When the Nintendo Wii was released, it caused a major uproar at stores that holiday season and continued to for the next couple of years. YouTube was littered with hilarious videos of kids getting (or being grounded from) their Wii, and it quickly became a console that adults wanted too. The Wii serves as the modern day family game night and gets everyone off the couch and moving…and hey, it sure beats playing Scrabble with your dad.
