Mother, what have you done?




So, I am visiting my mom's house (yay divorced parents) and I recently learned that she bought herself a Wii for Christmas. When I asked her what games she had, she pointed me to this pile. I feel sick.
 
I do hope Wii Sports Resort is half-way decent.

Let me tell you that yes, Wii Sports Resort is pretty good. Can't say that for anything else there.

I dunno how the EA fitness game is; in comparison to Wii Fit, it's certainly cheaper, but I can't remember how it compares functionality-wise. 
 
As for everything else...I'm so sorry.

Wii Sports Resort is great!  Active isn't bad.  And family feud, while a horribly made game, seems to still be kinda fun from the quick look.

Just be grateful that you got a mum who plays games.

You should point her towards Dead Space and Silent Hill, right?

What's wrong with Trivial Pursuit? Board games are fun, but in electronic form? THAT MEANS THEY'RE AWESOME!

Dude, Active is effing awesome.

Well it could be worse, when I saw the pictures I thought maybe you got bought those games for Christmas, now THAT would suck...

Is it just me who loves that box art for Summer Sports?

Wow those are some terrible games, anyway, just be glad that you have a mom that likes videogames and show her the good games and get her to stop buying that crap

Ah sweet your mom got a Wii! When i come over after your done with your visit I'm going to have to rent me a Mario game or two to play when we are done doing our thing. Sorry i saw the opening and went for it, wait that just sounds sexual too...
 
Seriously though try looking at it this way, she is getting into video games which could lead to you guys having some fun later on if you can get her into one of the couple Wii games that are actually good and not just shovel ware. This is of course as apposed to looking at the disgusting pile of filth she bought and being ashamed. It's all about your perspective of the situation.

I think I'll go out on a limb here and say she's probably not that interested in MadWorld, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and No More Heroes. If she likes them then great. 
 
But she didn't buy all junk. Wii Sports Resort is great and the Wii Fit/EA Sports Active combo can't be that bad.

Game Party isn't too bad, especially for her tastes most likely.

looks like a great choice to me.
 
i don't think your mom would be interested in mario or no more heroes over trivial pursuit.
