Dont know if the conversation is still relevant, but we have a Wii. We use it all the time. We have Wii resort which has the boxing, frisbee, canoe-ing, tennis, ping-pong, wake boarding, golfing, etc... cool stuff, like you had mentioned with the boxing, it can be a work out. We also have things like Call of Duty, Need For Speed, love those too! We also used it to download the original Super Mario from Super Nintendo. We have a few other Mario games too, the kids love all of them. For family stuff, we all play Rock Band, we have the drum kit guitars and mic. We will very often play golf on Wii Sports after dinner.
We bought it last year for Christmas and still use it regularly. I like to get on Need For Speed in the evenings after kids go to bed, even just to play for a half hour or so.
I have no issues with the remote, and going to something like the 360 remotes or even PS3 is totally foriegn to me now.

Of course there are loaded guns in the house. I have a loaded fire extinguisher too I hope I never have to use.
