Westminster. I hate that store. The people who work there are 90% retarded. The Orange store is so much better.

A game not many people know of, but I just got yesterday and is a lot of fun is Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. If you're not familiar with the FE series (DS games), it's very similar to the gameplay of Final Fantasy: Tactics. If that's your cup of tea, you'll really enjoy it.

But yeah, other than that, I agree wholeheartedly with everyone who has said these games:

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - Just like every other Zelda game since 64. It's a lot of fun, and very addicting

Super Mario Galaxy - Again, pretty similar to Mario 64, but with a lot of neat twists and quirks.

Super Smash Brothers Brawl - Stays true to the SSB series and is a ton of fun!


There are a lot more games that cater uniquely to the Wii. The Trauma Center series games on Wii are fun and a unique twist (you're a surgeon operating on patients). I found the Madden games a lot more fun on Wii once you get used to playing with the controls. It makes it difficult to go back to playing on PS3/360 though, because you try to use the accelerometer controls which don't exist

Others I haven't played yet but want to include: Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Warioware: Smooth Moves, Super Mario Strikers Charged, and others. Need more money (and time)!!

All in all, I'm very happy I made the Wii purchase. It's a lot of fun, and while there weren't a ton of good games out early on, now there are more than enough to keep you occupied!

I've had a wii for a while now, I don't play it to often, usually just when a new game comes out that I've been waiting for. So far my favorite games are Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

I found the aiming on Metroid Prime pretty hard, but I never really sat down and tried to learn it.

Twilight princess is a very good game if you're into the zelda series and I would recommend no more heroes, even though I haven't tried it yet.

I'm curious what had happened in BestBuy...

According to people around here, selling something you get for free is wrong and unethical

I've been logging a ton of hours on my Wii over the last few weeks.. Super Mario Galaxy ate up a good week or two of my time (One of the best console games I've played recently), I put about 20 hours into Super Paper Mario (Just beat it today).. Now I'm working my way through Zelda, and when I'm done with that, Metroid's gonna get some lovin'.

Can anyone confirm or deny if Wii Play is any good? I was considering getting it, if for no other reason than it's marginally more expensive than a Wiimote by itself. I've also been considering Link's Crossbow Training (With Wii Zapper).. Haven't heard much good about the game, but for $20, I guess you can't really go wrong. I'm sure I'll want the Zapper eventually anyhow.

Anyhow, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is on my "must get" list, and later on, Mario Kart.

wii play is kind of lame. there are only 2 or 3 games which are fun. the games that have consumed my time so far are:

Bully (finally beat it last night, but going go continue playing anyways)
SSBB (of course)
Super Paper Mario
Mario Party 8 (i have a copy for sale, PM me if interested)
Scarface (kind of like GTA, but Scarface theme. im a huge fan of Scarface)
Mario Kart (comes with a steering wheel too!)

How is Mario Kart Wii consuming your time if it doesn't come out for 2+ more weeks?

So far I've played through Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario, I just finished Zelda (now I'm going through to collect the last heart pieces and Poe's souls.. Finished with the Golden Bugs). After this, I've still got Metroid Prime 3 to complete, then it'll be time for a new game. Resident Evil 4 is cheap and high-rated, I think I'll check that one out next.

Oh, and by the way, I went ahead and got the Wii Zapper and Link's Crossbow Training. As expected, the game isn't terrific, but at $20 you can't really go wrong. I mostly just wanted the Zapper anyway.

Oh, and speaking of Wii Play, is there anything on there that might appeal to a 3-4 year old? So far I don't really have any games that appeal to that age group, and I'd like to see my son try out a game. Besides, I need another Wiimote, and it's only $10 more with the game so it seems like a fantastic value.
