Times Magazine has Wii Sports listed as #1 game of 2006

We all know that Wii sports is amazingly addictive and apparently Time Magazine agrees. Recently the publication has named Nintendo's sports collection #1 game of 2006. Here is an excerpt from the magazine:

1. WII SPORTS (for Wii)
There is no possible way to say this enough times: great graphics don’t make great games. Perfect Dark Zero looked like a Titian, but it was a snooze. Wii Sports—a mini-sports anthology that includes golf, boxing, tennis, baseball and bowling—looks like Colecovision. The little guys on the screen don’t even have arms. But it’s hilarious, and it shows off the power of the motion-sensitive Wii controller to put you right in the game, sweating and yelling and trying crazy spins and lunges and angles. The tennis game alone is worth the price of admission. Which is nothing, since it comes free with the Wii.
