I currently do wii fit u and excerbeat. I used to do walk it out, but completed the island- that was fun.

Good tip on looking at Ebay for cheaper games. I'm not going to my gym anymore and could use the variety.

I'm also a Walk It Out fan and have been playing that for the past several weeks.

Ebay is a great place for used wii games, and so much cheaper than Amazon. I got Active Life Outdoor Challenge and am excited to try that next.

I went to the GameStop in Dothan and found a country dance for the Wii. You use the controller to move with the game and my husband can do the exercise from a chair. He can't be on his feet a lot. He loves the new game, esp. the song Down on the Chattahoochee. (we live on the Chattahoochee river.)

If there are Wii games you're interested in buying, you can buy used games at www.gamestop.com/ . The easiest way to find them on the website is to type "Wii games" in the Search field. Some/many of the games won't come with an instruction manual, but Gamestop has verified the games play. Gamestop is where I got my refurbished Wii system around the end of August. I think I've also seen used Wii games on Walmart's website.

I only have the wii fit +. I thought I had walk it out, but I can't find it. Anyway... among the wii fit + games, I like the obstacle course and if I was in better shape I'd try to get on Wipeout. : )

I know what you mean I'm all over the place when I bowl or play tennis. To keep from feeling like you are playing by yourself on ones like bowling you can do multiple players using the same controller. Then they are playing against each other. I do that with the golf.

Thanks Jeanut! Yeah, I've tried bowling from a chair. It doesn't do anything for me. If I were playing with others, then I could participate and have fun bowling from a chair.

However, I use the Wii alone, and I prefer to get SOME level of activity from whatever I'm doing. When I'm able to Wii bowl, I take a full approach the length of the room, bend and "throw" as if I were throwing a real ball. My scores are horrible, just like they were at a a bowling alley, but I feel like I'm getting some exercise.

Because my knee doesn't cooperate these days, I get more fun and activity from other Wii Sport Resort games while sitting in a chair.

Pam, if you have a straight chair with no arms you can use it for your bowling. My husband does. I've also seen seniors at the local senior center bowling from their wheel chairs.

My favorite Wii Sports Resort games are: Swordplay, Canoeing, Biking, and (if my knee will let me) Bowling. I haven't played the original Wii Sports in a few years, but my favorite was Bowling.

My favorite Wii game is Dance, Dance Revolution 2--but I haven't been able to do that for years because of a damaged knee.
