Watch you don't have someone's eye out with that

Everyone loves a good scare story, don’t they? I’m sure we all recall the tales of SNES games making kids have fits in the early ‘90s and the relatively flimsy evidence supplied to support this theory. Well, it seems that history is repeating itself.

The Wii has been so popular and successful a backlash was almost inevitable. We’re all aware of the early reports of people breaking their TV sets with poorly-secured Wiimotes, but now a US news site is claiming that too much Wii is bad for you in a physical sense, too.

32 links to the infamous 'Wii Have a Problem’ site, which showcases the various injuries Wii owners have accumulated over the past year or so and attempts to portray these painful cuts, bruises and black eyes as normality for your average Nintendo fan.

Anyone with any sense should come to the conclusion that the individuals that are posting this gruesome images are probably a few sandwiches short of a picnic; if you swing your Wiimote around so hard you actually start to cut yourself on furniture or hit people in the face, then not only should you not be allowed near a Wii, but you probably shouldn’t be anywhere near other human beings.

A little common sense goes a long way, shame so few people seem to possess any!
