I just bought a Wii and it has totally changed my gamer attitude, and I wasn't even a gamer to start with. No more button mashing anymore - arm-swinging and flailing with some actual hand-eye coordination is what it's all about.

Of course with all the arm-thrashing, the controllers are bound to gain critical velocity and boldly go where no controller has gone before.

I guess I now need to bullet-proof my entertainment center, shatter-proof my windows and put padding on my walls.... Or maybe not - here's how a short fishing line can go a long way towards protecting you from yourself :).
