Just ask the few remaining people at Jay’s party last night, who were the Apollo Creed to my Rocky (in Rocky 2), the Frazier to my Ali (the two times when Ali won), and the whoever to my Tyson (back when he was a good boxer and a rapist, as opposed to just a rapist).
Yes, that’s right, the Golden Jew gave into the Wii, at least for one night. Although disgusted by the fact my persona was referred to as a “Mii” in Wii Sports, I was amused by the fact I was punching out a woman Mii. I think that might have been what fueled my victory. She also had glasses. Unrealistically, they did not break and force shattered glass into her eyes.
I was very impressed with Wii Bowling, finding that the ball actually curved the exact same way it does when I bowl for real. In fact, I was able to take advantage of this the way only a gamer can to eventually assure myself multiple spares in a row. Wii boxing was also a lot of fun, although I think there was a fair bit of flailing that led to success there.
Ironically, when I was at E3, I only played the “complex” Wii games, such as Project HAMMER and Red Steel, both of which I was unimpressed with. It was the simple Wii Sports that captured my love last night (which I viewed as beneath me at E3). I know Zelda is a “complex” Wii game that is quite popular, but my question to you Wii owners: do you find yourself preferring the “simple” games over the “complex” ones? Or is my experience unique? Are there other good “simple” Wii games besides Sports?
