    Love it!

    I love my Wii. My grandson comes over and we have some of the best fun times playing on it. It's great for younger children as the games for it are easier for them to play.

    My kids loved our wii

    We no longer have it, but it lasted 9 years. I plan on getting a replacement because my kids loved it so much. Not only were they playing games, they were exercising and actually enjoying it. It's easy enough to use that my daughter at 4 was able to do it by herself.

    Great!

    We have a variety of systems in our house and this one happens to be my daughters! They have such a huge variety of games for this system and a very big amount of decent (younger) kid friendly games for it! I don't believe we have had any issues with this system, so it has held up nicely over the years! A great system for younger kids (and adults, too)!

    Family Fun

    My husband and I got a Wii for our birthday. We also have 3 kids, two of whom are old enough to play Wii games. Right out of the box, we found the Wii to be very intuitive. Set up was easy. He had it set up within a few minutes while I was putting the kids to bed (we wanted to try it out before letting the kids see it!) We immediately put in Wii Sports and found the game to be intuitive. We thought it was fun - my husband liked the Boxing best and I liked the Tennis best. We have really enjoyed Sports Resort as well. I think the swordplay is the overall favorite for 2 players, but we have also enjoyed Archery, Skydiving, Table Tennis (well, that's me!), and Frisbee (my husband). In addition to the included games, we got a few others. My 5 year old LOVES the Princess and the Frog Wii game. We also really enjoyed Just Dance! My 4 year old still doesn't understand the controllers, but she was able to participate in Just Dance! without them. My 5 year old and I both held the controllers (we only have 2 right now). Mario Kart is probably our favorite game! It is fun for adults and kids alike (though it is too hard for my 4 year old).

    The reason we chose a Wii was the fact that it is fun for the whole family. With the games we have played, there are things for people with a range of ages and skill levels. I love that my kids can play and not get frustrated. We really enjoyed playing Wii games with family and guests. Because the Wii is intuitive, people who have never played before can easily join in with games such as Sports, Sports Resort, Mario Kart, and Wii Ski. Swordplay on Wii Sports Resort is a huge hit for social gatherings. I'm not saying that the games are really easy - only that it doesn't require hours of practice to have fun.

    We aren't what I call serious gamers. My husband and I used to play a lot of computer games when we were younger and we had Nintendo systems as kids. But we haven't really played many video games as life got hectic. The Wii definitely has better graphics than what we had seen 7 or 8 years ago when we played video games more regularly. I think that the Wii really is the perfect system for a family.

    For people interested in a Wii, you don't need to get too much extra other than what comes in the box since it comes with two games. However, it only comes with one controller - get a Remote Plus (you don't need Motion Plus with the Remote Plus and either Motion Plus or Remote Plus are necessary for Wii Sports Resort). I definitely recommend getting one more Remote (at least) so you can play with others. You may also want an additional Nunchuck. Last, consider getting a charging station.

    As for games, shop around. There's something for everyone. I found that a LOT of games are available for significantly less than $50. Only the newest games are that pricey (and nearly all video games cost around $50 or more when they first come out). You may want to check out some gently used games too or renting them from your local video store. Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort are fun games, but they aren't "classic" video games. The neat thing with Wii is that you can also revisit video games and characters that you enjoyed 20 years ago!

    Ahead of its time

    The Wii is not a bad system, but a lot of the concepts I feel like the people crafting the Wii had in mind when they designed it were not able to match up with the technology at the time.

    So Many Games

    Now I'm not sure about everyone. However I grew up with Ninetendo - duck hunt, castlevania & Zelda. I love how this brings back a lot of those old games in the store plus can play new games and older games that are re mastered , being an Adult with all those childhood memories and fun again totally rocks!
    If your gamer you will notice ease of navigation within the system, very easy set up (cords & system) as well as the cute little Mii verse . Some games are suited for younger children and some are much better for adults as well as a huge store (to purchase) library of games that are wonderful for family games. I find no other system beats Nintendo's family games.

    Amazing for family time

    I love the Nintendo Wii because it can be played as single player, or with an entire family. It is so family orientated.
    There are a wide variety of games, and the option to create a mii makes it very fun too. I love the Mario games franchise, and that is something my family has grown up on, so it fun to play original games on that as well.
    The health component to this is also pretty incredible. The wii fit helps you to stay motivated and crush your goals.
    All in all, I really like the Wii, the only downside I would say is that it unless you have rechargeable batteries, you will constantly need to by buying new batteries for the remotes.
