I wonder if this game won't fade out after people grow tired of mimicking a tennis match or a baseball game.

The fun of video games was to work your thumbs off, but that was it. Not very physical. This Wii stuff makes me wonder.
I dread the moment when snotty nerds will be boasting that they don't need sports or excersize because they get a good workout playing Wii.

Yours in Christ,
