What are your opinions on the wii vs. other video game systems?

We have NEVER allowed video games in our house. Our son is on the autism spectrum and we feel it just adds to his frustration. We are rethinking things with the wii system.

  • My son is autistic and he LOVES video games. We have a ps2 and ps3 and I like those systems because you can get about any game for them.

  • We have the Wii. It is a good one for fitness, even just useing the Wii sports game that comes with the system. But my DH does get mad at it, when he's loseing on baseball or bowling. He thinks it cheatslol. But it's a good one..I would reccomend

  • we have an xbox 360, ps3, and wii... the only system i will play is the wii... how old is your son?? maybe one of those vtech systems for him... they actually have one that is like the wii... that requires hand/eye coordination and for him to focus.... but if you are looking at getting a wii, i think they are one of the best systems out there. it makes you get off your butt. =)

  • My son has autism and has never had an interest in games until they began playing a Wii at his OT/ST sessions. Now he's asked Santa for one! :D I'm very excited about it, it's the second thing in his life he's ever asked for, so you know he's getting it! :D I'm hoping it helps.
