    Our parents won't let us get the Zapper because they don't like the way it looks like a gun. How can we convince our parents to let us get the zapper?

    that's a tough one. tell them it will add to your gaming experience. that you won't use it as a "toy" & point it at each other. who knows. good luck though

    Yeah, that might change her mind...or make her sell our Wii on ebay, lol. We'd probably get enough money to buy a new house (exaggerating, but not a whole lot).

    i'm sorry but it looks like a gun cos that's what its used as in most games. tell ur parents to get over it.

    on a more serious note, u should explain to them that playing with something that is gun-like will take away curiosity of guns, therefore, there is actually less chance that people will mess around with real guns and weapons if they have had experience with something fake such as the zapper. (if they don't believe you, tell them to find a good psychologist and/or philosopher and ask them for their opinion)

    Tell them that! i bet they'll buy you 4 zappers!!

    In my opinion, just dont get it (unless you want it for Links Crossbow Training)
    The trigger is in the front which is a bit akward. The whole thing is small which can be quite akward. It takes forever to set up (akward). The sensor is off which is also akward.
    The whole thing is just akward and I would recommend against getting it. You dont NEED it to play ang games since it doesnt provide any buttons/motion sensing.
    (I have one. I'm selling it tomorow)

    If you're completely hellbent on getting it, try explaining that you'll never try to learn from it or use it as a weapon.

    IMO It's a waste of money, I wouldn't even bother.

    Im taking mine back to EB Games cause i havnt played Links Crossbow Training which took an hour to finish since i got the game and also the Zapper doesnt seem that fun anymore. I would much prefer my $50 back.

    Yeah, but I'd need two more brothers or sisters to use them all. lol. Thanks, I think that might really work.
    On the other hand, I did hear something about how it messed with the nunchuck...whats that about?

    My brother loves it in Resident evil. I'd say, if you have a high enough amount of money to spend on games, that the $20-25 you spend on the zapper is worth it.

    Yeah, well, if there's actually a gun in the game, I actually have a NEGATIVE percent chance of getting that game. My mom is even growing suspicious of SSBB because it has the word Brawl in the title.

    I live . . . . in your soul . . . thats deep
    Well, if you REALLY want it, and I know I do, there are 2 ways to convice them.
    the first involves a shovel and a nailgun.
    OR, here is a smart answer.
    In a study 2 yearsago, scientists tested to see if violent gaming makes the human mind more violent.
    It turns out, 94% of the time, (I think) gamers see how violent the game is, and is inspired NOT to do that violent act.
    Just tell them that you love violence and want to shoot people, and you want to pretend to, then when they think your insane, print out a piece of paper from the web, or microsoft word, telling them this study, and place it somewhere they can read it.
    Then they say, "Our son can be saved!! Buy him the zapper to show him how bad guns are!"
    I dont know, think of something.
    You can also make a deal with them. Like chores or child exploitment or something for the zapper.
