So, tax return coming in the not so distant future. I'm on the fence about getting a Wii. It's either a new PC, a the Zombie U bundle, or laser eye surgery. Try and talk me into a Wii U.

Make 3 lists with the positive things/games you are interested in, pick the list that look the best.

The best advice you will ever get is to decide for yourself.
Only you can decide if it's better to get a new PC, a Wii U or fixing your eyes.

As much as I'd like to see you ripping Zombie U to shreds I'd say PC and get a Wii U when there's a price cut and maybe better games.

Of those three I would take the eye surgery. Not needing glasses again is so much better as it is something you will use and enjoy all day. After that I would say the PC (unless you already have a good/decent one and then... why?) and last the Wii-U. I have mine and I like it but there aren't a lot of games for it right now (like anything at launch) so waiting for more might be a good idea.

Sure sign you are a nerd: The beginning of AC/DCs "Thunderstruck" always makes you think of Lion-O swinging his sword around.

New PC:
+better PC (maybe)
+productivity (maybe)
-all the things that comes with getting a new PC
-expenses to upgrade down the road

Eye Surgery
++good eyesight without glasses
-chances are you will need glasses again a few years later
-risk of permanent damage to eyes

Wii U

+new system to play exclusives on
+fun (maybe)
-comparing a console to eye surgery



As someone who had eye surgery before, I'm now back to wearing contacts. Mind you really weak contacts, but I still need them.

Hmm, doesn't laser eye surgery cost in the thousands? Technically, you could get both a ZombiU bundle and a new PC for the price it costs for the surgery, but then that's less money towards that surgery should you still go for that later on.

Laser eye surgery costs roughly $500 per eye, so I'm more or less looking at either $500 on the Wii U ive I've preordered Wind Waker HD, a grand on a very powerful pc so I don't need a next gen console, and a grand on fixing my vision. Really bad at making decisions involving money, hence the request for advice. So please, Foppe, go away and bother someone who gives a **** about your noncommittal, meaningless responses.
