I think it depends on the game. My daughters will play on PBSkids.org and will play Elmo on the Wii, but they are word building/phonics games that have some educational value. Their other favorite is Chuck E. Cheese on the Wii, which still teaches some math, budgeting, decision making, sequencing, and is physical.
If they can learn something from the game, I wouldn't be as strict on the limits as I would be with "war" or "zombie" games.
