Found an used one on ebay, and won the auction for 53 bux. What games should I get for it? Sorry, I just saw the main thread. Close this one and merge it please.

Are you fucking serious? There is a new one coming out and will play all the original's games. Then again, that thing is rumored to be 350 which is too high and 50 is pretty low.

Mario galaxy games, Zelda skyward sword, Kirby. Maybe cursed mountain. That game was okay and the collectors edition was really cheap. That's really all I can recommend.

All the main Nintendo franchises are pretty much winners. If you got a BC Wii, pick up some older Gamecube games if you haven't.

^for $53, it's so worth it. It's less than most games now and even so, if it's a BC Wii, it's still able to play Gamecube games where as the Wii U afaik can not.

I second the gamecube games. Not only are they cheap as hell, but there are tons of fun games.

Yeah, once I got to thinking about the WIi U being backwards compatible I kind of regretted it. But it is backwards compatible with the GameCube, so hopefully it's worth it. I've owned a wii in the past. Picked up Mario Galaxy for $10.50. I have heard it is awesome, so there's a start.

$53 for a Wii or...

$350+ for a Wii U...

Yeah I think you made the right decision.

Especially if you got a BC Wii. There are so many good Gamecube games if you haven't played one before.

Some good games others haven't mentioned:

Monster Hunter Tri
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Super Paper Mario
Sonic Colors

Definitely pick up the Mario Galaxy games.

My favorite Wii game is Super Smash Bros. So add that to your list of must buy!

I would also suggest Wii Sports and Boom Blox.

I myself just picked up a special edition red wii w/new super mario bros and wii sports a few weeks ago so I could play Xenoblade Chronicles. I can't recommend the game enough!

Also, Donkey Kong Country Returns and Super Smash Bros Brawl are going to $30 starting this Sunday, plus Pikmin 2 w/new play controls for $20.

Couldn't agree more with this posters recommendations.

I'll throw my recommendations at:

Punchout
Geometry Wars Galaxies
Madworld
Zack and Wiki

Grab for WiiWare -
Castlevania Rebirth
and Contra Rebirth

Both of those are gems.

And of course, any first party titles. I especially like Rhythm Heaven Fever.

Worth it so you can display gamecube games via component cable if anything (especially if your main TV is a HDTV), wii component cables are very common but gamecube cables are very uncommon and expensive, and also some models of the cube don't even have the extra port for component. At least I think that is what the extra port is used for. Anyone who doesn't have a Wii yet and has an HDTV if you can get a Wii for $40-50 bucks it would be worth it for this feature alone. Its probably cheaper to buy a Wii at this point than to track down the alternate gamecube cables.

Buy a cheap Wii now play what is good in the library, pick up Wii U down the line when all the games are out and the console has dropped in price.

I recommend Opoona if you are looking for a very unique RPG.

If you play first party games avoid Pokemon Pokepark like the plague, it is the most boring and uninteresting game I think I have ever played in my life and I have played some turds. I honestly think I got more enjoyment out of Hannah montana and hIgh school musical for xbox 360 even though I was just going for the achievements for a quick score boost especially since I got the games super cheap, because those games actually had game to them. In pokepark all you do is play a few minigames and run around and make friends with pokemon.

New Wiis don't have GameCube ports, if you recall.

I recommend Zack & Wiki, definitely the best 3rd party game released on Wii, as well as Punch-Out.

EDIT:
For Wii Ware I recommend Excitebike: World Rally and Mega Man 9 (This one is the best game on the system)

Batman: The Brave and the Bold - without a doubt. Wayforward is an amazing developer and this game is great, especially with two players.

I think TRU has it for $20 and they're offering two for $30 on all $20 Wii games.

And on WiiWare, I recommend Target Toss: Pro Bags. Maybe its a midwest thing but I love me some bags.

Most people who have already replied have given good recommendations. Okami was my favorite game experience on the Wii. I don't think anyone has mentioned Wii Sports Resort yet, if you're into that kind of game it's really fun. For Wiiware, the Excitebike game is a blast. And for Gamecube, if you never played Eternal Darkness it is an excellent game.

Now Playing:

If you like JRPGs, I'd recommend Skies of Arcadia Legends for the game cube, although you might have a hard time finding a copy.

Kirby's Epic Yarn

If anyone has told you this game is not worth having, don't believe the hate. Kirby's Epic Yarn is one of the most charming games currently on the market. The visuals are nothing short of inspired.

I would also throw out a recommendation for Endless Ocean: Blue World.

More shameless promotion of one of my lists for Wii games in 2010 (link, click it!).

I'm thinking I might just go ahead and do one for every year, as I think with the Wii U out soon, more people are going to be asking this question. I think the box art visual helps, as some good games will get lost in the sea of text otherwise.

Also I would like to add Bit.Trip Complete, one awesome game that hasn't be mentioned yet, great value for the $20 or less on Amazon.

I think this is a very good idea. I found your list quite informative. While I have acquired a significant number of titles on that list, there were a few that had passed me by. (and that I will be keeping an eye out for at used game stores) The Wii shelves at used game stores tend to be stuffed with dross that is difficult to sift through. Knowing about some lesser-known titles ahead of time would make the search for worthwhile bargains a lot easier.

Alright, so you encouraged me to take on every year now, starting with 2006, as it was pretty easy to do by comparison.

I also find this list good to compare up against the Wii U launch titles, which the Wii U's offerings look miles better to me in 20/20 hindsight. Then again I'm sure there are many other games that looked promising in October 2006 that failed miserably upon release, so take that as you will for now.

I believe I already have most of the notable stand-outs from 2006. And its quite understandable that the 2006 would be so short, the Wii only had a month and a half in that window, after all. I would imagine the 2007 list should be much more interesting.
