Kirby's Epic Yarn is great. So is New Super Mario Bros Wii. You'll also probably like Donkey Kong Country Returns.

There's really too many to list.

Great lists. I would heartily encourage you to also pick up Excitebots Trick Racing. That is a really fantastic game, and last time I played people were still playing online, which is good because the online racing/betting is fantastic! I love that you can bet game currency on the races, and then use your winnings to unlock stuff (and there's a comically large number of things to unlock.) Anyway, it's a really great game that should have done better then it did.

The Conduit is a pretty good FPS, especially considering the rarity of that genre on the Wii.

Nooooooo! Get Goldeneye 007 instead!

Sorry to dethrone your choice though. :cry:

Thanks for all the tips!

If the snow dies down and I manage to get out of bed tomorrow I will be going to town to pick up Donkey Kong Country Returns, Resident Evil 4 and maybe Goldeneye, with Mario Galaxy 1 + 2 next on the wishlist :) I'll keep checking this thread :)

I'll throw in a suggestion that the OP posts what genres they enjoy before we blindly suggest anymore games that they might not like. :)

We can suggest the entire Wii library and only find the OP a few games they like.

I really liked Warioland Shake It and would recommend that for you and your girlfriend. It's not a particularly difficult game to complete, so if you want extreme difficulty it's not going to be for you (though trying to get all the challenges would be pretty difficult I think, and the bosses are challenging). The main thing is that the game is a lot of fun and the use of motion control in it is great (and makes sense). Yeah, if you are ultra-anti-motion-control you aren't going to like it, but if you like motion controls when done right, this is one of them IMHO.

No offense taken...haven't bought Goldeneye yet myself, $50 is above my strike price, lol...but Conduit can be found for half that or less! :booty:

Wario Land is pretty good. I didn't quite finish it (that's actually a good idea for this coming weekend) but I got what I felt was my $14 out of it.

Wario Land is really, really good and a beauty to look at. Also, Sonic Colors is a must-have IMO!

If you don't already own them, then:
-Resident Evil 1
-Resident Evil 0
-Resident Evil 4
-Pikmin

Wii exclusives:
-Super Mario Galaxy
-The Munchables
-Super Mario All-Stars
-Rabbids Go Home
-Super Paper Mario
-No More Heroes 2
-Metroid Prime 3 is okay

Stuff I haven't played yet but which is probably good:
-Super Mario Galaxy 2
-New Super Mario Bros.

Haven't Played, but interesting:
-Batman: the Brave and the Bold-playing this now-pretty good side scrolling fighter/action game-actually pretty funny, if you don't mind the intentional slightly cheesyness
-Muramasa
-Sonic Colors
-Kirby's Epic Yarn
-Goldeneye

Donkey Kong Country Returns
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Mario Kart Wii
Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2
Super Smash Bros. Brawl (solo is OK, your better off with 2-4 players though)
New Super Mario Bros Wii
Trauma Center series
Guitar Hero 3 (it's OK I guess)
