Item: Video games illustrate Nation's love of laziness: Nintendo's recent ploys for profit cheapen actual involvement/Alex Gratzer, WSU Daily Evergreen
More Info: Nintendo is doing the world a lot of favors these days. Instead of simply producing mindless racing and shoot-em-up games, they want people to get their priorities straight. The Wii console allows a slew of apparently constructive interactive activities, including exercising and instrument playing. It�s all part of Nintendo�s revolutionary plan to get people active and productive without having to get off the couch. The video game guru's latest threat, "Wii Music," allows gamers to play up to 60 different instruments by simply flailing the controls in whichever way the instrument requires. Let's call it faux music class.
Question: Do you or your kids play video games? How much?
