I found "Wii for Dummies" to be very informative. Especially since I am new to the world of "Wii." It is also very "user friendly." I have learned so much by reading this book.

You idiots, you stupid cretins, the Nintendo switch is so much better than the wii. Although the wii is a good platform, it is getting to be old. The wii U was a total screw-up, so the nintendo switch better be good.
