Well as a 50 something mom I do know something about Video Game Stystems having had 4 boys two of which just turned 18. My boys do not own a Nintendo WII but their cousin does and we went for a visit and they wanted us all to try the bowling game. Well I thought that this would be easy since I bowl in a league - well I was wrong. It is challenging to get it down to where you roll the ball where you want it to go. We probably played games for about 2 hours and boy do you get a workout playing on Nintendo WII game system. I loved it and have decided to buy one for my family. It seems that Nintendo WII was the hotest game system out there this year and I have been told by several retailers that I will need to wait at least until the end of January to find one. I will wait patiently until I can buy one of these and just maybe this 50 plus mom will finally learn to play one of the video game systems out on the market. If you ever have the opportunity to try this gaming system I highly recommend it. Enjoy.
