The first time I saw avatars on the Wii, I thought they were utter rubbish. Then Microsoft trashed their interface with them. I've put up with them for years and now I've just had it with them. To top it all, I am 41 years old and my avatar hangs about with a f......... teddy bear !!!!!!!!! Microsoft, if you ever want me to buy one of your Xbox's again I suggest you either drop avatars completely or at least let us switch the abominations off !!
