So many of you have tried Nintendo's brain games? I'm surprised. I'll be honest, I really don't see the appeal. I play video games to relax and not think. Well, check that, I play them to think, but to think outside of the box. I can quantify and qualify traditional data in my daily life if I want that kind of thinking. How often during my day must I come up with a way to reassemble the Triforce, climb to the top of a tall tall mountain, or covertly maneuver past Space Pirates? That's what I'm after when I play. I solve enough business-type problems at my day job, thanks.
