Happy 5th birthday to the Wii!

On the one hand, it doesn't seem like that long ago that we were all playing Wii Sports and Twilight Princess.  On the other hand, given Nintendo's five-year clockwork, it would be expected that we should get the WiiU sooner rather than later...

Some people think the Wii's motion control and casual games are some kind of downfall for gaming, or some kind of "lesser" experience.  But I've found that my gaming parties the last couple years have been possible because of accessible games, and casual gamers (and girls!) know how to have fun without feeling like they have to be skilled.  I've managed to throw gaming parties specific to particular consoles, with varying degrees of success, but turning on the Wii has never given me any doubt about whether or not I'm able to entertain my guests.  The Wii's 5th birthday is indeed something to celebrate.
