Alright members I need your feedback. I just bought off ebay a Wii

Big jump for me in gaming since my last system was a N64
7 years ago.

I'm wondering about general input...pros and cons

Also wanted to buy Mario Kart and possibly Guitar Hero or Rock Band

Not even sure how it all works and how it hooks up to my TV and sound system. I think it comes with instructions.

Thanks ahead of time.....

Pro'*: Almost everything is motion based, wireless, can download oldschool Nintendo games, has the great games from Nintendo you're used to.

Con'*: Almost everything is motion based, graphics aren't on the same level as XBOX 360 or PS3, some of the games that are the Wii are terrible.

I still remember my first video game. I got a booklet with the 110 lines of ROM BASIC in it to load Pong onto my Commodore VIC20 computer (1981). I had to load the program to a cassette recorder the computer used as a tape hard drive and reload it each time I wanted to play it. You couldnt load programs permanantly at the time. It processed with only 5k RAM. Both players had to sit in front of the keyboard. The next year premade cassettes with Space Invaders and Missile Command were introduced.

Ahh, I had a vic20 too. Had a tape drive. Got magazines with the code for games and I would type it in.

The card was stuck in the garage door.
