well Mum If I had a Wii I would be playing tennis or swinging a sword and getting some much needed exercise"

    Something along those lines but less crappy and cheesy.
