Default New Wii, what games?

just got a Wii for graduation. pretty sweet. me and the girly were playin for a long time last night and finally i have a system and some games (WiiPlay and WiiSports) that she enjoys.

so, what games out there are "must haves"? any games you guys really love or really show off the system's controls? i like the zelda series, maybe the new one?

Zelda: TP if you haven't played it yet (doesn't really show off the controls) and Okami (same)

Both are just great games, Okami being a must.

Super Metroid
Mario Galaxy
Super Paper Mario

One of my personal favorites is Geometry Wars Galaxies, but others may not consider this a must have.

EDIT: Actually, 'Metroid Prime 3', not 'Super Metroid'...but you know what I meant.

Okami is definitely a must. It's one of those games you have to see and play for yourself though. Personally I'd also rate its graphics up there with any 'next gen' game.

ok, so ive been playing around with the Wii features and first let me say, wow. this thing is awesome.

i love the wireless. it's easy and works great. i love how you can use SD cards to store game data, and i actually think the graphics are pretty good at 480p. i also like the full BC with gamecube games and that the accessories dont cost an arm and a leg.

no wonder this thing is sellin like crazy. im a big fan. just need to get some more games for it

You sound like me the first few days I bought my Wii. Don't worry, it will pass.

Mario Galaxy is a must have game. Best game on the Wii.... even though the system is garbage, Mario Galaxy was very well made.

Hahaha... exactly. Mine was the most amazing thing ever for a week or so... then it became something I pretty much never turned on. Ever.

Had my Wii since launch. As a second system, I love it. If it was my only system, I would imagine I would get a little peeved at the time in between quality game releases.

Zack and Wiki is another game you should give a try if you like old school style point and click puzzlers.

My suggestions would be :

Warioware Smooth Moves, Elebits, Midway Pinball Hall of Fame, and to a lesser extent Super Smash Bros Brawl.

I hated Super Paper Mario. Zelda TP, Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3 are all OK, but I wasn't thrilled by any of them.
