The last time I bought a gaming console was in November, 2001. It was an Xbox. For the last six years, I’ve used it exclusively as a DVD player.iFlickr

I bought a Nintendo Wii today. They are still in short supply. The local Fred Meyer does a raffle when they get some stock. Last night they got twelve units. The raffle was scheduled for 6:45am today, fifteen minutes before opening time. I was first in line. Eleven people showed up. Everyone got a Wii.

I also got Super Mario Galaxy and played it a bit today. It is so much fun.

If you like playing games, you should get a Wii.
