I tried to resist it for God knows how long, but finally I cracked and got a Wii. Having some friends over for diner later in the day is what did it as, like it or not, there’s nothing on the fabulously hi-tech PS3 to hold a group’s attention other than blu-ray movies or DVD’s (not so true when I have just one friend over for racing/shooting games, though). It was time for some family fun, big style.
And fun it is- all kinds of mini-games and sports simulations had us laughing out loud. Thanks to the sturdy controller straps, too, nothing got smashed to pieces, either. I’m actually hoping to use it to get exercise without leaving my very cosy apartment, especially in the winter months.
How long it holds our attention remains to be seen, but certainly Wii sports seems like it should be interesting for, perhaps, ever, what with tennis, baseball, bowling, golf and boxing. May the fun never stop! May the games begin!
