Can't wait to get my hands on a Wii! Some background info: The only Nintendo console I've owned is the NES & I didn't get one of those until the SNES was out (how's that for being born under a bad sign) Then I got into PC gaming hardcore but ended up getting tired of that b/c I felt like I was spending more time playing w/the settings on my PC to get games to run right than actually playing games. So I broke down & under the influence of my friends got an xbox. I thought it was great for a while, but recently have grown tired of the non-innovative gameplay. Each game just gets a graphics makeover but the game mechanics are relatively unchanged. Nor did the PS3 or Xbox360 excite me that much. It was during this time that I was watching footage from E3 & was blown away by the Wii & I realized I'd been missing the whimsical, creative & engaging games from Nintendo. Never have I been so impressed by a game as when I 1st played Legend of Zelda & later, Super Mario 64. So, to feed my new itch for some Nintendo action again, I unhooked my xbox & bought an old N64, so I could play Ocarnia of Time Also, during my xbox stint I wished that video game companies would create a new innovative controller, to freshen up gameplay. Lo & behold, here comes the Wii to save the day! (& the price point doesn't hurt ) whew, that was long!
