I had one when they first came out, sold it after I got sick of it and made a profit.  My gf has been wanting one for awhile, so we picked one up today (Monster Hunter was the driving factor for me). Shes into the Mario and resort type games, I want Zelda, Monster Hunter and games like that (single player type). Any other ones you guys recommend, I would appreciate it.  I haven't been following the Wii, so I have no idea whats out. Since I trust the collective opinion, I figured I'd ask here instead of doing my own research (I'm just lazy). icon_eek

Based on your preferences, I think you'll find Super Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Zelda: Twilight Princess to be excellent choices.  I particularly recommend the last one: Twilight Princess successfully replaced Majora's Mask as my favorite game in the Zelda series.

You might also enjoy Okami - a Zelda-like game steeped in Japanese mythology, about a revived wolf goddess who can change reality by painting different changes.

If you haven't played Animal Crossing on the DS, you absolutely need to play it on the Wii. Super Mario Galaxy was awesome. I personally loved No More Heroes (only played the first since I sold my Wii before the 2nd came out). In fact, I loved NMH 1 so much I'm waiting for my shipment of the PS3 HD import version of it.

I was let down by Super Smash Bros Brawl; I really liked Melee on the GC a lot more.

My personal favorite games on the Wii are the lightgun shooter types. The genre has made a total 180 simply because they work so well on the Wii (as far as the controller goes anyway - the console's lack of power is nothing to sneeze at).

I love AC, it was one of my favorite games on the gamecube! I'll check out No More Heroes too, thanks

A good start, yeah. Then there's a set of Resident Evil games, House of the Dead (including the extremely campy but ton of fun Overkill), quite a few arcade ports (Ghost Squad), and more ports coming soon (LA Machinegunners and Gunblade NY).

You may have to search for it, but owning a Wii and not having Metroid Prime Trilogy is just wrong.

Resident Evil 4.  By far the definitive version of that game.

I had it for the GC and found it was pretty hard. All I remember is that I couldn't get past the dude with a bag over his head.

Muramasa - Demon Blade <-- Go Get this now

Silent Hill - Shattered Memories

Little King's Story

No More Heroes 1 & 2

Red Steel 2

Sky Crawlers

Deadly Creatures was a lot of fun and can be had cheap now too

De Blob is another action/platformer/puzzle style game

I enjoyed both Excite Truck and Excite Bots for arcade style racing

Madworld is short but sweet

PunchOut! is a must own, it's not the longest game around, but you will come back to it for the challenges and for the simple yet perfectly balanced system.

Boom Blox and its sequel will be good for both SP and MP with your GF

I really liked Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobos Dungeon - Rogue-like game if that's your thing.


Let's See What else. . .

Lightgun style games

House of the Dead Overload

Ghost Squad

Dead Space

Both the Resident Evil lightgun games

Platform style:

Mario Galaxy

Boy and His Blob

Lost Wind <--2 games on Wiiware

Cave Story <-- Wiiware download



If you haven't played the Metroid Prime series, the bundled version can be had cheap, and that's 3 good games.


I hope you can find some stuff from all of that. Despite popular opinion there is a lot of great gaming to be had on the Wii, and you should be able to find something or quite a few somethings.

http://wii.ign.com/index/top-reviewed.html

that should help too, by no means the best resource, but it list a lot of good games worth checking out.

Also, go get some games that come with the Wii Motion Plus. Once you start using it you will wish that it was in every game.

The Wii version is significantly easier (too easy, if you ask me)

If you like baseball and/or sports games then check out Power Pro Baseball.  Fantastic game.  I believe there are two but I only played the first one.  Just get a gamecube controller for it as it's wonky on the wii remote.
