Wii would like to play


We got a little carried away during the New Years Holiday. One of my sister-in-laws who is strongly opposed to happiness (happiness=video games)(j/k) borrowed a Wii and brought it to the in-laws house and all 30+ people had a shot at playing it. Here are a few pictures of the outcome. After getting worked by Trina,(top row,middle) now I know how she spends her time up at Utah State. A wonderful thing has happened through all this: my family is beginning to see the joys of video games. For those of you who are stuck in a similar situation, with family that doesn't appreciate the occasional video game, all I can say is don't give up hope. They will come around. Just keep being a good example. Don't force them to play video games. Don't make them feel guilty about not participating. Just keep playing. Don't socialize with them. Don't stop doing what you know is right just to make them feel more comfortable. Start that next game. The dishes can wait. Keep in mind that you must love them and always be willing to share your controller if they ever decide to come around.

  2. Just wanted to say that the Wii is going to be supported because it requires you to do more than just sit on the couch with a controller. You know we accept you anyway!

  4. haha, very funny :). You might be surprised to hear this but I did play guitar hero once and I used to play Mario Brothers a lot when I was a kid...I'm just not into it any more, just like i'm not really into tv, drugs and other meaningless/senseless things :).
