My favorites on the VC are Kirby's Dream Course and Super Mario World. Paper Mario, Donkey Kong Country 1+2, Bomberman 93, and Street Fighter II Turbo are also good. The selection is pretty impressive overall even if the new releases have started to slack off a bit.

Is Sin and Punishment frustrating as well?

I hear Treasure and I immediately think Old School Hardcore Shooter.


It's a little tough but not that hard. Mind you, I played with the GC controller and it was horrible because of hard it was to play the game but even then, I got pretty far at it.

I really need a good alternative (other than the Wiimote dangling Classic Controller).

Did anyone REALLY think harvey birdman was gonna be good?

Honestly?

I remember people were saying "OMG ITS LIKE PHOENIX WRIGHT BUT FOR THE DS LETS GO GET IT ASAP PRE ORDER GOGO" And it turned out to be terrible.

Expect that game to go 19.99 real quick -_- :(

So, do they old sports games hold up at all?
- Punch Out
- Blades of Steel
- Ice Hockey
- Tecmo Bowl (no names apparently)
- Baseball Stars 2
- NES Playaction Football

Not sure what else is there....I still have to buy some VC games.

There's a forgotten gem on the VC called Super Mario World. One of those games that came out before the SNES was able to pick up steam. You know, in the early days when Nintendo sold 1 console for every 5 of Sega's. As a result of poor market timing, sales of this "Super Mario" World suffered.

Be sure to stick with it through the early stages. It's kind of odd--dinosaur riding and mushroom eating (WTF!)--but it will pay off. Plus, there are turtles that walk on their hind legs. Hilarious!

Personally my favorite game, but it's not worth it to shell out $8 to replay it...yet again

Anyways, I strongly recomend it to for any "platform" fans out there

And before the question arises, It's a pretty basic game and it isn't hard (though challenging at times)

I'm now a new Wii owner, and a cheap one at that. I really need some new software that won't break my already fractured budget. I like games that are pretty long with good gameplay and plot. I was wondering if you guy know any good "Bang for your Buck" games. Games that will hold attention until I can do more. Thanks in advance.

Not sure how much Elebits goes for these days, but it had alot of replay value to me when i had my Wii. The ability to create/edit your own stages is just something i'd consider "bang"ing.

To be honest, if you can pay full price for it.. Mario Galaxy can last you quite a while. It's very worth the $50.

But, if your looking for something along the budget titles then I'll recommend Ghost Squad! $30 (sometimes $20 at Amazon, and has been reported to be on clearance for $10 at Target). Short game, but it's A LOT of fun. You can get a lot of replay value out of it.

Resident Evil 4, although, I must say, it's just plain wrong to own a Wii and not have Super Mario Galaxy. It's definitely worth the $50 dollar price tag.

Zack and Wiki is only $30 and will last you a good amount of time.

If you have someone to play with Wii Play.

Also, if you like GTA style games (and IMO I found this to be better than any GTA game), Godfather is $30 now and it's awesome. I sunk 50 hours into it, and cannot recommend it enough. One of my top Wii games.

Fire Emblem- Really Long, Good Gameplay and Plot.
Mario Galaxy- Because it is fucking Mario Galaxy and it will last awhile.
Resident Evil IV Wii Edition- It is so good you will want to come back for seconds.
Zack and Wiki- You will spend hours saying what the Fuck do I do now? As long as you don't use any help sites like gamefaqs this game is long.

Resident Evil 4 and The Godfather will do wonders for your body and soul.

Im going to try to stay below $30

Zack Wiki
Scarface
Godfather
RE 4
MLB Power Pros (not sure what price point this is at right now)
Madden 07 (haven't played o8 but 07 was good)

If I had to choose just 1 it would be MLB Power Pros. If you aren't in to sports it would be RE 4. If you have already played RE4 it would be Godfather. If you have already played Godfather it would be Scarface. If you have already played Scarface it would be Zack and Wiki. :)


I liked all those quite a bit and I think they are all below $30

If you go to much lower in price you get into the crap kids game price range. Mercury Meltdown is $20 but Im not sure of the depth on that one. Marble Mania might be in the 20's. It's a great game but not something you would consider bang for your buck. Same goes for Rayman.

As far as a length + quality combination, Fire Emblem (Yay!) and Godfather are your best bets.

Zelda Twilight Princess, Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition, The Godfather (unless you've already played in on a different console), and Super Smash Brothers Brawl when it comes out in March.

Wii Play is actually really fun as long as you've got a second player. The tank game is VERY addicting

OP, you might also be interested in spending $20 in a Wii Points card. There are some solid titles on the Virtual Console, some are VERY much worth their price. Paper Mario @ $10 is a great price.

If you're making a tally of votes I'll add one to the Resident Evil 4 column. I've hated every RE game ever made until the Wii version.

I rarely finish games to completion but I've played through RE4 3 times already. Something about killing zombies with real aiming makes me randy.

Zelda was also really fun game that my son and I have put a total of over 100 hours into.

Sir_Fragalot has an awesome list.

I will also add a few older titles:

Zelda Twilight Princess -- most folks probably forgot about it since it was the first game they played, and beat. But it's a lengthy rpg and it's a lot of fun.

Super Paper Mario -- RPG plus old school platform elements, plus a hilarious story line.

Metroid Prime Corruption -- Fun 1st person puzzle / shooter (more puzzle though)

Super Mario Galaxy -- In my mind it's the best mario to date. Be prepared to be playing for a long, long time if you're going for 100% completion.


It would be easier to narrow down the choices if you posted the types of games you like to play, or past titles you've enjoyed.
