    Why is your doctor telling you to get a wii? If your living at home and your dad is buying your stuff you have to be a kid and if you are and your doctor is telling you that you need a wii maybe your biggest problem isnt what gaming console to get, maybe you should get outside and get some physical activity going.

    Then again if I am wrong and you just chill at the doctors office looking for gaming advice and tips thats cool. Do me favor and ask your doctor if he thinks the new GTA for PS3 coming out is going to be any good, I am not sure if I should buy it in advance, thx.

    Hes cheap with an ungrateful kid. I know plenty of kids who would kill for a wii.

    OCT 2006 Hear there is a local store with a demo of this amazing new console called the Wii, where your actions controlled the characters... Queued up and played WiiSports for the first time, almost peed myself with excitement, same as the lady i VSed.

    NOV-DEC Saved for Wii so I could afford RED STEEL, Zelda and extra controller.

    JAN-FEB 07 Played Wii religiously, loved showing mates what it could do.

    MARCH-MAY Novelty starts to wear off, begin looking for 'hardcore' games and buy MOH and Godfather.

    JUNE-AUG Hardly touch Wii, fortnight where it wasnt touched once.

    SEPT-DEC Wii gets very little attention, most of my gaming is on PC, but I hang onto the Wii in anticipation for things to improve.
    Decide that maybe 2007 wasnt Wii's year and hang in for a better 08.

    DEC-FEB 08 Play mainly GH3 and occasionally go back to unfinished games.
    STILL waiting for killer apps.
