* AudienceThe intended audience of this evaluation are those skeptical of video games. Many older adults are leery of video games and see them as a waste of time.

The Wii is not only a machine for playing video games but is an interactive experience for the user, allowing him/her to become submerged in the video game with its unique interactive controls. By creating a uniquely interactive gaming system, the player is forced to get up off the couch and physically move around to guide their on-screen character. The end result is an amazing workout, something refreshing in a country of couch potatoes.
* AppealsI plan to use logical and emotional appeals. As an avid video game player, (I've been playing video games for 22 years) I can intelligently discuss almost all aspects of video games.
* Counter ArgumentsSome "hard core" gamers will counter that the Wii is targeted to a younger audience and will not market itself to a more mature audience. While the Wii may be lacking in gory video game titles, it is a family machine that is intended for veterans and novices alike. There are still plenty of games for more experienced gamers to enjoy.
