This should probably go in a different thread, but anyway,

I've got a Wii and its perfect for casual gaming, and what I mean by that is like at a party or playing with people who aren't so much into games. The sports games like bowling, golfing, boxing, pool are really a lot of fun cause everyone can play and its easy to learn. I got mine so I could play some games with my wife and daughter as they found the PS2 controller too hard to control. There's also a few other great games like Mario Party, Mario Galaxy and Wario, which is friggin hilarious! Theres always people who say that its too gimmicky, but they are always the ones who join in when they see how much fun we're having.

However, if you want to play more serious games like RPGs and such I would suggest a different console. I've got a PS2 and saving up for a PS3.
