Wii Games or 1.5 TB Hard Drive

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I am trying to debate if I should get a couple Wii games or a 1.5 TB Drive. I have 3 gift cards to Best Buy and I am having trouble deciding.

Here are the games I was thinking about getting:
Mario Kart Wii
Wii Speak
Animal Crossing
Ghost Squad
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Super Paper Mario
Super Mario Galaxy

Or this:

Seagate 1.5 TB Drive


Now, I would be getting this stuff at Newegg if I had a choice, but honestly, really not sure what I should get.

I enjoy Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, and Mario, however I do need a new HDD.

Either way it will work out. HDD for music for parties, or games for fun and parties.

So any opinions?

I would go with the HDD, but I really have no desire to play any Wii games so, don't listen to me. That's an awesome price for it as well.

Mario Kart, Galaxy, and Metriod. Mario Galaxy is so fun, and Kart has some addicting online play. Unless you can get all those games, which for the Wii games

WiiSpeak isn't really used much unless you have a bunch of Wii friends, so maybe axe that out. And GhostSquad or the new House of the Dead are great on rails shooters

Unless you record everything, and a billion songs, and other needs for htat much space.
