People who are deterred because they feel stupid waving a remote around are dumbasses. Get over yourself and have a little fun, tough guy. That IS the purpose of gaming in the first place.
And graphics are not everything. Games don't have to look uber realistic to be entertaining or of high quality. Some people bother me when they are so focused on visual presentation that they completely ignore how much fun some games can be. Maybe people who began their gaming in the PS2 generation are destined to think that way... but graphics are only a complement to solid gameplay, without which the most beautiful of games can be some of the worst to play. Nintendo has never claimed that they would revolutionize the graphics side of gaming. They've always been on the functionality and fun factor side of development. It's easy to call it "kiddie" because it doesn't spray blood and yell curse words in every title, but that's just a cop out. Give it a shot, it's a hell of a lot of fun.
