HAHA the lsat one is the best.
the first ones the most irritating and the last ones the best
the funny thing is my daughter doesn't even want a Wii she says it's not hardcore and for wussies lmao.
My family doesn't celebrate Christmas :( We are all Catholic Christians (I personally am Agnostic) but we just don't celebrate Christmas. It's just like a normal Wednesday and Thursday right now. LUCKY BASTARDS!
His mom tells him people couldnt find wiis so they were killing themselves I Rofled because no one wants to miss all those great games
I remember when i got my 64 with mario 64. I flipped out like that too =P And the last video sucked. He should ebay that sucker ASAP!
Meepmoop, how old is she? I mean she must have got it from someone right?
that wii owners are lil kids.
actually my nephew got a 360...he is 12.... ...proof?
At least some people will enjoy them.
oh well.. i'll just watch it and laugh.
I HATE CHILDREN
I dont like the wii and nintendo for them selling their souls just for the almighty dollar, but I dont have much room to make fun of those kids because the way that first girl on there reacted when she got a Wii is the same way im going to react the night i bring home Killzone 2 from midnight launch. Yes im a 24 year old man and the feeling of bringing home Killzone 2 will be so magnificent i will jump up and down and hold it tightly to my chest and cry tears of joy
i'm 26 and will do the same :)
I'm.... 29 (for the fourth year running), and will probably do an irish jig when I get Killzone 2 in my hands... right there at the register! :-) EVERYBODY!!! LET'S RIVERDANCE!!!
" I don't like the wii and nintendo for them selling their souls just for the almighty dollar" With this economy? BWHAHAHAH. Anyway, are you ignorant? all go for money.
Let me guess, if the PS3 was absolutely killing in sales and kids reacted to getting one like on this video, you wouldn't have a problem with it? I can also assume that any other company or person that works to earn money is also "selling their souls"? Just enjoy the video for what it is.
This video brings back many childhood memories. It defiently brought a smile to my face. Happy Holidays Everybody
Someone should call Child Protective Services on all these parents for punishing their children so harshly with a Wii. However, the parents in the last video deserve a medal and a free car.
For the people laughing at this or that are bothered by this video, you must have a pretty pathetic life to let something like this bother you. Almost as pathetic as the guy who posted this story. Merry Christmas to you anyway. Hopefully you get some tolerance in your stockings from Santa.
its kinda more sad you cant just enjoy it. I know it brought back good holiday memories for me. sounds like santa saw your real side and didnt bring you a super nintendo back in the day or something. lighten up buddy...and Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!
I have no idea what you're talking about. The title of the story is about hating. That's what I'm saying is pathetic. I do enjoy seeing kids be happy at the holidays. Funny, I get 4 disagrees for standing up for children and the guy that says "I HATE CHILDREN" gets 4 agrees. Like I said. Pathetic. Where are you coming from telling me to lighten up? Edit: In case you didn't notice the title of the video: "50 Christmas Wii Flip-Outs Make You Hate Nintendo, Holidays, Children, The World"
Some kids are annoying, that's just a fact. I was excited to get a wii myself, to sell on ebay to these kids parents. Kids tend to get over excited, but I don't just have the patience for it. My niece the other day stayed with me, she wanted mcdonalds. I went there and ordered her a happy meal. Come back home, after an hour her food isn't touched and shes playing with the toy. Mcdonalds is 20 miles from me.
Yeah, that clears it up. What the heck was I thinking? Thanks, Meatnormous.
I acted crazy when I first got an SNES (but no where near as annoying as the kids in that video lol)
I wish I was still this enthusiastic about Christmas. Couldn't help but smile at the "Wii love you" part, so cheesy! Yay presents in a few hours:D Merry Christmas all
my comment somewhere up there where i said i was gonna laugh at this.. need to take that back cos actually it just made me smile, especially that last one :) ahh videogames, what joy they bring to people! and btw, omg i just now realized how UTTERLY GENIUS the name Wii is, it's the PERFECT word for kids to scream out! think about it. it's as if Nintendo planned this... it's probably a lot more fun and infinitely less awkward to scream out "WIII!!!" after opening a present, than screaming "PLAYSTATION THREEE!" or "XBOX THREESIXTYYY!"
lol. some good points
I started out cringing, but toward the end I couldn't help but be happy for them (especially the last one lol; BTW, was that baby saying "no Nintendo Wii?").
I remember when I was like 6 and got a super scope 6 and I was so excited. Nintendo stuff sure makes kids flip their lids. Someday when I have a kid they may love a Nintendo product too.
He got the 60GB with full backwards compatiblity, last one was the best
the one kid in the blue shirt and the shorts, looked about 15; was a just liiiiitle too old to be excited over a wii.
they must have been heart broken when they found out how bad it was...like me
Mine hasn't even been plugged in for 6 months. Thought about donating it to the local Childrens hospital where my fiance works, but kids get too physical with the wii. I don't want a toy make their hospital visit any longer than it has to be.
You don't like it because it is FOR kids. They are kids... .so they will like it. [email protected]
Think about the install base of the Wii (above 30 million?), now stop counting all the retards owning one and you would have... 100 people left? That's a quite small install base of normal people >_>
i think you got a disagree from one of the retards.
"50 kids finds out how little lasting value it has and curse Nintendo for selling them the gamecube with a new controller"
bubbles for you.
niice. its true though. i wish we really could see a follow up on how often they actually still play it after two months.
If the wii had a gameboy player on it, I would actually play it. I have all the final fantasy game for the GBA but hate staring at that little screen. I have them also for the playstation but the GBA versions have extra features and dungeons. Games I own for Wii, Mario Kart, Wii sports. Don't see myself investing anymore money into it.
@meatnormous Believe it or not your problem has been long solved its something called an emulator for the PC.
because their target audience is 12 and under and they don't know the difference.
I couldn't help but smile. I wish I still had a wii bit of excitement left about Christmas... yeah that was bad, sorry.
That was possibly the most scary thing I have ever seen. Do all Americans act like this at Christmas I hope not...
the last one is how i felt when i busted my ass for a month straight, working insane hours, and finally cashed my checked and walked across the street with my roommate to the gaming store and said, "yeah, i'd like to buy a Playstation 3." the best $650 i ever spent. too bad it broke on me Friday, and i have to send it in for repair, and am missing out on the LBP MGS Level Pack and all my game saves are gone, since i couldn't back up my saves and my HDD is formatted. *sigh* yeah, Merry Christmas. anyway, this video was pretty entertaining. i'm pretty sure i was just as annoying when i opened up my present and there was a Nintendo Entertainment System inside way back when. now THAT was a Christmas to remember.
my friends HDD went out on him the day COD5 came out. luckily he caught it early enough to get another one before the days end so we could still play. as soon as i got home from his house i made a backup of my HDD!
a gamecube with nothing to rave about its outdated anyway with gamecube graphic graphics
It is a kids machine, but its not outdated... the graphics aren't amazing, but nintendo doesn't really give a ---- about that. If it is outdated please tell me why it is still really difficult to get ahold of these in stores. Nintendo is making more money than microsoft or sony off their consoles... so no matter how much crap we (the gamers) dish out hate at their shift in interests... they don't care. Look at their numbers. They are plenty happy with their monies.
My head hurts after watching that...
that was a great Christmas video. Regardless of my or anyone else's opinion of the Wii, its hard to watch that without smiling. I personally had memories of getting my SNES and N64. The SNES came with Super Mario World. The best value ever. And hey, all of these kids are going to grow up which means the "hardcore" market will only become stronger in the future. Not to mention, 1080p plasma HDTVs will be much more afordable by that time. Things are really looking up for all gamers regardless of your preference.
Ha... what is this viral marketing? I thought the children weeping with joy were the best. I find the people freaking out in their mid 20's entertaining by close second.
....but no games! Maybe next year kiddies!
To be honest, I smiled a couple of times watching this vid. But the last one of the Ps3 made me smile the most :D It was beautiful.
i HATE the f****king Wii!!
i am happy for those kids at least they enter new age of gaming
Ya think it's weird they react like that? they get a gaming-console...something parents usually look down at. Ps3 or 360 would have given the same reactions. The last one is hilarious.
I'm 25 and I love the wii I have all 3 systems my fav is the ps3 my 2nd fav is the wii f the 360.
