Nope, I definitely do not use it. I find that it just gets in the way, and if you don't put it on, then it flaps all around the place.

It depends on the game, if I'm playing Wii Sports I will, cause people tend to go crazy while playing that game.

No, it became a hassle for things like VC games and guitar hero I eventually just lost the wriststrap.

I think the only games I put it on for is Wii Sports and Wii Fit. But when people are over, I put it on every time, so they do. I don't need them breaking my TV.

Of course they made a near indestructible object and stupid people can't figure out that their tv's will break before it does. I've dropped a Wii-mote out of a twenty story building(I actually had to get the block blocked off by cops to do it, so no one would get injured and luckily the Hotel Manager said I could use his building) then went and met my friend at the elevator and played SSBB with it. Its got a few scratches on it and thats it, oh and I lost the back to it.

It definitely depends on the game. But I don't understand the shet about broken TVs. It's not Nintendo's fault; It's the fault of the idiots with butterfingers who clearly didn't even put ON the wrist strap. I still have my original wrist straps, and they're fine, as long as you adjust them whenever they loosen.

And even if you're playing without the straps, you're supposed to hold onto the remote tightly, especially with games like Wii Sports!!

Some people are just so stupid...
