  • I think anything that's done together as a family would count, whether it's a board game, wii, or just watching a movie together.... We got one and when we play it with our boys they laugh their butts off,lol... (We're not very good at it)

  • It can be, if played in moderation. My only fear is that some members of the family might get so caught up in it they forget it's supposed to be for entertainment! LOL!

  • I think so, just choose family appropriate games.

  • Yeah, if you are all together, and playing those crazy fun physically active games. Absolutely!!!

  • absolutely!! We play the Wii. Sometimes we do Wii bowling nights, or Family Movie nights. Its way cheaper then going bowling and going to the movies. Plus we are doing it together as a family. Its loads of fun.

  • Of course.  If you are all together, having fun and enjoying each other's company then it is quality family time.  We got one for Christmas last year and had so much fun playing with the kids.  We only had the Wii Sports and the kids just LOVE to do the bowling.

  • Not a bad choice, but usually with wii, only one or two of us are actively participating at any given time. I like board games better for family activity.

  • as long as you all do it together, just as a board game or card game
