Move all of the way to the right, spin all of the way to the left, get a strike.

Repeat 2,850 times multiplied by the number of bowls in a game (I don't bowl. I don't know the technical terms, get off mah back).

That's still impressive when you think about it to even attempt it for that long. :p

2,850 perfect games, wow.

This would be more impressive if the game weren't so easy to exploit. It's not a simulator, so it's not that hard to bowl as hard as you can to get strikes through sheer force. My younger sister might be able to do the same thing provided she had enough dedication to play enough.


Yeah but this is an 85 year old, do you know how old that is?
No offence to any 85 year olds.

Yeah, because an 85 year old will exploit a game on purpose... oh wait.

He's not 13 years old, it's highly unlikely that this was achieved by an exploit.

why would an 85 year old man hack Wii bowling?


MidnytRain2585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

I wouldn't say no 85-year-old could hack. Just because he's old doesn't mean he's dumb or innocent, but that's beside the point. The videos of the links I posted aren't hacks (though the last one is very cheap). They are examples of how easy it is to do well in bowling in Wii Sports (hopefully you actually watched them). It's not meant to be difficult or ultra-competitive. Following a simple pattern of gestures can net you a strike every time without much effort.

Lol! My grandad plays it too. But I don't think he's that good.
