Most people out there I will not be able to convince either way about the Wii.Â Either you are already in love with is, as I am, or you hate it and Playstation/Xbox/MMORPGs are the way to go.Â But you are here reading this post, so you must be interested a little.
So, if you already love the Wii, what else can I say to you? We could converse about how great the system development is.Â We could have lenghty chats about how great Wii Sports is, and that no, we don't understand who would actually buy for $50.00 bucks
since it comes with the system.Â The conversation has probably already been had at how incredible games like Zelda
and Rayman are for the system and how sore our upper bodies are from the constant use of the Wii
. Prose is already exhausted over how awesome and revolution- (see, if you knew that this was the system's orginal name you would think I was cool right now)ary the controllers are even though you have to buy the wii-mote and the nunchuks separately.Â But, we have already had this conversation.
Right now I want to talk about your mother.Â Is your mom already playing your Wii?Â Cause she will be.Â The Wii is designed for people of all age groups, heck, the installation pamphlet has elderly people playing inside.Â So, your mom is a lot younger than the elderly, right?Â Has your mom already bought the Dalmations Nintendogs for her pink or teal DS Lite?Â If so, your Wii is in danger of consistanly dead batteries and parental abuse.Â I don't want to be the bearer of bad news but your mom may even be better than you at the Wii.Â I know it's scary but it's entirely possible.Â We have to face these problems together as a generation.Â Games
are no longer being marketed to just the youth and single men over the age of 40.Â No, they are being marketed towards our mothers and grandmothers.
And your mom is going to be addicted to making Miis.Â She is gonna have a little parade of Mii replicas of herself and her friends in your Mii Plaza.Â You will go to play bowling and in the next lane, you see your mother!! She will be on your baseball team.Â You will see her everywhere.Â It's going to be a Mii infestation.
My solution to you?Â Buy your mom her own controller.Â Then, she can store all of her little Miis on her controller and not have them leave their dirty footprints in your Mii plaza. And, I mean, it is kinda creepy when a Mii that looks exactly like your mom (how did
she get it so close?) is always hanging out in the bowling alley.
Another thing before I wrap this up.Â Any one of you who thinks that the Wii isn't worth it's weight in whatever you find to be not worth it's weight should try to play it first.Â At least three of my friends who were like, 'man, the Wii is stupid, I wanna play Gears of War!' completely changed their tunes after playing just one round of tennis in Wii Sports.Â They are all trying to find Wiis now, and to them I say, good luck!Â They do have a better chance of getting one than if they were looking for a PS3 (way to drop the bomb Sony!) and they will have more friends in the long run since playing the Wii in a group is much more fun than playing alone.
So, in conclusion, what did you learn here?
