I didn't have it as bad as those waiting for the PS3, I only had a 10 hour wait in line. Why did I do this? I'm somewhat of a Nintendo fan boy. The Nintendo takes me back to my younger days of spending hour upon hour of playing Zelda on the original NES. There are some franchise games, namely Mario, Zelda, and Metroid, that I will always purchase the new Nintendo console for. When I first started reading about what eventually became the Wii, I was skeptical. Surely this new way of controlling games was nothing more than a gimmick. We had all seen the PowerGlove. So, after waiting most of a day standing in line, was it worth it? Two words: HELL YES! This system is awesome. The console itself is a perfect size: about as small as a gaming console can be. The game play on the Wii is MUCH better than I every expected. Zelda aside, I've already had hours of fun smacking a ball around in some heated games of tennis. Wii Bowling is addictively fun, with controls about as realistic as you can get, complete with twisting your wrist as you release the ball to add spin. Unfortunately I don't think the Nintendo will overpower the PS and Xbox powerhouses, but I think this is a great comeback for Nintendo! If you've been considering a Wii, I highly recommend it!

Is there really a version of Super Mario Bros. that plays on this? I really lost track of time playing that over the years.

The new Super Mario, Super Mario Galaxy, won't be released until next year. One of the nice features of this console, that I've not tried yet, is the ability to download and play many (most?) of the previous console games, all the way back to the NES. I've not tried it yet, but I would asume that all the previous Super Mario games will be availble for download.
