Do video games seem to be something that separates your family? Are your kids on one console, your spouse on the computer, with you just standing there wondering what all the fuss is about? Make gaming time family time with the Nintendo Wii.
The Wii is a fantastic gaming console for all levels of gamers. Experienced gamers will enjoy the novelty of motion-sensitive controls and the familiar faces of gaming heavyweights Mario, Link, and so on. New gamers will find the controls extremely intuitive and the learning curve shallow and accessible. Point-and-click interfaces are easy to operate for people of all ages, and there are games to appeal to everyone, from first-person shooters to party games for very young kids to trivia games for grown-up fun after a dinner party.
The Wii's graphics are less sophisticated than the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3, and the motion sensitive controls take some getting used to. In the end, though, the novelty is worth the price of admission (which is the lowest one going for a new console). Get your hands on a Wii today!
