We got the Wii. Now what's a game that *I'll* like?
A while back, I asked this question
about getting a Wii. And then Santa brought it! (Funny how that works out!) My 50-something husband and 6.5-year-old son are in high heaven. Their top games so far are Lego Star Wars, Mario Kart and Mario Brothers.
But I can't stand those. I get that the Star Wars game is a long, saga-style project so it's not an easy drop-in-drop-out game for me. I thought I'd enjoy the Mario Brothers or the Mario Kart, but it turns out that these following details matter:
1: I'm not very coordinated using the controls.
2: I get annoyed when the other game player(s) are very competitive.
3: I don't enjoy the sense of not being (fairly easily) able to do it, and losing all the time. For instance, in one portion of the Mario Kart game, I came in last and scored zero points.
Then we popped in a dancing game
and voila -- FUN FUN FUN for the whole family, literally. Yes, we were competing. Yes, I lost (most of the time). But that was overcome by the sheer amount of laughter and amusement that we were all experiencing -- the dancers, the observers, everyone.
So what are some other Wii games that I will enjoy?
One other thing -- we have not had a chance yet to explore the sports-related games that came with the console. I believe it's the Wii Play set.
