Nintendo Wii

Eric and I spent a good deal of time during Christmas break with his old high school buddy, Jon, and his wife, Carrie. Most of that time we played the tank game on the Wii. It was tons of fun. We played on teams, and Carrie and I were pretty amazing. One night two of Eric and Jon's friends came over, Ryan and Joe, and we all took turns playing the winner. Carrie and I pretty much dominated, which thrilled us to no end. At one point, Ryan said, "How are the girls winning at a tank game? It defies genetics!" I replied, "It's all about communication!" "Co-what?" Ryan is funny.

Really though, I love the Nintendo Wii! The graphics are simple, the games are simple, and I guess that's why a lot of people don't like it. But I totally dig simple, mindless computer games, and that's the sort of games you've got with the Wii. They are just fun! To me, games aren't about the graphics anyway.

In addition to the tank game, we played a little cow racing and a couple of other games. The overall essence of the Wii is fun. They are games anyone can enjoy, not just people who are good at and play video games a lot. Your grandma would enjoy the Wii. Really. It's just that fun.

I like the Wii too. And you're right. The simplicity and accessibility is part of the fun. More complicated games require more of a commitment than I'm willing to give to video games.

Whoa, I totally played the cow game over Christmas as well. I lost. Badly. I don't want to talk about it.
