Golden Age Golds

Take Advantages of Your GOLDEN AGE

Loved Wii Sports? Then don’t sleep on Nintendo Switch Sports this Prime Day

I’m the proud owner of a Wii and Wii Fit board that sits in my family home, covered in dust. Why don’t I get rid of it? (Who are you, my mother?) Because that little white box holds a bunch of memories. Memories of escaped nunchucks flying through the air, of my Wii Fit avatar getting visually rotund when I stood on it after years of neglect and, most importantly, of unnecessarily running backward and forwards in my living room trying to hit a virtual tennis ball in Wii Sports.

Over 15 years (screams) have passed since the height of Wii Sports, when kids and adults all over the globe pretended to throw bowling balls and took out ornaments trying to hit virtual baseballs. And, since then, there has been a range of games trying to encourage us to get moving – but few had the mass appeal that Wii Sports had.
