Are Wii Screwed?

Gamers sit up and take notice! Do you, as a gamer, want your mom or grandpa to be an audience for game developers? Do you even want to see geriatrics flailing their flabby arms around or doing mock yoga in front of the television?

We've still got our Killzone's, Halo's, Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy's, and God of War's. No need to hate or despair because mom, dad, or the grandparents are playing too. That's ridiculous.
