2006 feels like a different lifetime nowadays, but it was then that Nintendo released the Wii, the world’s very first motion-controlled gaming system.

8 Disc Golf Or Frisbee Dog
The first time I played disc golf in real life, I was, in a word, terrible. Despite careful tutorial from my extremely patient date, eager to share his passion for a sport where he’s won tournaments, I still almost managed to launch my disc into traffic.
