The reason I ask is because right now as I write this, I am babysitting my granddaughters and they are playing the Wii. I also find it fun to play as well, and it is very interactive and very addictive. My favorite game is the bowling. Okay I know kids spend to much time playing these games, but at least with the Wii adults can interact with children and have fun, plus alot of the games are very active and you can get a little exercise to boot! How do you feel about this, and do you play games with your kids?

I prefer the Wii over our other game systems. It gets the kids moving and active. There are a lot of fun games for it that they can play. It is a great way for them to be able to play their video games and also be active and getting exercise at the same time. We have other game systems, but by far the Wii is the best in my opinion.

I love the Wii! I love the fact that many of the games require some physical activity. Right now my family is hooked on Wii Fit Plus. Anyone who thinks that it's just a game hasn't tried it yet! It works your muscles!

Ha ha I get a kick out of that game where it tell you how old they think you are, based on the way you played the random games that they picked for you.

I think if you are looking to get into interactive and engaging gaming that doesn't involve simple thumb movements the wii is a good option. The kinect is glitchy and the motion tracking is laggy compared to the wii.

My grandkids get me to do some crazy things sometimes lol. I never thought I would play the Wii, I'm more of a computer game playing person.

I love to play the wii. I've always loved nintendo games, from the way back in the past regular nintendo to the super nintendo, n64 and now the wii. I know their was a game cube too but I never played one of those. I like to play alot and I like to play with my kids. I swear my 3 year old can beat me half the time. He bowled a 277 on wii sports bowling. We have the family game night games too. I highly recommend those. It's a new easy way to play board games you used to play as a kid, and you don't have to worry about losing pieces lol.

Ya I remember to that it all started with Nintendo, boy we sure have come a long way. My other granddaughter has the game cube, but I have not played it yet, and I really don't know anything about it.

I liked it when we first bought it a few years ago. Bowling was our favorite game, also, but we became rather bored with it. I don't even have it plugged in right now. We just never seem to find time to play anymore :(

I really like wii too, it's good because you have fun and can lose some calories at same time! My favorite game is tennis, which I think is pretty realistic. I like the old games too, but when you are with your friends, it's a lot more fun to play wii!!

I used to have a wii but don't anymore. I like the wii because it is interactive, but don't like many of the games on it. I much rather use a 360. A lot of consoles are coming out with interactivity like the wii has. I don't have any children, but I am sure they will enjoy video gaming as myself and my friends do!

My child is too little for the Wii. She does not have the hand eye coordination needed to be successful with the games. That being said, i do have Wii fit and love it. i use it 3 to 5 times a week for at least a 30 minute work out. this is on top of the 30 minutes I spend walking to and from the park and the time I spend playing at the park. on rainy days, I usually do two different sessions to make up for the lack of walking. it looks like today is a two wii fit day.

I have a Xbox360 and I don't have a Wii. In the past I preferred to have the Xbox360 rather than Wii because I think the Xbox360 games are much more advanced and exciting. Now I think Wii is good because at least you can regard it as an exercise. It is especially good for the children because they can participate it together. It can be a game for a whole family. I love China
