    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 :rolleyes: (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!

    hey I am in the same boat as you, I owned a snes, then PS2. I got tired of gaming a little while ago but then found simple addicting games, and the Wii seemed...different, I was curious and now I plan on buying one and taking it to college.

    If you dont have your old systems, it can be very difficult to go out and find one for sale in good condition without shopping at online auctions, so I dont think bad thoughts of you if you download games for free (as long as the game is no longer being made).

    How is the N64 emulator? The N64 controller is so different, and I have a playstation style controller for my PC and not sure how I could adapt. I would love to play Ocarina again
