Happy Birthday, Nintendo Wii

by Kevin on

It has been two years since the Nintendo Wii came out in America.

It’s been a nice two years, hasn’t it? I know I complain a fair bit about the lack of games for the little guy (or gal? Does anyone think of their Wii as a lady?), but I have shared some good times and bad with him (her). I’ve played Mario Kart with Nintendorks on the East Coast, Wii Sports with my grandfather, Wii Play with random people at the mall, and Smash Brothers with my best friends. Yes. The system has a fairly silly name. Yes. You look like an idiot sometimes when you play. Yes, there have been like no fucking games this Christmas season. But goddammit, we’re all still Nintendorks. Every time I play the damn thing, it makes me happy.
