I think I am missing something here. I tried really hard to like Zelda but couldnt. I found myself enjoying Rayman Running Rabbids and Trauma Center much more. Even had my wife laughing in splits; and she usually frowns if I spend excess time on video games.. Zelda seemed tedious and slow, and frankly not going anywhere at all, or maybe I am just being daft

Action adventures aren't for everyone I guess

Yeah, although in fairness it took me a long time to really get into Zelda too. I was just kind of playing through about the first 10 hours or so, but then the story started to pick up a little and now over 30 hours in I'm thoroughly enjoying it. On the other hand, I was a little disappointed with Rayman (and I feel terrible about that because it was a Christmas present from my brother). I probably should have just skipped the story mode at first because it's really pretty weak. None of the minigames are that hard to beat so it got a little boring. It seems like it might be more fun just competing against other people for high scores though, so I'll have to pull it out again at a party.

you are right abt Rayman, it sucks to play alone. But you have to unlock them for multiplay....I only play if my wife's watching, so she can laugh at my antics and that helps me get into the the game

You've got it right there. Wii Sports has really done wonders for the Wii. This game has made the Wii THE system for parents. I can't believe how many baby boomers have shelled out the money for the system with no kids left in the house.

I guess you don't care about gameplay.

No need to troll, we don't have problem if anyone don't like Wii for various reasons but no need shove it in people's mouth whom owns Wii.

IMO, Wii brings back pure fun that I used to enjoy when I was a kid. It's good to be kid again.

[Insert generic troll comment here]

BTW, I'm highly disappointed that I couldn't find a "Troll RLY" image on the owl site. Somebody get on that.
