Actually when he says he wants to play games, he's asking ME to play, so that he can control the remote. There's one button on the remote that's constantly used - to continue the game (after some instructions) and to make the selection. It's not that difficult. When the screen shows the "A" button (to continue to the next screen), he just need to press the remote. So he's always on the look-out for the "A" button. When we need to make a selection (e.g. Quit or Retry), we just tell him "Q" or "R", then he'll point and press to select.

Only when we're using Wii Fit, he can have full control of the remote. If we play the basic games, we'll need the remote control to play. So he's got nothing to do. Luckily at this point of time, he's not too interested in the games. Just wants to control the remote. So there's less fighting between the kids as one is playing and one is the remote controller. :-)
