Chicks dig Nintendo!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Nintendo is good for your game. I don't mean your video game, I mean your "getting laid" game. If you ever hear a guy say the word "Playstation", it's almost always followed by a groan from the females in the room. Let's face it, Playstation is for nerds. Since the PS2 came on the market, girls have been disgusted with video games. To them, Playstation translates to guys hunched over, playing Final Fantasy or Madden and spending hours of their lives being nerds. That's right, Playstation doesn't get women. Walk into a room full of chicks and tell them you've been playing Playstation all day. See how many wanna come back to your crib and play with you. The answer will be none.

So what makes Nintendo different? It all started with the original NES. That was a system that reached out to more then just guys. If you are in your mid to late 20's, your girlfriend probably owned a Nintendo. That was step one. Along came the DS and it became step 2. There are 400 MILLION, DS systems sold worldwide. How many people are there in the world? A couple billion? Almost everyone has a DS at this point. Guess what that means? Girls play the DS. I know this from personal experience. Lots of ladies love the DS.

Nintendo knew they were onto something so they created the Wii. The Wii is breaking boundaries that even the DS didn't. Old people are playing the Wii. But what's even more fascinating, is the WOMEN are playing the Wii. If you walk into a bar, tell some girls your having a Wii party, you might be surprised they WILL come with you. Now don't go home and pop in Zelda (you nerd), but you can play any of the Wii party games including the Mario titles.

Check out this recent article, Wii Gaming Parties (wrote by a woman) about the trend of Wii hot spots popping up. Fight clubs, Tennis tournaments, bowling leagues. ALL on the Wii. Guess who's showing up to these events? Not the Sony Fanboys/Star Trek nerds, but actual living, breathing, SKINNY, GIRLS! Women. Chicas! That's right, chicks dig the Wii.

So for the first time in the history of video gaming, you finally can talk to girls about games. You can get them to play games. Just make sure you have one of Nintendo's little white systems and you might actually be able to play video games and get LAID because of it.
