You guys should really pick up some of the great GC games out there....Smash Bros, Mario Sunshine, Pikmin, Rogue Squadron, Zelda Wind Waker, Metroid, etc.

 Got Sunshine, Smash and getting Wind Waker and Metroids soon probably.



Thanks to Blacksaber for the sig!

Grab a wavebird and check out these games:

Super Mario Sunshine - Not as revolutionary as Mario 64 was but a great platformer. And it's very difficult as you get into the later levels.

Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader - Awesome action flight game. I've yet to see developers create a better looking game on the Wii than Rogue Leader. And it was a launch title!

Pikmin 2 - Great addictive RTS style game. I preferred the sequel because they got rid of the time limit.

Eternal Darkness - Great mature storyline and the sanity effects still creep me out.

Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker - Great art style and the game play is mazing. If they didn't rush the game and left out those 2 dungeons it would have been my favorite Zelda ever.

Metroid Prime - My favorite game of last gen, everyone should play this game. Amazing beautiful designed worlds, satisfyinggame play challenging bosses.

excellent choices with rogue squadron and WW, WW is my favourite game... whats this about 2 dungeons and a rush job?...damn ninty should know not to rush zelda. as for the other choices i never had them, but i am considering pikmin2 if i find it cheap enough, and i kind of wish i had got eternal darkness over REmake now... maybe i'll find that too. can i also reccomend wave race: blue storm for a fun, and very tricky racer and chibi robo 'cos it's ace. battalion wars was apparently great too, though i am waiting for the new wii one. oh little off toppic i suppose... sorry. i have a wii, had a gc and still have an n64 n64 was what got me into 'gaming proper'. had a megadrive before but didnt know about the gaming world till 2000 ish...when i was already nintendofyed [though the main reason i only own nintendo is price, cant afford 2 systems per gen

Yep. Never owned a Nintendo console before, bought the Wii as a (joint) present for my dad. It was kind of his idea, he saw the advert for Wii Sports on the tv and said 'wow that looks like fun', so we decided to get him one for his birthday.

Personally, I prefer to play the PS3 we have, but Wii is great for older members of the family to get involved. I bought RE4 for myself, which is fantastic, but I'm going to hold off getting anymore games for a while (I'll buy them as presents for family members - another bonus of having all the family involved, you can buy them presents you will actually enjoy as well :D ).

Smash Bros, Mario Kart and Zelda are the ones I intend to buy though.



No GC, last (and only) console owned was NES (since PC is not considered a console).

Enjoying it so far, aside from some minor problems. 

Looking forward to lots of games, but will have to see more before a definite buy.



I am a PC gamer, and also have a NDS now, but without access to a Nintendo Wii until End of 2007.

Currently playing: Super Smash Brothers Brawl(Wii), Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer(DS), Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime (DS), WiiFit(Wii)

Games Recently Beaten: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King (Normal; Very Hard after the next DLCs become available)

1 word: RTFA

I have a Wii, and I haven't been with Nintendo for the past two generations. I've skipped both the N64 and the Gamecube. No regrets whatsoever...I don't feel like I've missed much.

As for the Wii, I love it. There are plenty games out already to justify the investment (Zelda, Trauma Center, Excite Truck, Elebits and Godfather come immediately to mind), and lots of games to look forward to. I'm especially anticipating No More Heroes, Mario Galaxy, Zack and Wiki, and Trauma Center: New Blood.



Wii # 4594 3226 7132 0861 (please PM me your if you add me, so I can add you too!)

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I have a Wii and never had a Cube. And now that I've started buying the old Cube games that I missed out on, I have no idea why I got a PS2 over it.
