Good games for Nintendo Wii

Make some recommendations. I like driving sims - the more realistic the better - and first person shoot 'em ups. I also like RPG's to some extent.

There really aren't driving sims for the Wii unless you are trolling... you really only have Mario Kart.

Okami is good, and all the Legend of Zelda games- Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess.

I honestly have very little idea what's out there...all I know is that my Wii is underutilized. Severely.

Is it one of the early Wiis? If it is you can use it as a Gamecube. Epic Mickey I heard is okay, not great.

I honestly don't use the Wii either. I borrowed Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes and I may get Legend of Zelda Wind Waker for it.

You can also use the Virtual Console and play vintage games on it. That's how you get Majora's Mask and Ocarina of Time.

It was purchased December 2011, if that means anything.

I played Metal Gear Solid years ago, that was a fun game...I might have to check that out...

If you can flip up the side port and find 4 controller ports and a place to put a memory card, then yes, you can play Gamecube games on it.

Other good Wii games- Super Paper Mario, Resident Evil 4 and Super Mario Galaxy.

What kind of RPGs? If you like JRPGs then apparently Xenoblade is great. The Mario Galaxies are great, if you can find the Metroid Prime Trilogy, then at least the first one is great (they pretty much go downhill, but start real high up).. if you like old stuff, then have a cruise through the Virtual Console offerings..

Well, the Fallout series was my favourite RPG, so something more along those lines...

I played Call of Duty (I think it was World at War) on the Wii before and i didn't like the motion control. Idk if the sensitivity was too high but i was doing double spins when i barely moved the controller

F1 for the Wii is mmm, OK. LONG way from a "sim" but still fun and midly challenging.

For you tho' jcp I'd have thought "Just Dance" series would make your night

I am a terrible dancer :P

I played Call of Duty: Big Red One on PS2, I can imagine the controls would be pretty different on Wii...

For some odd reason Wii games stay at their full price for a very long time.

PC games get cheap pretty quickly, but for the most part if you wait a year most PS3 and 360 games are under $30, if not at $20.

I lost interest in the Wii within 6 months of getting it. My dad purchased it for bowling and not much else.

A bit of an awkward moment for me, as I'm using the Wii more than the PS3 now.

I borrowed Skyward Sword from a friend along with the Wii Motion Plus. I'm trying to beat it with as little cheating as possible (looking up guides online and such). It's actually slightly frustrating at the beginning because the motion controls are strange- they're slightly unresponsive and not exactly 1:1.

Because I'm borrowing the game, I'm trying my darned hardest to beat it before I leave the place I rent.

He recommended it to me because he's a big Zelda nut... and frankly so am I. I'm about 1/3 of the way in. It takes about 3-4 hours for it to get good. I'm frankly only playing it because I can do it for "free".

I also bought Majora's Mask on the Virtual Console. I never finished Majora's Mask on the N64 and frankly I physically can't. The console broke. So I'm finishing it up on the Wii.

And I still need to finish Twin Snakes.
