Default Best Wii games

I got my kid a Wii for X-mas, any suggestions on games?

He's getting a Lego star wars game, MP3 and I think Mario Galaxies already.

How old is your kid? My kids love the new Crossbow Training game that comes with the new Zapper. They also play Mario Party and My Sims all the time.

argh i've slipped into the console thread!!

er that's the great thing about the wii.. 99% of the games suck!

i've got super monkey ball and sonic and can recommend them both, esp monkey ball. anything with "mario" in the title is good, and i'm saying that as a man who hates mario!

if you want a game for yourself then get tiger woods 08. also resident evil 4 or the light gun variant, umbrella chronicles. both solid examples of what the other devs haven't been able to capture.

Madden 08, Mario Galaxy, and Wii sports are all fun. I own Zelda too but haven't played it much yet.

Ugh, how could I forget Zack and Wiki? BUY THIS GAME! If this game doesn't end up selling well I don't want to hear anymore complaints about third party support for Nintendo.
