Mad you are awesome, thanks for the list of games to check out. Cave Story was the first thing I bought, I'm enjoying the hell out of it so far. As someone who was always kind of reluctant on the wii I'm really enjoying it so far although after years of gaming on the 360 and ps3 the ass ugly graphics of the wii do get to me some times but it's not terribly bad.

Are you using a component cable and have the Wii set to progressive scan and widescreen? We have a 360 and a Wii and the Wii, while certainly not HD, looks pretty damn good, at least in the better games. Certainly there are Wii games (probably plenty) that do look crappy. Maybe that it looks good to me is because I started with the Wii (well, with older consoles) first, though, and have stuck to the best games for the most part.

As far as games to recommend that haven't already been listed, I recommend Warioland Shake It. It's really cheap now and quite fun. It's pretty easy, yes, but it's fun, and there is plenty of challenge in the challenges if you want to go back and do those. At the going rate right now, even just an initial playthrough is worth the asking price for sure.

Excitebots: Trick Racing is a really fun game too. For me, at least, a lot more fun then Mario Kart, plus it's also really cheap now. I recommend using a Wii Wheel with it, but others do fine with just the remote. It is a motion-controlled racer, but the controls work great and are integral to the game. It's also got a sense of humor. Even the unlocks in the game are ridiculous - there's a ludicrous number of things to unlock. Not to mention betting on your online races! That's the best/fastest way to earn money to buy and unlock stuff, and the online play works beautifully. Great game!

EDIT: also, though I haven't gotten to far in it yet, so far I've enjoyed Silent Hill: Shattered Memories quite a bit. The atmosphere is great and the sense of panic you get when being chased is palpable. Having to shake/throw off the monsters by actually throwing/shaking them off... that is a great use of motion control, even if it is "waggle". But... I really haven't gotten too far yet, so I'll call it a tentative recommendation at this point. Also be forewarned that you never shoot - you have no weapons. You have a flashlight (which is very cool to use with the Wii Remote), but no guns or other weapons. This isn't a problem, and in fact is key to the experience, but worth noting in case you expected otherwise. It's about exploration and about running away in a panic!

I got Light Gun Fever!

Just picked up House Of The Dead 2 & 3 as well as Overkill.

Overkill is a lot of fun right now. Any other Light Gun/Rail Shooter games out for Wii that should check out? Heard Ghost Squad is worth the $11-15.

though overkill is the best one imo :)

Thanks for the recommendations!!

Overkill was pretty awesome. My brother and I got addicted pretty quick playing through it tonight. Went through it twice since we got it today (even if it is a short game).

I'll probably see if I can pick up RE:UC on the cheap as well as Ghost Squad.

nice one crotch! I hate any thread that starts with ''recommend me...''


Why did you get in this thread if you so much hate it? Meanwhile, I am just amaze at how fast the games we enjoy evolve. Video gaming have come a long way since Pong, Pac Man and Space Invaders. Economists incorporated decided to do a study for Entertainment Software Association that was called "Video Games in the 21st Century: The 2010 Report.” These studies indicated that in 2009, there was $5 billion added to help the economy from the video game industry. The U.S. economy was shown up by the industry which grew between 2005 and 2009 10 percent.

I think I have the main games every Wii owner should have or at least want, but I might be missing a few. Any suggestions? I'm looking to expand my collection a bit but beyond my "I Know I'm Buying these" list I'm not really sure.

UPDATE: I ended up hitting Target's B2G1Free and picked up SSB:Brawl, SMG1, and PokePark. Now I just "need" to buy Zelda: Twilight Princess and my list of games I pretty much "must" have is complete (besides games still not released).

UPDATE2: Edited/Updated as of 1/15/2011. I have to admit, I'm surprised I only have a 57 game collection.

Kirby's Epic Yarn, especially with local co-op, is great. Endless Ocean 2 is also amazing. Metroid Prime 3 should be dirt cheap, but know that the saves from MP3 to MP3 on MPT do not carry over.

Yeah, I own Kirby's Epic Yarn and am about halfway through it. I'd have completed it, but my attention span doesn't allow me to play a game straight through.

I ended up picking up Brawl, SMG 1 and PokePark Wii today from Target's B2G1 Free. I was kinda skeptical about getting PokePark, but I didn't really like Goldeneye on the N64 (sue me) and their other $50 Wii games I either owned or wasn't interested in.

Fun fact: Prior to Metroid Other M's release in August, I'd never bought a game via Pre-order/during release week. Since then I've picked up Metroid, Kirby's Epic Yarn, and PokePark during their release weeks, and will be picking up FlingSmash, DKC: Returns, Epic Mickey, and the 25th Anniversary Mario Collection during their release weeks. Yeah.

Think of it as the new Wii Play.

Not great, but it's a 10 dollar game attached to a 40 dollar accessory.

From what I have heard, unless you need the remote, don't buy it.

I could use a spare remote, so I'm going to get it from GameStop. Using a $10 coupon and a $25 GC on it. $18.xx after tax is fine with me.

I have an offer to trade a copy of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearer for Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. I look at the review, and it seems SH had way better reviews then FF. However I figured I would ask if it is indeed a better game.

I know this is pretty old, but I think that's a pretty good trade (if you can still do it). I haven't really played either of them, but I think SH:SM is a bit harder to find, and Crystal Bearers is pretty cheap at places like Target.

I'd go ahead with that trade, if you still can. That's probably a good trade in your favor.

Thx, I ended up doing it and I enjoy the SH game. Very creepy for a wii game.

Well, I picked up a bunch of Wii rail shooters (Dead Space, HOTD Overkill, RE chronicles games, etc.). Would anyone recommend me a good gun shell? Or is the default wiimote/nunchuk the best control scheme?

So far, I was looking at the Zapper, Nyko Perfect Shot, and the Nerf Switchshot.

Nyko Perfect shot is the way to go. Zapper is awful.

The Nyko has a layout that mimics a pistol and feels natural for light gun games. The trigger feels firm when you pull it and the perfect shot has a built in plug to re-route the nun-chuck port so the whole setup makes sense.

The Zapper is crappy attempt to throw some cheap plastic together and call it a gun. The nun-chuck is located in the back of the Zapper, which means the trigger you will be using for most games is the forward trigger. It's small for anyone other than a child, and feels terribly awkward.

The easiest way for me to explain why the Zapper is awful is this: take your hands and make two fists, line them in front of you by putting your trigger finger hand in front of the other hand by about 4 inches, now imagine holding your hands in that position to play a game. The Nyko allows you to hold the controller separate like you would with a wiimote + nun-chuck combo, it's just that you're holding a pistol shape instead of the wii-mote.

Look at some pictures, you'll be able to see what I mean.

If you are lucky, you might be able to find some Perfect Shots on clearance. I picked up a camo one on clearance at Target a couple of weeks ago for $7.49.
