The Wii can be dangerous

After playing all the circuits on mario and Sonic @ the olympics with my brother last night; my arms have died to the point where I couldn't even drive the car this morning

And yup I almost had my eye out at one point with the nunchuck lead

I feel as weak as a kitten after playing it all night. Never has a game left me like this before

Any others had injuries or dead elbows?

I smashed a vase once when plaing wii golf and have also pulled muscles. Just shows you should warm up and do stretches before playing.

At least it will help prevent obesity in children.

Then just make sure you don't use too much force and stretch something, and make sure there are no fragile objects around. I also suggest a 20 minute stretch break inbetween long hours. But that is just if you want to feel prefect later.

Guthix is right, the Wii isn't very ergonomic, nor are any game systems. Take a break every once in a while.
