My sister's 3 kids just got a Wii for Christmas and I got to play it today while the kids were at school. It was an interesting experience...
I only tried Wii Sports Bowling and Baseball though (and I also made my Mii).
I really enjoyed playing and find the remote much less frustrating than a true controller. (Plus, because it's wireless I can't accidentally yank the whole console off the entertainment stand (which I've done so many times with my original NES).
I found it easier to sit on the floor to play baseball but I found standing to be easiest for bowling.
I played for about 2 hours and am really kind of wiped.
I've had an original NES since 1988 that is still hooked up to my TV in my apartment right now that I play a few games on. I was never very good at it so I never spent the money to upgrade to something better but it's always a fun thing to do. Until today when I think a Wii might turn out to be something I might actually have fun with.
So I was wondering, do any of you (adults or kids with CP) play Wii? If you do how long did it take you to do good? When does it stop making you feel sore?
Do you sit? Do you stand? Both? What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Good game recommendations? Warnings?
What about Wii Fit? (That's what my sister thinks we're doing tomorrow, playing Wii Fit
The one thing I wish were easier was switching hands. Apparently you can't do it (at least on Sports) without effort and game stopping. I want to be able to switch hands for different moves... some things are easier with one hand vs. the other.
