The Nintendo Wii has been out for some months now, so you may have heard about the phenomenon of the Wii and the elderly. Yes, the elderly and the Wii. If you need a refresher, take a look at this article.It’s funny, the “gee, old people can play games” aspect of the article. I’ve also heard of the Wii being used in school gym classes, which is also a bit funny, but Dance Dance Revolution has been used for phys ed, so why not the Wii? The Wii seems better than Dance Dance Revolution for just the fact that a player can play different games. You don’t want to play tennis? Then, fine, there’s bowling. A gamer has more options.It is fascinating to see videogames being used in everyday life, though. I think it makes games more reputable to the general population, and also, anything that gets the general population to play games is a good thing.Especially if it gets them their exercise.
