I have one and its good fun.

Games i've enjoyed the most:
Super Mario Galaxy - Platformer
Super Smash Bros Brawl - Fighting
Mario Kart Wii. - Racing
WarioWare Smooth moves - Heaps of mini games

Yes they are all part of the classic nintendo series, i haven't been too adventurous with picking games. Wii sports is great for when other people are around also.
Suits me fine since any 'hard core' games i play are on the PC.

I am one of those "adult gamers" who have a Wii and I love it. No one in my age group would ask me ever to come over to play Xbox or PS3 but I have a Wii and friends who badly want to beat me in Wii Tennis and Bowling. So yeah as a fun factor I love the Wii more. The Xbox has better games and the PS3 has better graphics (better console allround) but I love the party fun you can have with the Wii.

I love:

Super Mario Galaxy
Super Smash Bros Brawl
Resident Evil 4
Wii Sports
Metroid Prime 3:Corruption

These are the only games I have played so far.

+1 from me.

Have just recently got my hands on a Wii and it's a great console, especially to compete with others.

I have a PS3 and Wii, I wouldn't be without either. For gaming I'd rate the Wii though - spend more time gaming on it (attracts people who wouldn't normally be into gaming either).

Add my vote to the Wii too (we're mid-late 30s)

We had a PS3 and sold it and got a Wii.  The Wii is used at least 20 times more than the PS3 ever was!
Even the wife plays it and beats me every now and then on Mario Kart Wii.

If you want realistic graphics, sound and a cinema like experience then the PS3 is great but for 'fun' and family and friends you cannot beat the Wii.  It's a great leveler, anyone can play Wii.
Best game is Mario Kart Wii - we play online and race our neices in the UK.

Yup, Mario Kart Wii is awesome (even splurged for the steering wheels).
