WII Games my kids love and hate

  • Super Mario Galaxy - my daughter is amazing at this game
C hates it, so we bought him some Orange box thing - the best value in videogame history it touts. So far it seems to me like Half Life whose name I only remember, because it's a fun name for a first person shooter game
  • Lego Star Wars - still going strong though I bought it for them as my birthday gift near Thanksgiving. hey never tire of the jumping and running around. My husband is amused by the Star Wars story.
  • Guitar Hero though they both love to watch it, not play it.
  • Boogie - thought it's not so fun for me, because I have to sing "Doncha" over and over and over again
  • WII Sports - a surprise one, but my son still loves the fishing game and sometimes the shooting game, though sometimes he says it's too scary.

Failures
  • Cars - The voices and animation and crazy driving help my boy's interest for a while, but after a couple weeks he stopped asking to play it. It's not interesting enough to hold adult interest and he still needs an adult to play with him.
  • Zelda - "Too scary" say both of them, though they happily watch the Lego figures blow apart. My husband likes it, but not enough to play it when they're not around.

I hear bowling is fun for the whole family. I tried it once, and it was more entertaining than I thought t.v. bowling should be. I know my weaknesses and have avoided a Wii like a plague of chocolate. I will have to weedle someone into obtaining Super Mario Galaxy. My best friend just ended up with a portable nintendo thingie, that he says he might leave here when he heads back to Santa Cruz in a couple of weeks. I'm frightened. These silly things make cocaine look like a coffee addiction.

It really is a lot of fun, but I think I might be worried if I didn't have small kids. They're happy to play for a while, but then we have to go do something else.
