More Wii Magic

The more I play with the Nintendo Wii the more I like it. In fact, just watching other people play with it is fun enough. We went to see more folks today, and I unpacked the Wii and turned it loose. There were conversations like:

"How do I use this then?"
"Just hit the ball"
"So, which buttons do I press?"
"You don't, just hit the ball with it"

And so they did. Watching four people play tennis together is very amusing, and some of the rallys went on for a fair time. I reckon that we will soon outgrow the simple games that come with the device. I just hope that they produce some "proper" sports games to go with it.
