Doctors Warn About Wii-Related Injuries, Coin the Term Wii Knee

Wii Knee to Be the New Hot Video Game Injury

It's not going to be all eggnog and booze-related damage done this Christmas, if you plan on playing the Wii with your family over the holidays. Doctors have coined a new term for Wii-related injuries, "Wii Knee."

The doctors say these Wii-caused aches and pains (which, despite the name, can affect any body part) occurbecause certain Wii games (like the classic, Wii Sports) encourage people to mimic playing sports. Some people may not be used to exercise, or there may be older folks who try to keep up with their kids.

Either way, it's a bummer to be hurt by playing video games — which some of you can attest to. As for those who are unused to exercise, but don't want to miss out on the fun: Might I interest you in the Wii Fit?

I haven't heard too many complaints about the Wii except that it cost too much. There are a lot of pieces to it, depending on what games you choose. I just bought my mother two remotes in one box with a game that cost $50 and that was considered as on sale. I was told that on any other day it would have cost a heck of a lot more.

I can believe that. I am always exhausted after playing Wii Sports and my bad shoulder is always super achy. That said, I LOVE my Wii Fit.
