GJ07: Wii Sports voted family favourite

A little bout of tennis just the thing to cause granny to make a racket

Nintendo's Wii Sports has been has proved rollicking fun in the sun (a bad joke that'll become relevant any second) and has scooped The Sun Family Game of the Year 2007 at this year's Golden Joysticks. Geddit? Geddit?

Wii Sports, bundled with the console at launch, introduced us to golf, boxing, baseball and tennis with a twist courtesy of the Wii Remote. It also caused a bout of cuts, bruises and black eyes thanks to Remotes flying from hands (according to comedy reports at the time).

The game beat off Guitar Hero II, LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, Mario Party 8 and Viva Piņata.
