    The DS is awesome. The New Mario Bros. is an incredible game

    i agree, the new mario bros is pretty cool. my daughter has it on the ds. i hope it comes out on the wii.

    my daughter has a wii which i dont play much but i gotta say the gaming experience on the wii is a lot different than the 360,ps2,ps3,etc.... where as on the wii most of the games you have to do more than move your thumbs. the wii is more interactive and some people feel better about getting up and moving their body around instead of sitting on their @ss for three hours moving just their thumbs and eyes. i have madden on the wii and you have to move your arm in a throwing motion to pass, lift your arms up to catch, and so on. i think the wii tries to really put you in the game.

    The unfortunate thing is people think that by moving a little with the Wii they are getting exercise.

    Well on the Wii Sports game such as the tennis game and boxing you are getting excercise. And the Wii fit game with the balance board, you will be worn out after doing that. That is definitely excercise. I would rather my child be up moving around while playing video games opposed to just sitting the entire time. It is a fact that moving your body will burn more calories than just sitting in a chair. So therefore I think you can call it excercise. No it's not a mile run around the neighborhood or swimming laps in the pool but it is a mild excercise.

    It's not enough, that's the point. People are thinking it is enough.

    They did a study on the Wii Fit and came to the conclusion that basically if you just got your lazy arse on a treadmill for 20 minutes you'd burn the calories you will with the wii in weeks. lol

    That sonic/mario olympics game is rough though. Arms feel like jelly after a few sprints.
