I still need to burn the 500 points I got back for the Wii internet browser on a NES game. What NES game would you recommend for a non-hardcore gamer who likes sports, racing and mini games (or any game that can be played with a preschooler)?
(if it helps, I've never played any of the offered NES games)

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats

I bought Super Mario Bros. 2.

But wait a tic, you've never played any of the games offered? You go and buy Super Mario Bros. 3 NOW mister.

I too need to get a 500 pt NES game, though I'm having a hard time finding the "One Free Game Title" Button. I got the message on my Wii from Nintendo saying that it is located at the top of the Shop Channel yet I can not find it ANYWHERE in the damn Shop Channel, am I just stupid?

You really cannot miss it. It should be to the left of the "add more wii points" button near the bottom of the screen. It is a pretty big button. If you do not see it, maybe you should shoot an email over to Nintendo Customer Support.

I got Super Mario Bros. 3 for my free game.

Blaster Master is suppose to be really good, though I've never played it. NintendoLife has a review you can check out to see if it sounds good to you:

I hate to be that guy, but you *did* spend 500 points on the Internet Channel at some point, right? If you didn't, there isn't going to be a button.

I got the message from them, too (twice, in fact), and I got the Internet Channel for free. Kind of a tease.

Thanks for all the suggestions. In the end I've decided on Donkey Kong :).

Quick reminder for everybody who also purchased the Wii internet browser. Today is the last day to claim the free NES game
