Why buy a Wii?

I know, I know. The Wii U is coming out next year but that doesn’t bother me one bit. I didn’t buy the Wii to play cutting edge games – that’s what I bought the Xbox 360 for a couple of months ago. You see, Danielle started complaining that there weren’t any games that she wanted to play on our newly purchased gaming console. We found an SNES at a pawn shop going for $80. $20 more for an extra controller, and about $20 per game (if we could find them). I convinced her not to get it (go figure. I’m just as much an SNES fan as the next guy, maybe more). But I’m also a fan of NES and N64, and I’m not gonna fork over 80 bucks for each! So last Thursday she couldn’t wait any longer and had every intent to go and buy it. Then I had the genius idea that maybe, just maybe, you could get old school Mario Bros and Mario Kart on the Wii. Turns out you can! And what better, because of the newly announced Wii U, we picked one up for $150 with Mario Kart Wii!!! So far we’ve downloaded Super Mario Bros, Super Mario World, Mario 64, Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64, Donkey Kong Country and fully plan on downloading ALL the Zelda games. We didn’t even bother with the motion sensor. Classic controller all the way.
