Would a younger child more appreciate getting board games or a Nintendo Wii for Christmas?

A younger child would be more appreciative of a Nintendo Wii for Christmas. That is, if one is referring to today's society. Fifty years ago, a younger child would be very appreciative of a board game for Christmas. Younger children in families want to be included in his/her older siblings happenings. Therefore, anything that would promote quality time between the younger and older children would be appreciated.
