How about Wii Music.

That game as a present would be an insult.

This list isn't complete without the Wii console iself.

A game you can't stand, and someone ends up buying it for you

...You know I thought this would be about games majorly, but come on I was a bit disappointed D:

Out of this list I enjoy quite a few of these things, a book, clothes, gift cards, and tea. [Salad spinner wtf!? =.=]

Anyway books are great they can pretty much be the storyline of a game, just without the interaction of mashing buttons and all that. Plus since I'm artistic I guess that's why I like them :3, Clothes well just because when your 19 your still growing so clothes are a big help, at least you yourself don't have to buy them. gift cards just because I don't trust my parents to get me a game >_> sister yes since she is as much of a heavy gamer as myself, but parents and grandparents no.

As for tea...Well I just like tea, but if they get it for me it better be at least a year's supply or something; but overall I would like to say WTF for including tea -.-'

I am a hardcore gamer, i go to the gym, i wear expensive clothes.
This article is aimed at hardcore gamers from the 90ies, a modern day hardcore gamer is more like me.

Agreed! Not every gamer out there is a slobbering mess of sock sweat and cheetos (no disrespect to those who are).

I would think now more than ever gamers really need fat wallets to be able to afford gaming. And hos. And they are in a lot better shape, not Levis Model shape but okay shape.

I happen to play five-a-side football weekly.

...I, too, am a hardcore gamer. I also have a treadmill and a recumbent exercise bike in my apartment. I exercise regularly and am in decent shape. I don't have a body-builder physique, but I'm not overweight and dying. I occasionally enjoy reading, but I can't always find the time to read. This isn't so much because of my gaming habits, but because I also have plenty of other things to do with my time. I also happen to like tea (iced tea, that is)... and generally felt this article had promise, but missed the boat.

Fox, I feel ya. I can bench almost twice my weight and my watch is more expensive than my launch 360. The old 'hardcore gamer' stigma is gone.

Seriously though, I was glad to read an article that didn't say.
