Finally - A Game Console

I finally managed to chase down a Wii game console. It was at the local Circuit City store a week ago Sunday. I, along with about 15-20 other people arrived well before they opened to get our box.

It took no time at all to hook up to the home theater system, and I popped in the included sports games. I played a game of bowling, then took the "age test" which put me at 7 years older than my actual age! I am quite physically fit thank you very much, so I think there is a flaw in that "test"!

I bought The Legend Of Zelda at the same time I picked up the Wii. I have played that game for hours, and I am completely hooked!

This may come as a surprise to some folks, but this is the first game console I've ever owned. I've had a computer for years, so it isn't that I didn't play games. Just never a machine that was dedicated to playing games. Combined with the 118" screen, a body can get completely immersed in playing.

So far I've clocked up over 40 hours on the thing. Luckily I've managed to find the time without it interrupting the "must do" things on my schedule. But I'm pretty sure I'm addicted!

You bet'cher bowling ball I will! Actually when I played the bowling game I could easily see releasing it to fly through the air/down the alley just like the real thing.
