Wii is an exceptional gaming platform that has restored my faith and interest into gaming.
Though the console might not be up to the technical challenges of hugh performance high definition gaming of Playstation 3 or modern PC-games games on Wii are much more fun. Well designed Wii games remind me of the old days of console and computer games where great ideas were much more important than technical effects.
Mario Kart wii could be said to be exceptionally simple driving game, but my god it is addictive and fun. And you do not need to be a seasoned gamer or male to play and understand the fun in it. We had a blast playing together with female non-gamer visitors and could enjoy wins and defeats without a steep learning curve into the game.
They definitely know key ingredients to the secret sauce at Nintendo.
I am a fan.
