Wii - helping my MS, or an excuse to spend money? I'm okay with either way.

So, I read and read that Wii can help people with multiple sclerosis. Well, as a 23-year-old with a deep love for MarioKart I have to say that justifying spending hundreds of dollars is very appealing.

Wii, Nintendo's newest video console, is so much more interactive than any other game system that it is said that playing will help with mobility and in combating fatigue. But, can't I also increase mobility with my morning yoga routine?

I want there to be more research on this. I want there to be proof that I need a Wii for my MS. I want to feel justified in this giant purchase. Yes, I just bought MarioKart64 again and an extra controller to feed my need for Nintendo, and yes I already own a GameCube. Should I buy a Wii and just feel good about it whether it's for "health reasons" or just because I think it sounds awesome?

Can I have my cake and eat it, too?

  1. Three reasons to buy a Wii:

    1.You can make new friends.
    2.When it gets too cold or icy in Denver to go out, you can just whip out that Wii.
    3.Think about how many DBQs you won't be able to buy since you already spent it all on your Wii.

    Now go buy a Wii.
