    For the Wii:

    Mario Galaxy 1 and/or 2
    Twilight Princess
    Muramasa: The Demon Blade
    Okami (if he never played it on the PS2)

    I’m playing “help take care of the newborn and toddler while desperately trying to get ready to move tomorrow morning.”Report

    I have recently been made aware that there’s a thing called Twitch, which allows people to watch other people play videogames, and that it’s wildly successful. Can someone explain to me why this isn’t the stupidest thing in the world?Report

      Dude, we just finished a period where everybody in the world was watching other people play soccer.Report

      • Kolohe in reply to Jaybird says:

        And are just finishing a period where a whole bunch of people watch other people ride bicycles for 3 weeks. (though that is more a France travelogue than anything else)Report

        I was never a HUGE gamer, but for the period when I did game, it was usually a social activity – me and someone else would take turns playing a FPS or “Crash Bandicoot” or whatever.

        I enjoyed watching someone else play as much as I enjoyed playing. Maybe more so. I’d probably get back into it, if I had anyone to play with now.Report

      not my bag, but hardly alone in terms of weird things to watch other people do.

      people watch bowling on tv.

      hell i just watched some dude sand furniture for 20 minutes.

      and of course baseball. which is like watching other people sleep, plus millions in tax subsidies.

      also chat roulette.Report

      I don’t get it either, but then I also don’t get people watching sports either. It seems like one makes about as much sense as the other.

      The one exception I have is a show like Tabletop, but they put a lot of production work into making it entertaining. Also, it’s no coincidence that most of the guests they have on the show are actors.Report

      • Glyph in reply to James K says:

        Yeah, people watch sports and those don’t even have aliens, robots or explosions; let alone alien robots exploding. If I have to watch one or the other, I know which way I’d go.Report

      So far, there have been two kinds of explanation:

      1. It’s just like when once every year ( or every few years) we watch a competition between
      the best in the world.

      2. It’s like a social thing with friends, other than not being social or with friends.Report
