Nintendo Wii

Who here owns a Wii or has played with one? I know very little about them. What can you tell me? What games are the must haves? What about accessories? Are there any you really need. What about Wii fit?

Please educate a Wii dummy.

I know nothing about it except what's been shown on TV. The nursing homes in my area are using it as an exercise-type tool for their residents. Seems to be well received by them.

Got the Wii love the wii
got the wii fit too. love it too.

Must haves:

Wii Sports: Comes with a controller. Its a good buy.
Carnival games: Just alot of fun


I cant remember the other games that I really enjoy but the wife likes,
American idol, mario party 8, open season and a few others.

the wii fit is cool. a decent work out. and it makes it fun and you can unlock 1 where you can do the exercise and watch tv.

A little birdy told me I am getting one tomorrow so I am kind of excited. I like the idea of the fit. If you are going to be in front of the TV then you may as well get a little exercise while there.

Talk to me about this GRK. What do you mean you can unlock 1? So I can do the Wii fit exercises while having regular TV on? Would it be a picture in picture type thing?
