Comment on "Techniques for Finding a Wii"
by Andy Lee — Dec 21
This is getting dangerous. I have no aptitude for video games, so I've always felt comfortable steering clear and saving time and money. I thought Dance Dance Revolution looked like a fun way to burn calories, but my downstairs neighbors would never stand for it. Then a friend showed me the Nintendo DS, and I had that "Apple of the gaming world" reaction -- I immediately recognized the Mac-like sensibilities in its design. And it was so affordable. Still, I staved off the gadget temptation. *Then* I saw this: ("I bought a Nintendo GameBoy DS just to play this game"), and now I'm almost certain I'll get one.

My 9-year-old nephew got a Wii the day they came out -- he and his dad were at the store at 6 in the morning. I'm almost scared to go over and see how much fun it is. From what I've read, it's reasonably priced, it's a joy to use, in a way that Mac lovers immediately appreciate, and it involves physical movement, which appeals to me greatly.
