Nintendo Favorites

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on December 8, 2009

I was never a fan of video games, growing up. In fact, I never thought we would own a gaming system, let alone three. The Wii, DS, and DSi are great family-friendly systems, each with it’s own unique draw. I am happy to share our favorite games with you now, and can recommend each as a great gift idea for the game-lover.


Now that you’ve had a chance to peruse through our game library, I would like to offer you a chance to win a few of our favorites, courtesy of the creators of each game.

Here are the games up for grabs (all shown above)::

Pajama Party, Wii
Astro Boy, Wii
Secret Saturdays, Wii
Ben 10 Alien Force, Wii
Dragonology, DS (includes Dragonology companion booklet)

Here’s what you must do to enter:
.

  • Leave me a comment, by 9pm (pst) on December 15th, telling me which game you would like to win and why. You may leave up to five comments – one for each game, but you MUST make sure you check out each game, so you know exactly why you’d like to win it.

For additional entries, daily, you may:

  • Link to this giveaway on your blog and/or Facebook wall. Be sure you leave me a separate comment for each link.
  • Tweet about this giveaway and include a link, using the hashtag #D2Dgvwy, as many times as you like before next Tuesday night, and leave me a separate comment for each tweet.

FIVE winners will be selected at random, each to receive the game of their choice. Winners will be emailed and will then have 24 hours to respond before forfeiting their prize.

Compensated Giveaway

I have always said that MY kids wouldn’t have video games. Famous last words. I got myself a Wii for exercise and now the boys have games too. And, even worse, I actually got DS for my son for Christmas this year. It’s the only thing he asked for. So I would like the Dragonology game for his stocking if I won. Thanks.

My first choice would be Astro Boy for the Wii. My husband played this game at a friends house once and loved it. I think he could teach my daughter the two player version since she loves playing Wii as well. It sounds and looks like so much fun and is not at all gruesome like some combat games are nowadays. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

My fourth choice would be Ben 10 Alien Force for the Wii. The show is actually entertaining. My daughter watches it sometimes and does indeed like it! I think she would enjoy learning how to play this game with her dad. The combat does not look rough at all. And we love aliens in my household. Thanks.

I would choose Dragonology for the DS as my last choice.
