I like 'thinking'/action/RPG/mystery type games? Any suggestions?
PC games I liked best: All the Star War Games & some of the spin off's.
Siberia & Siberia II were excellent.
Well we have a pile of Wii games ourselves.... which we'll be either selling or giving away soon since we'll be off to another country soon and I doubt they'd play properly.
I'd Check out the Zelda Games, Metroid Prime 3 (Or the Trilogy), My wife's into the Harry Potter game that was based on the last movie.... you can make potions and whip out spells like the controller's a wand, etc....... And I'd highly recommend any of the Prince of Persia games for the Wii, especially any of the recent ones...... they were made by Ubisoft Montreal and the music was all made by Stuart Chatwood from a little Canadian Rock band called The Tea Party..... very fun and the stories are impressive. (The Disney movie, while good, didn't really do the Prince of Persia story justice)
There's a few Final Fantasy games for the Wii if you're into RPG, but I can't say I've played them.... but I imagine they're worth a spin.
There's also the Guitar Hero and Rock Band games..... don't feel bad sucking on easy because it took me months to get somewhat decent and only after three years or so have I been able to move to Hard...... but the music selections are vast and I imagine there's a number of songs you'll come across that you'd love to play..... it's not all tied to recent music or one particular genre.
Besides all that, hooking the Wii to the internet and playing online is all free and on top of all that, there's the Wii Store where you can buy and download onto your system, thousands of classic games from the Atari, Commodore 64, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, N64, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Turbo Graphix 16, Neo Geo, and a bunch more..... not to mention all the WiiWare games designed specifically for the Wii you can buy online and play on your system.
And.... All Gamecube games, memory cards and controllers all fit into the Wii, so if there's a Gamecube game you'd like to try that you see at a game store or local flea market, pick it up and pop it in the Wii.
^ So to say the least, if you have a Wii, you have a vast selection of games to choose from, from a vast selection of game systems.
.... But yeah, I hop on my WiiFit from time to time, but recently I've been too busy, it's just collecting dust.
