The evidence mounts.
The Wii is a new era for gaming. Really. That’s not a dramatic, hype-driven statement. I think developers will indeed make horrible games for this system, and I can see how a developer could get the controls all wrong and make a bad experience for the player, but when it is done right, it is SO right. I have had a living room full of video games and systems for my entire adult life, and nothing has ever done what the Wii has done – fill a living room with laughing kids and adults who are all sitting around having a great time playing and watching the experience that this tiny, unassuming little white box has created for us. Every single person who has come through my door in the last three days wants to go out and buy a Wii now. Nintendo has made gaming really fun again.
I need to get one of these.
