I’m happy to report that I am still loving my Wii, and have been playing Wii tennis at least 5 times a week. I’m also happy to report that I don’t believe I make these kinds of faces when I play, but then again I can’t really be certain of that since, as of yet, I have not been photographed while I play.
Anyway, for those of you who have Wii tennis, you’ll appreciate that I’m in the 700 point range, which is just 300 points shy of being considered “pro.” What the Wii makers probably didn’t anticipate is the false sense of sports aptitude that people could develop as a result of playing these games. For instance, I could easily convince myself that due to my almost-pro-ness at Wii tennis, I could be a good tennis player in actual life. Mr. Mock doesn’t hesitate to point out that this is far from the truth and that I would probably suck at actual tennis. I know he’s right, but it’s very easy to get all full of yourself when you beat the computer generated opponents who have well over 1000 points.
Mr. Mock is super super good at Wii tennis. He’s got over 1200 points I think. He’s such a show-off.
Can you guys recommend some other good sports games? ARE there other good sports games? I’m totally not into any kind of war games or dungeons and dragons types of games. I just want stuff that feels like exercise. Suggestions?
